505 $aPart one. Evolution of the Sikh tradition. Guru Nanak and his early successors -- Martyrdom and militancy : rise of the Khalsa -- Modernity and colonialism -- Part two. Teachings and practices. Way of life -- Sikh philosophy -- Part three. Pluralism and its challenges. Sikh ethics -- Sikhs and the public sphere.
520    $aSikhism's short but relatively eventful history provides a fascinating insight into the working of misunderstood and seemingly contradictory themes such as politics and religion, violence and mysticism, culture and spirituality, orality and textuality, public sphere versus private sphere, tradition and modernity. This book presents students with a careful analysis of these complex themes as they have manifested themselves in the historical evolution of the Sikh traditions and the encounter of Sikhs with modernity and the West, in the philosophical teachings of its founders and their interpretation by Sikh exegetes, and in Sikh ethical and intellectual responses to contemporary issues in an increasingly secular and pluralistic world. [This book] serves as an ideal guide to Sikhism, and also for students of Asian studies, Sociology of Religion and World Religions. -- Back cover.
