Closely examining how the Sikh separatist movement for Khalistan developed in the Punjab and why it turned violent, this book explores how internal power blocs within Sikhism shaped an exclusionary Sikh identity over the past 300 years. As well, the political economy perspective of the book helps explain how the interests of the Sikh capitalist farmers have shaped post-independence Sikh politics.
