This text provides an overview of the Sikh religion. Using a descriptive approach, Gurinder Singh Mann discusses one of the least known of the world's monotheistic religions. Synthesizing research in the area of Sikh studies, this text presents an overview of Sikh history and religiosity by firmly placing it against the backdrop of other major religious traditions of the world. Written in an informative style, and assuming no prior knowledge on the part of the reader, this text gives a basic introduction to the faith, its history, beliefs, practices, modern developments and impacts on the world today.
