There is mention made of the scholary work that has gone into the text in the preface. This is because the work is put into a very readable style that would suggest it hasn't had much research behind it. This may annoy those looking for a great academic study, but this also means that it will be accesible for a wider audience.

There is a period of general ignorance between the two great period of Sikh history between the Gurus and the Maharaja Rangeet Singh and this books explains what happened. The guru's lives are covered but in little detail. Whereas a significant amount of time is spent on the Misl period and Maharaja Ranjeet Singh.

Overall, I think I have to recommend this book - I just don't know of any other books that offer the same focus and quality that this one does of Sikh history.

As a sikh born in th u.k., good to know about ones history, a factual piece of writing, quite deep in parts, some points need to be read several times to digest.

Every Sikh should read it. It is the warts and all history of the Sikh religion - my religion. Makes such a change from all the usual guff that gets handed down from generation to generation. This guy has done his homework.

This item is ex library stock and it does look as though it's been well read by numerous readers. The cover is different to what I expected, however I'm sure the contents will be fine. Looking forward to reading it.

The author uses very professional English and has clearly been very well educated! Although, this made it a bit difficult to read for the average person such as myself. I suppose it's due to the fact that the Sikhs have such an in-depth history, but all the names and facts and places meant I quickly lost interest after the first few chapters. Otherwise, a fantastic read for anyone who wants to know everything about Sikh History, as long as your concentration is at its highest level!!
