The volume contains two books: The Early Masters and The Later Masters and a new foreword by Chaim Potok. The page numbers start over with Book Two. Each book has an introduction, notes, glossary, and index. The first has a selected bibliography and the second a genealogy of the Hasidic masters and an alphabetical index to the genealogy.

Book Two includes what seems like an original version of I.L. Peretz's "Even Higher," called "Lamentations at Midnight" (p. 87) about Rabbi Moshe Leib of Sasov. It is interesting to compare the two stories.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805209956, Paperback)

This new paperback edition brings together volumes one and two of Buber's classic work Takes of the Hasidim, with a new foreword by Chaim Potok. Martin Buber devoted forty years of his life to collecting and retelling the legends of Hasidim. "Nowhere in the last centuries," wrote Buber in Hasidim and Modern Man, "has the soul-force of Judaism so manifested itself as in Hasidim... Without an iota being altered in the law, in the ritual, in the traditional life-norms, the long-accustomed arose in a fresh light and meaning."

These marvelous tales—terse, vigorous, often cryptic—are the true texts of Hasidim. The hasidic masters, of whom these tales are told, are full-bodied personalities, yet their lives seem almost symbolic. Through them is expressed the intensity and holy joy whereby God becomes visible in everything.
