The work offers an enquiry and insight into the content and course of struggle of the Sikh people for identity, assertion and sovereignty in the eighteenth century.

The author has identified the impulses leavening the struggle, besides detailing the repressive measures adopted first by the Mughal rulers and then by Afghans. He also undertook an exploration of the remarkable tractability of the Sikh institution, the configuration of Sikh mind, its responsiveness and creativeness to evolve new strategies and new institutions such as Misaldari system, Dal Khalsa and Sarbat Khalsa et al.

The book also evaluates the impact of the struggle on Sikhism: in what respects it proved beneficial for Sikhism and in what respects it had adverse effects on it.
