BOOK ABSTRACT:

Amazon Book Description

  1. Hannah Arendt's portrayal of the terrible consequences of blind obedience, Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil contains an introduction by Amos Elon in Penguin Classics.
  2. Sparking a flurry of heated debate, Hannah Arendt's authoritative and stunning report on the trial of German Nazi SS leader Adolf Eichmann first appeared as a series of articles in The New Yorker in 1963. This revised edition includes material that came to light after the trial, as well as Arendt's postscript commenting on the controversy that arose over her book.
  3. A major journalistic triumph by an intellectual of singular influence, Eichmann in Jerusalem is as shocking as it is informative – a meticulous and unflinching look at one of the most unsettling (and unsettled) issues of the twentieth century.
