The essays on history, society and culture of the Punjab in this volume were the outcome of public lectures delivered by Dr. J.S. Grewal in 2006 as Visiting Professor in the Department of History, Punjabi University, Patiala.

His lectures covered a wide range of themes with focus on the history, culture and historiography of the Punjab in general and the Sikhs in particular. Each of these lectures is based on research and bears the mark of the scholarship of an eminent historian. As a scholar of national and international repute, his contribution to the discipline of history is distinct.
