Very interesting way to fill in the gaps between the well known periods of Sikh history
on 13 April 2007
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.
