Sikh Politics

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know any good books that explain, in detail, Sikh politics?

Does anyone here have knowledge on Sikh politics, roles of the King, ministers, etc. in the kingdom, qualities of a good king, etc? 

Has there been any writing on the subject?

Yes because they relate Guru and Singh history. But in terms of government structures, social conditions of the people under sikh rule etc they provide very Little. The Persian writings produced at the courts of the Sikh Kings of Lahore, Kapurthala and Patiala however provide information on this. But due to them being written in difficult courtly Persian, very few Sikhs have studied these.
