The 24 essays that make up this unique anthology, subject the Sikh question to a rigorous critical scrutiny. And I find the claim of the editors regarding ‘the twin ideals of detachment and empathy’ fairly vindicated. The general tone, on the whole is free of rancour and acrimony and the book suggests a culture of ideas. Its range and solidity and intellectual engagement lift the argument to a new level altogether. Considering the fact and the contributing scholars are drawn from 4 continents with varying ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds, the bouquet of papers presented here gives off a distinctive perfume of thought. And since the volume ensures a certain level of critical sophistication, it achieves a discipline of idiom and expression. . . . And finally, a comprehensive bibliography and an extended glossary of Punjabi terms make it the finest enterprise of its kind in Sikh studies. Its definitive character is destined to lend it the dignity of a classic.

The situation . . . today calls from the world of scholarship a serious and sober response. It is good to note that this volume is a good example of what is required.
T.N. Madan
in South Asia in Review
We have tried to represent most of the salient aspects of Sikh experience in the twentieth century. This volume will serve, we hope, as an authoritative account of the topics concerned and as a reference volume. By choosing the twentieth century as our period, we have sought to address very recent events, but with enough historical (as well as religio-cultural) background to allow us to begin to make some sense out of recent events and current crises.
