Usha Sharma (Author)
Synopsis The State of Jammu and Kashmir is one of the largest states of the Indian Union. Situated in the north-west extremity of India, it captures a strategic position in our sub-continent. Hence it has become an important issue in Indian and Pakistani politics today. Kalhana relates the story of Kashmir till the 14 century when Buddhist and Hindu ruelers ruled over it. After four centuries of Muslim rule it was conquered by Maharaja Ranhit Singh of Punjab in 1819. Soon after his death in 1839, the East India Company defeated the then Sikh ruler of Punjab who ceded Kashmir to the Company in lie of Rupees one crore. The Company sold Kashmir to Raja Gulab Singh, the Dogra ruler of Jammu. The Dogra dynasty ruled over the state till 1949. However, on the transfer of power in 1947, the State of Jammu and Kashmir acceded to India, and Ladakh, a part of that state became an integral part of India. This book chronicles all the important facts and figures in the history of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh. It is hoped that this book will be useful to those who are interested in the political events and political development of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh. The book is divided into forty-four chapters dealing with the history and politics of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh and contributed by some eminent politicians and administrators.
