This work is a study of the administration of the North-West Province Frontier from 1901 to 1919. Two aspects of the administration have been dealt with: the British Government's relations with the tribes of the frontier, and some important aspects of the civil administration of the settled districts of the Province. The first chapter deals with the formation of the Province by Curzon in 1901, and his new frontier policy. The second chapter in analysing the Government's relations with the three most important Pathan tribes, the Mahsuds, the Afridis and the Mohmands, shows how the new policy worked. The period 1915-1919 was dominated by the events of the First World War, the impact of which on the Frontier has been described in the third chapter. The fourth chapter traces the development of the means of communication such as roads and railways, which were built primarily with military and strategic objectives. The fifth and the sixth chapters describe the new land system introduced by the British in the settled districts and the Government's efforts to develop agriculture by irrigation projects. Educational development formed an important item in the civil administration of the Province; the course of this development and the educational policy of the Government constitute the theme of the last chapter.
