Exploring Sikhism: Aspects of Sikh Identity, Culture, and Thought
Exploring Sikhism: Aspects of Sikh Identity, Culture, and Thought
Description
About the Book:

This volume brings together essays published over four decades by an internationally renowned scholar of Sikh Studies whose interest embraces all respects of Sikh history, belief, and practice. The essays, trenchant, insightful, and engagingly written, cover a range of subjects- from the nature of the Sikh Panth (the Sikh community) and the Khalsa Rahit (the code of belief and behaviour all initiated Sikhs must promise to obey) to Guru Nanak and the Sikh diaspora. The volume concludes with a spiritual answer to some of the criticisms that have been levelled against McLeod over the course of his career. This collection will be invaluable for students and scholars of Sikh studies as well as general readers interested in the work of this important scholar.

About the Author:

Hew McLeod is Emeritus Professor at the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand.

Excerpts from Reviews:

'The field of modern Sikh Studies has been single-handedly introduced, crafted, nourished and advanced by Hew McLeod over the last three decades. He has over ten book in Sikh history to his credit and each one of his works has been received with much enthusiasm and global critical acclaim...In his sophistication and erudition in matters of Sikh history, society, and culture he remains unmatched.'

--Professor Harjot Oberoi, University of British Columbia, Canada

'...[I]n his analysis and comparison of his sources Dr McLeod's touch is so sure, his critical faculty so acute, his zest in unravelling the truth so patent, and the sheer scholarly honestly of the enterprise so palpable that...the very process of exact scholarship which can be so tedious becomes fascinating and absorbing.'

--Times Literary Supplement

'...[W]ithout doubt, [Hew McLeod] is one of the best scholars in the field. When it comes to the constitution and development of the civil society, the evolution and the progression of theraihat maryada, his researches are excellent...As an outsider, as an objective historian, he initiated and instigated researches in some of the most sensitive domains, that an insider, a member of the community, probably could not have perceived. He will always be remembered as one of the most outstanding scholars of Sikhism.'

--Indian Institute of Advanced Study Review

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
