Description - Hasidic People by Jerome R. Mintz

This text, winner of the 1993 National Jewish Book Award in Folklore and Anthropology, provides a social history of the New York community based on extensive interviews, observation, newspaper files and court records. It combines historical study with tenacious investigation to provide an account of social and religious dynamics. "Hasidic People" takes the reader from the various neighbourhood settlements through years of growth to current incidents and conflicts. Complemented by personal insights, Mintz invites us into this old world within the new, a way of life at once foreign and yet intrinsic to the American Experience.
