This book is based on a wide range of the eighteenth-century sources. It bridges the earlier and later periods of Sikh history. In addition to the political struggle of the Khalsa, their polity, religious developments, and literary and artistic expressions, this study examines the issues of caste, gender, ethics, rites and ceremonies, and concludes with a discussion of heightened consciousness of distinctive Sikh identity by the end of the period.
