Through an analysis of the Sikh scriptures, eighteenth and nineteenth century Sikh literature, as well as the voluminous tracts and newspapers produced under the auspices of the late nineteenth-century 'reform' movement, the Singh Sabha, this book examines how and why Sikhs began to represent their history as a history of persecutions and martyrdoms.
