WHO IS SIKH?: THE PROBLEM OF SIKH IDENTITY
WHO IS SIKH?: THE PROBLEM OF SIKH IDENTITY
Description

About the Book:

In this insightful study, internationally renowned scholar of Sikh studies W. H. Mcleod addresses the question: what is Sikhism and who is a Sikh? His answers, combining rigorous scholarship with the astute observations of an 'outsider', have generated heated discussions and considerable controversy, especially among today's followers of the faith.

McLeod surveys the 500-year history of the Sikh people, tracing the origins of the multi-faceted Sikh identity as it exists today back to the first followers of Guru Nanak. From this small cluster of devotees, the community had grown and developed to include the many strands that now claim the title of Sikh, from the Sikhs of the Khalsa to the so-called Sahaj-dhari Sikhs. As he contemplates the diversity that is characteristic of the modern community, McLeod considers how various circumstances influenced the criteria by which people could be identified as Sikhs. In his conclusion, McLeod attempts a general definition of the nature of Sikhism and Sikh identity, drawing on a lifetime of research and experience of the Sikh community and culture.

This new paperback edition of a pivotal work will interest students and scholars of Sikh studies and Indian religions, history and sociology, as well as general readers interested in the Sikh religion.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
