A Simple History of the Punjab (From 1799 A.D. to 1920 A.D.)

Description The contents of the book make a sort of text-cum-guide book to postgraduate students of history covering a period of Punjab history between 1799 and 1920. The first part gives detailed, factual information about Maharaja Ranjit Singh's conquest of Punjab and his political, military, social, civil, and secular administration of Punjab. It also includes the period of his immediate successors. The second part deals with the British annexation of Punjab in the post Maharaja Period and the British administration of Punjab. The book is remarkable for its detailed information, about Maharaja Ranjit Singh's military and administrative qualities, the motives, and intrigues of his successors and the shrewd manipulative designs of the British. It is a broad survey of the of a little more than one century period of Punjab's turbulent history. Instead of providing insights and projecting any opinions, the authors have provided a rich haul of raw material to the scholars to sift the grain from the chaff themselves. It is a valuable guide and resource book for students of history. [edit]
