Marcin Wodziński is professor of Jewish studies at the University of Wrocław in Poland. His recent books include Hasidism: A New History (Princeton) and Hasidism: Key Questions (Oxford).

Historical Atlas of Hasidism is the very first cartographic reference book on one of the modern era's most vibrant and important mystical movements. Featuring seventy-four large-format maps and a wealth of illustrations, charts, and tables, this one-of-a-kind atlas charts Hasidism's emergence and expansion; its dynasties, courts, and prayer houses; its spread to the New World; the crisis of the two world wars and the Holocaust; and Hasidism's remarkable postwar rebirth.
