Based on a wide range of 18th-century sources, this work bridges the earlier and later periods of Sikh history. In addition to the political struggle of the Khalsa, their polity, religious developments and literary and artistic expressions, it examines the issues of caste, gender, ethics and rites and ceremonies, before concluding with a discussion of the heightened consciousness of a distinctive Sikh identity by the end of the period.
