With roots in the Punjab region, Sikhism is based on the teachings of the ten Gurus who encouraged devotion to God and service to people of all faiths while developing traditions which helped the faith survive persecution. Today Sikhs live and worship worldwide.

Review:

"Interest in world religions has been heightened in light of recent tragic events. Each volume covers the origins of the faith, the teachings of its major prophet, the development of that religion in its home country, its spread, and today's practice of that faith. Forms of worship, holy places, sacred texts, the relationship of art and religion, and common themes among religions are some of the topics in these up-to-date texts. The volume on Islam discusses events of September 11, how Islam and terrorism became synonymous on that date and how that association may be clarified. The series gives a history of each religion and the way that religion shaped the culture from which it came...These are excellent sources for social studies and history classes that compare culture and religion. Recommended."
-- Book Report (September 2002) (Book Report 20020901)

"Students wanting to know more about Islam, the religion so much in the news, will find a solid introduction in this entry in the Religions of the World series. Notes, a glossary, a further reading list, and bibliography are appended."
-- Booklist (August 2002) (Booklist 20020801)

"Notable is the fluid working into the main text of numerous quotations...The notes, index, and list for further reading are extensive, and the black-and-white photographs complement the text."
-- School Library Journal (July 2002) (School Library Journal 20020701)

"(It) has more narrative and explication, giving it more heft and greater informational value. (The) book is much more complete and thoughtful than many of the comparable titles currently available to students."
-- School Library Journal (July 2002) (School Library Journal 20020701)

From School Library Journal:

Grade 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
