Editorial Reviews

VOYA
Using a basic chronological scheme for organization, this resource contains themed chapters that provide excellent information for the general reader wishing to learn about the basic history, development, and beliefs of the faith. The book discusses Sikh's roots in Hindi/Indian faith and culture, as well as the Islamic influences it received. Of special note is the section on key terms, concepts, and beliefs of Sikhism, which are compared and contrasted to Hinduism and Islam. In addition, biographical information and the affect that the ten founding gurus had over Sikh faith are provided. Historical and political relations with Indian, Arab, and Western people are given to show how Sikhism has dealt with strife and change, as well as how they are dealing with the world today, especially those living in the Western world. This series volume is full of photos and maps to help illustrate the complexities and unique characteristics of Sikhism. Its vocabulary is accessible for all readers, grades six and up and should appeal to adult readers who desire a quick, easy read. If other series books are of the same quality and organization, the whole series is an essential purchase for public and school libraries, especially since cultural, theological, historical, political, and diversity assignments and issues are commonplace in today's world. (Religions of the World).

Photos. Maps. Biblio. Source Notes. Further Reading., PLB . Ages 12 to 18.

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-As there are few detailed books on Sikhism for this audience, this title goes a long way in helping to fill the gap. The information is precise, statistics are accurate, and the organization is excellent. A full history of the religion is provided, as is an overview of its beliefs and practices. The writing is clear and flows well, making this an excellent source for research or for those with genuine interest. Unfortunately, the dull black-and-white photos, reproductions, and maps that appear throughout lack the liveliness of the text.-Amanda Conover Le, St. Johns County Public Library System, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
