Sikh Formations Book review: Sri Dasam Granth: Questions and Answers

Sri Dasam Granth Sahib: questions and answers
Gurinder Singh Mann & Kamalroop Singh, Archimedes Press, 2011.£8.99, ISBN 978-0-9568435-0-0

In Sri Dasam Granth Sahib: questions and answers, the authors Gurinder Singh Mann and Kamalroop Singh  seek to redress recent debates about not only the importance and relevancy of the Sri Dasam Granth Sahib  (SDGS) for the Sikh tradition, but they also entertain questions regarding its authenticity, authorship, as well  as the historical and contemporary position of this text for Sikh thought. The perspective of the book is  scholarly and grass roots, as both authors have spent time as active members of the Sikh community as well  as having pursued scholarly research of the SDGS at the postgraduate level.
