Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach is considered the most influential 20th Century composer of Jewish music. He is the progenitor of the modern neo-Chasidic renaissance. 

Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach: Life, Mission, and Legacy presents a scholarly study of Rav Shlomo's music, teachings and innovations, examining his life and career in relation to historical and cultural developments of his time, including the Holocaust and Six Day War, the hippie and New Age movements, and many other events that were directing the course of Jewish life. The book makes an attempt at understanding the appeal and roots of the Carlebach phenomenon, and provides a new framework for evaluating and appreciating Rav Shlomo's joy and optimism, heartfelt Judaism, and soulful rejuvenation that he passed to his followers.
