The Punjab as a Sovereign State
Gulshan Lall Chopra
Dr. Chopra’s work is a thesis produced by him for the Ph.D. Degree of the London University. It is an exhaustive study of the reign of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, his court, his army and his policy. The period must always be one of great interest to the student of Indian History. The rapidity with which the Sikh monarchy was built up and the equal rapidity with which it disintegrated on the death of the Maharaja are strangely dramatic.
