A collection of 13 previously published essays that presents both the range of Arendt's political thought and the patterns of controversy it has elicited. The essays are arranged in six parts around important themes in Arendt's work: totalitarianism and evil; narrative and history; the public world and personal identity; action and power; justice, equality, and democracy; and thinking and judging. Among the contributors are Jurgen Habermas, Hanna Pitkin, and Sheldon Wolin. The editors provide a general introduction and brief introductions to each part. Paper edition (1854-5), $16.95. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, ORDespite such thematic diversity, virtually all the contributors have made an effort to build bridges between interest-driven politics and Arendta#39;s Hellenic/existential politics.
