A Note From the Author

I was quite thrilled when Oxford University Press approached me for this illustrated edition, which recreates the story told in A History of the Sikhs through pictures. I also thought it was a good time to do so. The community has arrived back on the national arena and is doing well in every field - be it politics, economy, sports or culture.

When they were first published in 1978, I never imagined that almost thirty years thereon, my two volume A history of the Sikhs would still be in such demand. A few years ago, I was approached by OUP to update the original edition, which I did, first to 1989 and then again to 2004. It has been a source of immense personal satisfaction for me that the books have stood the test of time well, and have also been referred to constantly as 'a definitive history of the community'. The illustrated edition which showcases the achievements and brings alive the history of the community will appeal to a much wider audience.

I would like to thank all those who have supported and contributed to this effort.
