Read full description of the books A History of the Sikhs (1469-1839) - Vol. 1: Volume 1 : 1469-1839:Inimitable Khushwant Singh style and simplicity. Khushwant Singh has provided an informative account of Sikh history, starting with the background on how Sikh religion came to existence and how it propagated in northern India and then culminating (the book) with the end of Sikh empire.
Unlike some other authors Khushwant Singh does not seem to suffer with pre conceived opinions of historic events where the author has its own agenda to press. He has stated events clearly and provided detailed references throughout the book. At times he has clearly rejected the popular Sikh opinion which currently circulates among sikh disciples (including me) and has always followed up with his analysis and reasoning of events.
Overall this is a detailed, untainted and quick read on Sikh history.
Read information about the authorKhushwant Singh, (Punjabi: ਖ਼ੁਸ਼ਵੰਤ ਸਿੰਘ, Hindi: खुशवंत सिंह) born on 2 February 1915 in Hadali, British India, now a part of Punjab, Pakistan, was a prominent Indian novelist and journalist. Singh's weekly column, "With Malice towards One and All", carried by several Indian newspapers, was among the most widely-read columns in the country.
An important post-colonial novelist writing in English, Singh is best known for his trenchant secularism, his humor, and an abiding love of poetry. His comparisons of social and behavioral characteristics of Westerners and Indians are laced with acid wit.
