The A to Z of Sikhism by W. H McLeod( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is more to Sikhism than the distinctive dress of its adherents: the emergence of Guru Nanak, the founder, and his long line of successors; the precepts, many related to liberation through the divine name or nam; a particularly turbulent history in which the Sikhs have fought to affirm their beliefs and resist external domination; and, more recently, the dispersion of Sikhs from the Punjab throughout the rest of India and on to Europe and the Americas. With this emigration, Sikhism has become considerably less exotic but hardly better known to outsiders. The A to Z of Sikhism provides a brief introduction, a chronology, and a dictionary containing several hundred entries that present the Gurus and other leaders, trace Sikhism's complex history, expound some of its precepts and concepts, describe many of its rites and rituals, and explain the meaning of numerous Sikh expressions."--Page 4 of cover
