About Book

Book Description
"[This book] still remains a pioneer in the field of Punjabi historiography. The book is most authoritative for the period, which he has reconstructed with imagination, sympathy and consummate skill. Cunningham has made a fundamental contribution to historical knowledge." --V.N. Datta, Emeritus Profesor of Modern History, Kurukshetra University. This is a reprint of the 1849 original.
