Khushwant Singh presents Sikh history with a light treatment to the Sikh Guru period and an extensive, if not slanted, presentation of modern Sikh history. Volume One covers 1469-1839; Guru Nanak Dev Ji through the British occupation.
Written in Khushwant Singh's trademark style of being accessible to a general, non-scholarly audience, the book is based on scholarly archival research.
