Eichmann in Jerusalem
‘A profound and documented analysis … Bound to stir our minds and trouble our consciences’ Chicago Tribune
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. 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.
