Religion, civil society and the state form the three dimensions of this semiological study of Sikhism. Uberoi first explains the underlying structure of medievalism in both Hindu and Muslim cultures, and goes on to undertake an examination of the period of collaboration between Sikhism and Gandhism after the revolution of Islam in Iran. The figure of the martyr is seen to be an integral part of Sikhism, Gandhism, and Shia Islam."Original and thought-provoking. ... Uberoi produces many compelling readings of aspects of Sikh religion, such as his brilliant interpretation of the five symbols of Sikh initiation as a reversal of renunciant initiatory rites."--Religious Studies Review
