This monograph gives a broad survey of the spread of western secular education in Punjab during a period of thirty eight years after the British annexation of Punjab in the mid-19th century. Their new education policy and its implementation through the setting up a state wide network of schools at the primary and secondary level provided a greater exposure to people of Punjab and made its youth employable in the British India. The vast increase in education is illustrated through the drawing of graphs and charts. The account reflects the beneficial aspects of British rule and their policy towards Punjab despite being a colonial power. The survey lists the concrete steps taken to spread of modern education such as release of scholarships, setting up of schools and Museums libraries.
