This book seeks to answer two closely related questions: How are Indian religions to be conceptualized? What did it mean to be a Sikh in the nineteenth-century?


A profound scholarly work, and a welcome addition to the corpus of modern Sikh Studies. - J S A Ahluwalia, The Guru Gobind Sing Journal of Religious Studies.

Harjot Oberoi has produced an interpretation of a crucially important period of Sikh history, which is not just a good book, it may well turn out to be a turning point in Sikh studies. - T N Madan, The Indian Economic and Social History Review

Brilliantly combines the insights of history with those of anthropology - Surjit Hans, The Tribune

The import of this work reaches well beyond Punjab; it is a contribution to the history of Indian civilization. - Satish Saberwal, Studies in History

With this book Harjot Oberoi has emerged as a leading historian of the Sikhs .. This volume should be read by historians, of course, but also by those who are interested in the understanding of identity in general. - Dipankar Gupta, Seminar
