From The Backcover Of 'Sikh Heritage - Ethos & Relics' By Bhayee Sikandar Singh and Roopinder Singh

A unique and very important document ... detailed, beautifully illustrated, systematic, and intellectually rigorous-yet, not at all like a typical museum catalogue of a public or private collection.

PAUL MICHAEL TAYLOR

Director, Asian Cultural History Program (and), Curator of Asian, European, and Middle Eastern Ethnology, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC, USA

Beautiful pictures of new and familiar objects are woven into a powerful narrative of the Sikh material heritage. Bhayee Sikandar Singh and Roopinder Singh make a formidable team, and the book they have created should be of great interest to both scholars and general readers.

GURINDER SINGH MANN

Kundan Kaur Kapany Chair in Sikh Studies, Department of Religious Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA, USA

Whether in families, nations or religions, heritage is the glue that defines and binds a people. Historical narratives stem ftom oral history and relics. The authors of this tome and their families are richly endowed with Sikh historical relics from the beginnings of Sikhism. This book is both an excellent resource for historians and an eye-opening journey for all who have admired the Founder-Gurus of Sikhi.

I.J. SINGH

Professor Emeritus, New York University, NY, USA

... a vital contribution to the Sikh world. Its visual representation and thoughtful! contextualisation of relics, sites, and paintings animate memories of a glorious past. The handwriting of Gurus, their outfits, their weapons, startle the imagination; Guru Gobind Singh's wooden comb holding his hair literally jolts the beholder. .. A work of profound historical rind spiritual significance.

NIKKY G. KAUR SINGH

Chair and Crawford Family Professor, Department of Religious Studies, Colby College, Waterville, ME, USA

An excellent account of the history of distinguished Sikh families, interwoven with the evolution and development of Sikhism.

MANJIT SINGH

Director, Chaplaincy Service, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

... a landmark publication. It brings to the public unprecedented access to historical objects related to the history of the Sikh Gurus and the formation of the Sikh community. .. Through stunning photography, and animated by a lively narration of their historical significance, these objects come alive for readers ...

The publication of this book will change how we think about, and visualise, the Sikh past.
