The Evolution of the Sikh Community: FIVE ESSAYS
The Evolution of the Sikh Community: FIVE ESSAYS
Description
About the Author:

W. H. McLeod is an internationally renowned scholar of Sikh studies. He is Emeritus Professor at the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand.

About the Book:

Beginning in the early sixteenth century as an intensely interior system of devotion, Sikhism emerged into prominence later in the eighteenth century as a clearly defined belief laying stress on martial prowess and external symbols. Thus traditionally, Sikh history has always been regarded as a paradox.

McLeod seeks a more intricate interpretation, a more radical concept of development, taking into account a wider range of historical and sociological phenomena. In this series of five essays he examines the history and sacred literature of the Sikhs, probing into the roots of Nanak's teachings and beyond. He demonstrates that the evolution of the community has in fact been a logical and consistent process.

Authoritative yet lucidly written, this volume will make interesting reading for scholars and students of religion, culture, Sikh studies, sociology, and history, as well as general readers and members of the Sikh community interesting in the living faith.

I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!
Noemi
I would like to thank Exotic India for the very superior packaging and shipment of my order. Much appreciated! The order arrived very quickly. Many thanks!! I will always check Exotic India first for books in the future.

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
