Starting with the arrival of Gurū Nānak Sāhib, the book revisits the revolutionary rise of the Sikh Panth covering over five hundred and fifty years of history. Ranveer Singh presents how the Gurū Sāhibān proactively created new paradigms of existence that offered a liberating alternative to the clutches of totalitarian and oppressive power structures built and tied to haumai. While Sikh consciousness was at the nucleus of this transformation, the author presents how the doctrine of Sikh sovereignty was integral to this process, allowing the praxis of Gurmat to exist independently through the standing of Gurū’s Darbār, and the manifestations of Sikh Rāj that followed.


Early praise

“Ranveer Singh has put in his best intellectual effort to present a narrative on Sikh sovereignty and has thus, made a substantial contribution to Punjab and Sikh studies that deserves serious attention, engagement and reflection.” - Pritam Singh, Emeritus Professor of Economy, Oxford Brookes


As calls to 'decolonize' knowledge reverberate across the academy, Ranveer Singh engages in this very praxis. He asks us to consider the possibility of approaching Sikh sovereignty without the conceptual baggage that continues to weigh down mightily. - Rajbir Singh Judge, Assistant Professor, California State University


This book belongs to every Sikh library and will have greatest appeal to the younger generation growing up in the Sikh diaspora.” - Pashaura Singh, Distinguished Professor and Dr. J.S. Saini Chair in Sikh Studies, University of California, Riverside


“Ranveer Singh has done a great job in eloquently putting together the simmering issue of Sikh sovereignty which needs to be resolved with the mandate of Sikh people in the context of our historical sovereign past. This magnificent book should be in every university classroom in social sciences.” - Hon. Justice Dr. Anup Singh Choudry, High Court Judge ( retd), (Lond) LL.B (Cantab)LL.M .DipNotar(Cantab ) PH.D(KIU), ACQI
