520    Available for the first time in electronic format, Famous 
       Zionist philosopher Martin Buber introduces the 
       philosophies of Hasidism to a Western audience in his 
       modern masterpiece. This book is a result of forty years 
       of study, and Buber interprets the ideas and motives that 
       underlie the great Jewish religious movement of Hasidism 
       and its creator, Baal-Shem. Buber's interpretation of 
       Hasidic stories and teachings influenced a new generation 
       to turn to Hasidic teachings, and his collection Hasidism 
       continues to affect Jewish scholarship worldwide. With his
       lasting work in both Hasidism and Zionism, Buber imagined 
       a renewal in the Jewish faith, and his philosophies and 
       idealisms enrich the pages of this book, making it a must-
       read for any Jewish or religious scholar. ------Martin 
       Buber (1878-1965) was an Austrian-born Jewish philosopher,
       essayist, translator, and editor most known for his German
       translation of the Bible, his religious existentialism 
       philosophy, and his role in the Zionist movement. Buber 
       grew up in Vienna during the rule of the Austro-Hungarian 
       Empire, which fell after World War I. He was raised by his
       grandparents, who introduced him to Zionism and Hasidism 
       at a young age. Buber had a knack for language and learned
       more than ten different languages during his school years.
       After school, Buber was recruited to lecture on Jewish 
       religious studies at universities, educational centers, 
       and Jewish groups. In 1938, as the Nazi Party gained power,
       Buber left Germany and settled in Jerusalem. He continued 
       to lecture in Jerusalem at Hebrew University. Known for 
       politically utopist ideals including anarchism and 
       socialism, Buber became a leader in the Zionist movement 
       and supported a bi-national solution to the Israel-
       Palestine conflict. In 1951 he received the Goethe award 
       of the University of Hamburg and in 1953 the Peace Prize 
       of the German Book Trade. In 1958, he won the Israel 
       Prize. In 1963, he won the Erasmus Award in Amsterdam. He 
       lived and worked in Jerusalem until his death in 1965.
