This is an introductory text to the Sikh religion. It covers the early Sant tradition and the 10 Sikh Gurus starting from Guru Nanak to Guru Gobind Singh. Covers the evolution of the Sikhs until the present day, touching upon the evolution of the Sikh community and its emergence as a world religion. Professor Andrea Diem, PhD, has been studying Sikhism for over three decades and is current with the latest scholarship on the religion.
Overall I still found it very informative, to how Sikhism became what it is today, but the book was more oriented towards the history of Sikhism than I had expected. I was originally looking to find what the beliefs and practices of Sikhism were, which this partially achieved.
