History and Ideology: The khalsa Over 300 Years,
edited by Professors J.S.Grewal & Indu Banga, commemorates the tercentenary
of the Khalsa by focusing on the history of the Sikh Panth, setting it in the context
of the general history of India . The essays included in this volume comprise a
selection from presentations that have been made at annual sessions of the
Indian History Congress since its foundation in 1935, and cover the major phases
of Sikh history from the sixteenth to the twentieth century. They foreground the

delineating the rich strands that the cultural, social and political history of the Sikhs
has contributed to tapestry of the composite nation that is India.
