"This book has been a classic in its field since it was first issued in 1950, and it still stands as uniquely authoritative and intriguingly instructive.... [It is] a monument of revelation and insight bridging anthropology, religion, sociology, and history."-Publishers Weekly "[Scholem's] work on Jewish mysticism, messianism, and sectarianism, spanning now half a century, constitutes ... one of the major achievements of the historical imagination in our time. I would contend that it is of vital interest not only to anyone concerned with the history of religion but to anyone struggling to understand the underlying problematics of the human predicament."-Robert Alter, Commentary "No great textual scholar, no master of philology and historical criticism commands a technique at once more scrupulously attentive to its object and more instinctive with the writer's voice [than Scholem]. That voice reaches out and grabs the layman."-George Steiner, New Yorker
