About this book
The International Bibliography of Sikh Studies brings together all books, composite works, journal articles, conference proceedings, theses, dissertations, project reports, and electronic resources produced in the field of Sikh Studies until June 2004, making it the most complete and up-to-date reference work in the field today.
One of the youngest religions of the world, Sikhism has progressively attracted attention on a global scale in recent decades. An increasing number of scholars is exploring the culture, history, politics, and religion of the Sikhs. The growing interest in Sikh Studies has resulted in an avalanche of literature, which is now for the first time brought together in the International Bibliography of Sikh Studies.
This monumental work lists over 10,000 English-language publications under almost 30 subheadings, each representing a subfield in Sikh Studies. The Bibliography contains sections on a wide variety of subjects, such as Sikh gurus, Sikh philosophy, Sikh politics and Sikh religion. Furthermore, the encyclopedia presents an annotated survey of all major scholarly work on Sikhism, and a selective listing of electronic and web-based resources in the field. Author and subject indices are appended for the reader’s convenience.

From the reviews:
"The Sikh faith, culture and identity have been – and remain – an active focus of discussion and scholarship. This bibliography confirms and celebrates this in comprehensive detail. … we get an excellent historiographic picture of the history and culture and identity of the Sikhs … . The print version … comes out well in terms of detailed information, covering canonical and ephemeral sources, the work of journalists and academic theses, and much else." (Stuart Hannabuss, Reference Reviews, Vol. 20 (3), 2006)
