Description - Imperial Frontier by Hugh Beattie

This book describes British relations with the Pashtun tribes of Waziristan in the years after the annexation of the Punjab in 1849, exploring themes of both historical interest and current relevance. It offers the most detailed historical account that has so far been written of relations between the British Government of India and the tribes along this (or any) part of the north-west Frontier in this period. The nature of British frontier policy in Waziristan is analysed: the strategic, political, economic and cultural influences upon it are examined; ideas about how the tribes were organised and could be handled are investigated. The implications for the general question of relations between 'tribe' and 'state' are assessed, and the dialectical quality of the relationship emphasised.
