by Nirmal S. Mann, M.D., Ph.D.

This fascinating biography gives us a detailed glimpse of the social, economic, and political conditions in early-twentieth-century California. It chronicles the prejudice and discrimination encountered by minority groups and the devastating effects of the Alien Land Law. Panjabi farmers succeeded in the face of legal, social, and cultural barriers placed in their path.

To put the life of Pakher Singh Gill in perspective, Nirmal S. Mann has summarized Gillís Sikh and Scythian ancestral history, making this book useful to students of history and sociology.
