Maharaja Ranjit Singh: Polity, Economy and Society
Maharaja Ranjit Singh: Polity, Economy and Society
Description
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.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
