"A brilliantly erudite and imaginative book."
–Adam Kirsch, The New York Sun
“By insisting that politics remain a promise rather than a threat, Arendt offers a hope that history has yet to justify.”
–The New York Sun
“Arendt demonstrated, brilliantly, how our habitual view of politics as an instrument in the service of private liberty, material gain, and social prosperity actually increases the dangers posed by the modern world.”
–Dana R. Villa, author of Arendt and Heidegger and Socratic Citizenship
