Sunset of the Sikh Empire is the last book of Sita Ram Kohli, edited by Khushwant Singh and published posthumously in 1967. The book provides a detailed history of the ten years between the death of Maharaja Ranjit Singh and the annexation of the Sikh Empire by the British. The author has utilised a huge mass of material pertaining to Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s times—about three lakh folios covering the period of the Lahore Darbar from 1811 to 1849, kept in the tomb of Anarkali at Lahore—and British archival material from the National Archives, New Delhi. Day-to-day events are explained in detail, with dates being cross-referenced from various sources. This classic reissue retains the sanctity of the 1967 edition while giving it a completely new look. This authoritative work is a primary sourcebook that will appeal to students and scholars of history and colonial studies. Printed pages: 222.
