Martyrdom In The Sikh Tradition - Playing The Game Of Love - Book By Louis E. Fenech

Introduction To 'Martyrdom In The Sikh Tradition, Playing The Game Of Love' By Louis E. Fenech

The notion of Martyrdom and the role of Martyrs in religious and political history constitutes a major component in discourse among Sikh throughout the world. This book examines how and Why Sikhs began to represent their history as a history of persecutions and Martyrdoms and how these understandings continue to play such a vital role in the Sikh community today. It explores the different approaches to the Martyrdom of Guru Arjan, Guru Teg Bahadur, and other prominent Sikhs. Through an analysis of Sikh scriptures and eighteenth and nineteenth century Sikh literature it demonstrates how the Singh Sabha 'reform' movement and the heroism of the Akalis in the 1920s shaped historical facts and interpretations.

Fenech's interdisciplinary study is invaluable for all those interested in nineteenth century Indian religious history and in the history of the Sikh people as well as for scholars of history, sociology, religion, anthropology, politics, and culture.
