VOLUME III NUMBER 5 March/April 1979
The title of this book is something of a misnomer. After India and China clashed in 1962 to establish their respective claims over their frontiers in the Himalayas interested scholars in their quest to find out the truth about the different claims started vigorous research to trace out the history of the Sino-Indian frontier in the Himalayan region at least since the Simla Conference of 1914 when the boundary between Tibet and North East India was settled.
