[Martin Buber] -- The Jewish philosopher Martin Buber spoke directly to the most profound human concerns in all his works, including his discussions of Hasidism, a mystical-religious movement founded in Eastern Europe.   In Franz Kafka wrote to Max Brod that Buber’s most recent books were “revolting, repulsive” and that his “Tales of Rabbi Nachman” and “The Legend .

The tales in this book, translated from the German (though this fact is not mentioned), cover the early masters, from the Baal Shem to the “Seer” of Lublin; apparently this is the first volume of a two-volume work.
