AUTHOR

Arendt, Hannah

SUMMARY

"The virtue of Arendt's book [is] that it views Eichmann and his trial as posing the problem of the human being within a modern totalitarian system. But in a way it is also its shortcoming: the issues are so vast that we do not seem able yet to cope with them intellectually, though her book is certainly a most serious and in part successful effort to do so...Arendt is right not to grant the murdered Jews the sainthood of martyrs, and to view them simply as men...While I would recommend this book for many reasons, the most important one is that our best protection against oppressive control and dehumanizing totalitarianism is still a personal understanding of events as they happen. To this end Hannah Arendt has furnished us with a richness of material.Arendt, Hannah is the author of 'Eichmann in Jerusalem A Report on the Banality of Evil', published 1994 under ISBN 9780140187656 and ISBN 0140187650.
