Historical Dictionary of SIKHISM
Description
About the Author:

W. H. McLeod is a New Zealander and is Emeritus Professor at the University of Otago in Dunedin. He took an MA from the University of Otago and PhD from the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. For nine years McLeod taught in the Punjab and developed a life-long interest in the Sikhs. He returned to teach History in the University of Otago in 1971, and since then has paid frequent visits to the Punjab. All of his books and most of his published articles concern Sikh history, religion, and sociology. W. H. McLeod is the author of Guru Nanak and the Sikh Religion (1968), The Evolution of the Sikh Community (1976), Early Sikh Tradition (1980), Who is a Sikh? (1989), Exploring Sikhism (2000), and Sikhs of the Khalsa (forthcoming).

About the Book:

A comprehensive dictionary of terms, concepts, events, and personalities in the study of the Sikh religion and history, the Historical Dictionary of Sikhism has been compiled by one of the most renowned authorities in Sikh Studies. It includes:

More than 1000 entries on the Sikh religion, history, and society explained in an accessible way. The entries include specific terms such as bana, bhog, and bunga, as well as general concepts as they occur within Sikh belief, such as monogamy, patriarchy, and rites of passage.

Thoughtful cross-referencing within entries to facilitate use of the Dictionary by lay readers.

An extensive updated bibliography of extant works in the English language on the religion and history of the Sikhs.

This is a necessary source-book for students, scholars, and general readers in Sikh Studies. Practising Sikhs will find the Dictionary immensely useful. For those with little knowledge of Sikhism, it will be an invaluable companion to any work on the Sikh religion.

'Hew McLeod is the leading scholar of Sikhism in the western world and this dictionary provides an authoritative reference work for those interested in the history and development ot this important religious movement and the Sikh Community.'

Peter Reeves, Asian Studies Revies

'Hew McLeod is to be commended for the splendid resource that he has placed in the hands of those seeking to understand the history and religion of the Sikhs.'

William W. Emilsen, Journal of Religious History

Testimonials

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
BWM, NZ

Love the website and the breadth of selection. Thanks for assembling such a great collection of art and sculpture.
Richard, USA
Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
Walter
Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.
Gregory, USA
Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
Shankar, UK
The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
