The Punjab Under the Lawrences

Description This volume based on the scrutiny of the old manuscripts, earlier published works, both European and Indian as well as contemporary periodicals, gives an objective view of the two Lawrence brothers as British heads of state in Punjab from 1846-1858. The account is free from both exaggerated praise of British writers and biased approach of Indian Nationalist writers. The author is of the view that policies and attitude of Lawrence towards the people of Punjab were benevolent and socially reformist. It wiped away much of the bitterness created by the preceding Anglo-Sikh wars and the British annexation of Punjab. It turned the rebellious Sikh troops and people of Punjab into strongest supporters of the British Empire during the great Indian Mutiny of 1857. The writer's view, though fairly objective, is not shared by some Indian historians. Nevertheless, it is a scholarly work, well-documented and chronological written in a fine expression.[edit]
