The Jewish philosopher Martin Buber spoke directly to the most profound human concerns in all his works, including his discussion of Hasidism, a mystical-religious movement founded in Eastern Europe by Israel Ben Eliezer, called the Baal-Shem (the Master of Gods Name). Here Buber offers a sensitive and intuitive accont of Hasidism, followed by twenty stories about the life of the Baal-Shem. This is the earliest of Buber's seven volumes on Hasidism. This book is a paperback, has 223 pages, and is published by Princeton.
