The administrative borderland strategy of the Northern Song and Liao Dynasties aimed largely at the peripheries of their administrative regions. The Northern Song Dynasty has long devoted itself to the political and military administration of the northwestern - west-ern- southwestern regions. It adopted relevant policies and measures with regard to such problems as pacification of ethnic groups and their attitudes toward the central government.The Liao Dynasty has spent one or two hundred years to chelop relevant policies and measures with regard to such problems as pacification of northeastern - north - northwestern ethnic groups and their attitudes toward the central government, at a great cost. As to the section covering the wars between the Northern Song and Liao Dynasties over the Yan - Yun areas, which has been always raising people's attention, the matter is actually has much to do with the relationship between the two states and should not therefore be regarded as common affairs. The author, by looking at the borderland administrative strategy of the Northern Song and Liao Dynasties, tells about their contributions toward borderland issues and some relevant problems to the development of our multi - ethnic state.
