This book examines the impact of the Indian army in the development of colonial Punjab. It examines the processes and extent by which the province was militarized, analyses the nature of this labour market and shows how the need to control an expanding recruiting ground led to the integration of the civil administration with the military command, therby laying the foundations of a civil-military regime in the Punjab.
