    Sparking a flurry of heated debate, Hannah Arendt's authoritative and stunning report on the trial of German Nazi leader Adolf Eichmann first appeared in The New Yorker in 1963. This revised edition includes material that came to light after the trial, as well as Arendt's postscript. 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 20th century.

    Considered by many to be Hannah Arendt's greatest work, published as she neared the end of her life, The Life of the Mind investigates thought itself, as it exists in contemplative life. In a shift from her previous writings, most of which focus on the world outside the mind, this work was planned as three volumes that would explore the activities of the mind considered by Arendt to be fundamental. What emerged is a rich, challenging analysis of human mental activity, considered in terms of thinking, willing, and judging.

    Hannah Arendt's insightful observations of the modern world, based on a profound knowledge of the past, constitute an impassioned contribution to political philosophy. In Between Past and Future, Arendt describes the perplexing crises modern society faces as a result of the loss of meaning of the traditional key words of politics: justice, reason, responsibility, virtue, and glory. Through a series of eight exercises, she shows how we can redistill the vital essence of these concepts and use them to regain a frame of reference for the future.

    "Mein Thema heute, so fürchte ich, ist fast schon beschämend aktuell." Was ist Freiheit, und was bedeutet sie uns? Begreifen wir sie nur als die Abwesenheit von Furcht und von Zwängen, oder meint Freiheit nicht vielmehr auch, sich an gesellschaftlichen Prozessen zu beteiligen, eine eigene politische Stimme zu haben, um von anderen gehört, erkannt und schließlich erinnert zu werden? Und: Haben wir diese Freiheit einfach, oder wer gibt sie uns, und kann man sie uns auch wieder wegnehmen? In diesem auf Deutsch bisher unveröffentlichten Essay zeichnet Hannah Arendt die historische Entwicklung des Freiheitsbegriffs nach.
