Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil (Penguin Classics) Cover

 

Review-A-Day

"There are new understandings of how the Nazi hierarchy worked, and a firmer grasp of the contingent evolution of the final solution. And yet, it's all there in Arendt's classic....Arendt's insightful observations on humanity and bureaucracy make Eichmann in Jerusalem a must-read. The book forms a perfect object lesson on why it is vitally important for each and every one of us to question our authority figures, and question ourselves, on the true moral rectitude of our actions." Doug Brown, Powells.com (read the entire Powells.com review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This report on the trial of German Nazi leader Adolf Eichmann first appeared as a series of articles in the New Yorker in 1963. This edition contains further factual material that came to light after the trial, as well as Arendt's postscript commenting on the controversy that arose over her book.

Review:

"A profound and documented analysis....Bound to stir our minds and trouble our consciences." Chicago Tribune

Review:

"If, in recalling the period, one could shut one's eyes to the scenes of brutal massacre and stop one's ears to the screams of horror-stricken women and terrorized children as they saw the tornado of death sweeping toward them, one could almost assume that in some parts of the book the author is being whimsical." The New York Times Book Review

Synopsis:

Hannah Arendt's authoritative report on the trial of Nazi leader Adolf Eichmann includes further factual material that came to light after the trial, as well as Arendt's postscript directly addressing the controversy that arose over her account.

Synopsis:

The controversial journalistic analysis of the mentality that fostered the Holocaust

 

Originally appearing as a series of articles in The New Yorker, Hannah Arendts authoritative and stunning report on the trial of Nazi leader Adolf Eichmann sparked a flurry of debate upon its publication. This revised edition includes material that came to light after the trial, as well as Arendts postscript directly addressing the controversy that arose over her account. A major journalistic triumph by an intellectual of singular influence, Eichmann in Jerusalem is as shocking as it is informative—an unflinching look at one of the most unsettling (and unsettled) issues of the twentieth century that remains hotly debated to this day. This Penguin Classics edition includes an introduction by Amos Elan.

For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.
