Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This expanded and updated second edition of the dictionary is an excellent place to learn more about Sikhism. It provides a chronology of events, a brief introduction that gives a general overview of the religion, and a dictionary with several hundred entries, which present the gurus and other leaders, trace the rather complex history, expound some of the precepts and concepts, describe many of the rites and rituals, and explain the meaning of numerous related expressions. All this, along with a copious bibliography, provides readers with an informative and accessible guide toward understanding Sikhism.

Book News Annotation:

They were once mysterious denizens of the Punjab, famous for their fighting prowess and their deep secrecy. Now, after their dispersion into India, the UK and the US, Sikhs have transcended some of the mystery but have remained the Other in their diaspora. McLeod, a leading scholar of the Sikh religion and social system, begins with maps, a chronology and an introduction to the contexts of Sikhism, and then provides a comprehensive dictionary of several hundred entries describing the essence of Sikh life, belief and thought, tracing the long history of the Sikhs, their political and religious leaders, and the people inside and outside their faith they consider important. McLeod has updated this edition to include recent developments in the Punjab and elsewhere.
