    Customer comments on this Sikhism Book

    More than just a Dictionary
    The Historical Dictionary of Sikhism provides information on the Sikh religion, its history, culture and its principles and practices. As the name suggests, the book is organized by entries in alphabetic order with an explanation for each key entry. It has an extensive introduction and a chronology of Sikh history from the birth of the founder, Guru Nanak in 1469 to the turmoil in the Punjab until 1992. The Dictionary is complemented by an extensive Bibliography of over 100 pages.
    I find the book to be informative, well organized and an excellent starting point for further readings into Sikh religion and history. As a dictionary ought to be, it is also a valuable reference work. I recommend it highly.
    The author, W. H. McLeod, is a New Zealander and has written extensively on Sikh history, religion and sociology. Some of the other books he has written include Guru Nanak and the Sikh Religion, The Evolution of the Sikh Community, Early Sikh Tradition and Who is a Sikh?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
