about this book

Now numbering twenty million worldwide, the Sikhs have promoted beliefs that have incurred the wrath of both Hindus and Muslims for the last five hundred years. Here, Patwant Singh provides a compelling history of the Sikhs—their origins, traditions and beliefs, as well as more recent history. The story revealed is of a movement based on tenets of compassion and humanness that transformed itself, of necessity, into a community that values bravery and military prowess, as well as spirituality.
