Preface

It was under the auspices of the Directorate of Planning and Development that a seminar on 'Maharaja Ranjit Singh : Politics, Society and Economy' was organised in the Punjabi University in August 1981 as a part of the 200th birth anniversary celebrations of the Maharaja. The present volume contains the papers presented in the seminar; its title also emanates scrupulously from the subject of the seminar.

It had been our desire and endeavour from the very beginning to cover hitherto unexplored aspects of the early nineteenth century history of the Punjab. With that object in view, various themes of the seminar were carefully selected and circulated among the scholars well in advance. The response was highly encouraging in terms of both the quantity of the papers and the variety of their themes.

A glance at the papers published in this volume will reveal a wide variety of themes they represent-Ranjit Singh's conquests and defence system, his relations with the neighbouring states, nature of the Maharaja's state, local administration, numismatics, agricultural system and land-market, life and manners of the common people, urbanisation, education, art and literature, trade and commerce, source-materials and historiography, etc. etc. Evidently, the socio-cultural and economic aspects of Ranjit Singh's time have been as adequately represented as the political aspects. We are beholden to all the scholars whose valuable papers appear in this volume. The limitation of space compelled us to curtail or condense some lengthy articles.

Grateful acknowledgements are due to Dr S.S. Johl, Vice-Chancellor, Punjabi University, for his keen interest in, and kindly foreword to, this publication; to Dr Bhagat Singh, former Vice-Chancellor of the University, for his inaugural address; to Prof.
