"...Rajiv Kapur treats one core element of the situation in a meticulous examination of the development of a Sikh identity which separates it from the other religions in the region, particularly Hinduism. India's newest religion, beginning in the fifteenth century, underwent a revival beginning in the late nineteenth century in the context of Hindu, Islamic, and Christian competition. That revivalism continues with militant, extremist and terrorist dimensions..." Wallace, Paul. "Book Review." Third World Quarterly 9.1 (1987): 362.
