Reviews

"Mendes-Flohr. . . . traces the historical path that led Buber from Europe to Israel, and, throughout his engrossing narrative, tracks Buber's intellectual journey, one that made him both a revered figure and a controversial one."-Benjamin Balint, Wall Street Journal
"A scrupulously researched, perceptive biography of Buber that evinces an authoritative command of all the contexts through which Buber moved."-Robert Alter, New York Times Book Review
"Mendes-Flohr's book is certainly comprehensive"-David Ruben, The Jewish Chronicle

"Martin Buber was a great and hugely complicated man: philosopher, activist, he engaged throughout his career in a committed search for a modern Judaism that would remain in touch with the beauty, complexity, and tragedy of everyday life. Paul Mendes-Flohr's superb biography captures the depth and many-sidedness of Buber's life and work. It is a great gift for all who already care about Buber, and for many who have yet to make his acquaintance."-Martha C. Nussbaum, The University of Chicago
"This exquisite biography presents the best account to date of the life and work of one of the most distinguished modern Jewish thinkers and provides a panoramic view of the rich intellectual and cultural life of German Jewry."-Amir Eshel, Stanford University
"In Martin Buber, Paul Mendes-Flohr brilliantly combines impeccable scholarship with the ability to allow the real living person to come through on the page."-Arthur Green, author of Radical Judaism
