Revue de presse

"This book on Sikhism is a little gem. Nesbitt writes beautifully and succinctly... There will be no excuse for not knowing something about Sikhism in the future." (Carrie Mercer, Shap World Religions in Education)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Sikh religion has a following of over 20 million people worldwide and is one of the largest religions in the world. However, events such as the verbal and physical attacks on Sikhs just after September 11 indicated that Sikhs were being mistaken for Muslims, and suggests that the raising of sufficient and appropriate awareness about Sikhism still needs to be addressed. This book will introduce newcomers to the meaning of Sikhism, and its practices, rituals, and festivals. The key threads in the fascinating history of the religion will be highlighted, from the Gurus and the development of the Sikh look, to martyrdom and militarization in the 17th and 18th Centuries and the diaspora. Eleanor Nesbitt brings the subject completely up to date with an examination of gender and caste, referring to contemporary film, such as Bend It Like Beckham, and media reports. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

My interest in Religion stems primarily from the desire to learn about faith and beliefs, and their metaphysical underpinnings. So when I pick up a book in order to learn about a religion that is different from my own, I have an expectation that the major part of that book will deal with the subject matter of those beliefs. Regrettably, that is not the case with this very short introduction. The Sikh beliefs are dealt with briefly and in a very superficial way. Most of the book deals with Sikhism as a social and ethnic category. Of course, those considerations should not be neglected either, but this was not why I decided to pick up and read this book. If, on the other hand, you are interested in those "demographic" aspects of Sikhism, this very short introduction will provide you with plenty of information. This, however, makes for a very boring read.

very useful 26 juin 2014

Despite being, as the title says, very short, this introduction to Sikhism gives vital historical, religious, and critical context for the emerging world faith. Nesbitt covers both Punjabi and diaspora concerns with an eye for the turbulent role of Sikh nationalism and differentiation from Hindus and Muslims have put pressures on Sikhism. Nesbitt also is quite good at some of the contradictory interactions that the ethnics of the Panth demand on Sikhs class with both Punjabi and diaspora cultural pressures have put on Sikh practice. Nesbitt also draws out the increasing military image of Sikhism which was largely absent in the early Gurus but emerges with the later gurus war with the Mughals as well as the ambivalent role in the British Raj. Sikhism is much too misunderstood and understudied and this slight book is a start in correcting that.

An interesting read about a subject of which I had no previous knowledge. "Very Short Introductions" do it again with this easy to read book!
a helpful overview 21 août 2014

Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
A short and concise overview. Good perspectives about the Sikhs' desire for a homeland and their relationship to Hinduism. Would have been helpful to have more of the philosophical assumptions of Sikhism, and fewer non-English (Indian) terms. Could have included more about Sikh theology in comparison to other major world religions.
