Sikhs and Sikhism
Sikhs and Sikhism
Description
About the Book :

This volume is an omnibus edition of four classic studies on the history and evolution of Sikhs and Sikhism, by one of the world's leading scholars in this field.

Guru Nanak and the Sikh Religion examines the life and teachings of Guru Nanak, offering an analytical view of the first Guru of the Sikhs, which is essential for an understanding of later Sikh history and contemporary Sikh society.

In Early Sikh Tradition McLeod traces the origins of the janam-sakhi style, describes the anecdotal and discourse forms used by narrators, and reconstructs a pattern whereby janam-sakhi traditions were assembled and transmitted.

The Evolution of the Sikh Community questions the traditional, and rather simplified, view of the Sikh community and its history by probing further into the past to the roots of Nanak's teachings.

The last work, Who is a Sikh? offers lucid accounts of key events and phases that led to the development of Sikh identity into its current form. This book seeks to provide an understanding of the Sikh individual, historical community, and religion.

Excerpts From Review:

'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 books 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

'...in his analysis and comparison of his sources Dr McLeod's touch is so sure, his critical faculty so acute, his zest in unraveling the truth so potent, and the sheer scholarly honesty of the enterprise so palpable that...the very process of exact scholarship which can be so tedious becomes fascinating and absorbing.' - Times Literary Supplement

'...careful scholarship and thoughtful analytical temper, revealing important historical trajectories along which the Sikh tradition has changed over the centuries...widely read...a scholar who is both sympathetic to his material and writes of it with clarity and authority.' - The Indian Economic and Social History Review

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.

Fotis, Greece

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
