This Autobiography comprises two parts, both concerned with the authors career in Sikh Studies.

Part One is autobiographical it lays emphasis on those features of McLeods Career which have had an important influence on his relationship with the Sikh and with manner in which he has sought to give expression to them in his written works.

Two features have been particularly significant. One is his religious development which, thirtyfive years ago, led him to unbelief.

The other is his growth in understanding of the nature and value of historical studies.Part 2 concerns Sikh Studies and the vigorous attacks that have been made during the decade from 1986, and although they have subsided somewhat since the mid 1990s the feeling that were aroused during that decade have left a substantial deposited.

An attempt is made to answer these charges and to show that Mcleods analysis of Sikh history and religion has always been critical and dispassionate, yet sympathetic.
