   schema:reviewBody ""Born in Warsaw, reared in a Hasidic community, and reaching maturity in secular Jewish Vilna and cosmopolitan Berlin, Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-1972) escaped Nazism and immigrated to the United States in 1940. This book tells the comprehensive story of his life and work in America, describing his politics and personality, and how he came to influence not only Jewish debate but also wider religious and cultural controversies in the postwar decades." "A sequel to his biography of Heschel's early years, Edward Kaplan's new volume draws on previously unseen archives, FBI files, interviews with people who knew Heschel, and analyses of his extensive writings. Kaplan explores Heschel's shy and private side, his spiritual radicalism, and his vehement defense of the Hebrew prophets' ideal of absolute integrity and truth in ethical and political life."--Jacket." ;
