"This autobiography comprises two parts, both concerned with the author’s career in Sikh studies. Part I is autobiographical: it lays emphasis on those features of McLeod’s career which have had an important influence on his relationship with the Sikhs and with the manner in which he has sought to give expression to them in his written works.
Two features have been particularly significant. One is his religious development which, thirty-five years ago, led him to unbelief.
The other is his growth in understanding of the nature and value of historical studies(less)

Dalit?s own history, therefore, has to capture the minds of sociologists and anthro-pologists today. The volume will be of immense interest to master level students as well as, researchers on the topic(less)
