FOREWORD:

Maharaja Ranjit Singh as the only sovereign ruler of the Punjab region enjoys a unique place in history. He united diverse elements to mould them into a powerful state and created the strongest indigenous army in Asia. His catholicity and generosity encompassed all sections of the Punjabi society. Their participation in government and administration was a mark of his statesmanship. He was truly 'the Maharaja' for all peoples of the Punjab.

The best way a University can pay homage to this great son of the land is to encourage research on hi. Guru Nanak Dev University has brought out a number of publications related to Maharaja Ranjit Singh and his times. This title volume has the unique distinction of being a book useful alike to the young reader and the researcher. It combines narrative with analysis in a manner that enables the reader to grasp the diversity of the Punjabi society and the complexities of historical processes. Remaining close to empirical evidence, Professor J. S. Grewal takes into account the latest research on the subject. I thank him warmly for writing this book for Guru Nanak Dev University.
