The Punjab Under the Lawrence (1846-1858)

Description This volume (to use the words of G. L. Chopra from the preface) deals with the wise and sympathetic handling of the Sikh Community by the Lawrence Brother's benevolent and sagacious administrators in the Indo British annals". The two Lawrence were the main administrative heads of Punjab soon after its annexation with the British empire for a period from (1846 to 1858). These two administrators not only assuaged the bruised and hurt feelings of the Sikhs after their tragic loss of power, but also carried on several welfare measures in the state. It was their good work done for the Sikhs and the Punjab that the British could control the Indian Mutiny of 1857 with the support of the Sikhs. Moreover, the book presents a critical, objective analysis of the loss of Sikh sovereign state both due to the shrewd diplomacy of the British as well as the dismal internal strife with in the Sikh ranks after the death of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. The book, being based on the authentic archival, state records and personal interviews with the descendants of Maharaja and Contemporary leading figures, is a reliable resource book for researchers of Punjab and Sikh history.[edit]
