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

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
