"The purpose of this paper is to acquaint Departmental officials and researchers with the main themes of Indian policy and legislation from colonial times. It is not intended to be a definitive account, but rather a guide to further research, and a stimulus for policy discussion. ... It has two major sections: Pre-Confederation 1755-1867, and Post-Confederation, 1867-1951"--Preface, p. [ii].
