by Lochan Singh Buxi

 Indiaclub.com Description

This volume presents translations of all major Persian sources of Sikh history unto 1765, when Sikh power was established over the Punjab, and is a part of the research and publication program of the Indian History Congress to commemorate the tercentenary of the Khalsa.

These sources offer details that are not otherwise available, and richly su0pp0lement the information preserved in the Punjabi (Gurmukhi) traditions. Yet until now, most of the Persian texts translated here have not been available in English; the translations given here thus meet a long-felt need.

These are freshly made, with much care exercised to preserve accuracy and provide adequate annotation. One of the two editors, Professor J S Grewal has contributed an introduction critically assessing the value of these texts for reconstructing Sikh history. Professor Irfan Habib, on his part, has organized the work of translation, having himself rendered a number of the texts into English for this volume.

J S GREWAL, formerly Professor of History and then Vice-Chancellor, Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar, is an eminent historian of the Sikhs, and of medieval and modern Indian history in general. His numerous works include 'Guru Nanak in History' and 'Sikhs of the Punjab'.

IRFAN HABIB, formerly Professor of History at the Aligarh Muslim University, is a well-known historian of medieval India and the author of several works including ' An Atlas of the Mughal Empire' and 'Essays in Indian History'.
