Peter Baehr has done a great service to keeping Hannah Arendt's work accessible to a wider audience. This collection is a superb primer for this broad and challenging thinker.

One of those books that develops one understanding of the world. Thoughtfully and fairly written, it reveals much that was new to me despite much previous reading in this subject area. Arendt's journalistic skill is much in evidence with a compact readable informal prose style making the most opaque aspects accessible.

Many questions are raised by this book, many deeper studies are suggested; that is inherent in the subject matter and that a further tribute to the author that unknown areas were neither glossed over nor closed down, but rather the reader completes the book and is left with a desire for more study

Given the date, the book also seems very modern, the scholarship having stood up well to the passing years. A few sentences might be revised in light of what is now known, but these do not detract from the work to any significant degree.

An essential work for all lovers of peace, all who seek to find love for their fellow men but realise the need to understand the realities of the world in which we live

The selection of Hannah Arendt's writings is very good and as her writing style is so pure and clear the book is a pleasure to read, other than the editor's introduction. If only he had learned something from Hannah Arendt's and avoided being so convoluted, conscientiously learned and not used so many big words to impress. A book worth having.

Hannah Aren't is a master of Totalitarian philosophy. Very accessible.
