Madra and Singh follow up on their impressive Warrior-Saints with this gem containing rare and thought provoking material, much of which is not found elsewhere. The accounts provide some interesting perspectives and record some practices that Sikhs today would find unusual. Boars blood in Amrit! All in all we must be careful of the biased nature of some writers who seem to view Singhs with great hostility, largely due to the threat they posed to the Mughals, with whom they had vested interests. As such, they would have been prone to repeat the negative stereotypes and propaganda projected by the declining Mughal rulers regarding this new dynamic and brave peoples, who had emerged from their midst inspite of concerted attempts at suppression and elimination. Given the lack of material covering this period, the book is a must for those interested in the development of the panth, although I personally feel that the presentation of the material in a strict chronological fashion would have better served the reader.

This is a very good book indeed, mainly because you cant get too much information on the sikhs in that period from non sikhs. Definately one for your collection if you are interested on sikh history. I also recomend "sikh history from persion sources".

If you want primary sources and eyewitness accounts of Sikh's then look no further. This book un-earth's primary sources of Sikh history. Another must have for a Sikh History library.

Another exciting book, but not to everyones taste very deep and academic indepth.

Excellent work but more for a niche market of readers

Great stuff!!
