In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

BOOK REVIEWS 215 Baile's book is very good to have. At a time when Scholem's scholarship is throwing light on so many Jewish and Christian currents of the last four hundred years, it is valuable to understand Scholem's contribution and to get a glimpse of the intellectual milieu from which he has emerged. Unfortunately Baile never questions any of Scholem's theses. Nonetheless the book is a fine introduction to the intellectual world of the man who has made the study of Jewish mysticism and important aspect of modern thought. RICHARD H.
