In The Sikhs, Khushwant Singh presents a concise history of the followers of one of the world's youngest religions. Beginning with the life and times of the founder, Guru Nanak (1469-1539), he moves on to describe the vital contribution made by the nine gurus who followed in shaping and developing the Sikh religion; the significance of the Sikh holy book, the Guru Granth Sahib, and its centrality to the religion. He examines the setting up of the Singh Sabha and the accompanying social reform, the Akali agitation for control of various Sikh shrines, and the impact of the Ghadr rebellion. Authoritative yet accessible, this is one of the most concise and readable accounts of the Sikhs and their faith. The new Afterword by Rahul Singh brings the story of the Sikhs up to date.
