From the Publisher:
Hannah Arendt's authoritative report on the trial of Nazi leader Adolf Eichmann is a classic examination of evil from one of the great philosophers of the twentieth century.
Hannah Arendt received her B.A. from Koenigsberg University, and also attended universities at Marburg and Freiburg, Germany. She studied with the existentialist philosopher Karl Jaspers at Heidelberg University, and received her Ph.D. there in 1928, at the youthful age of 22. In 1933, as Hitler was poised to rule Germany, Arendt fled to Paris, and from 1934 to 1940, assisted in finding homes in Palestine for homeless or orphaned Jewish children. Before immigrating to the U.S. in 1941, she married Heinrich Bluecher, a professor of philosophy. Arendt worked as a book editor in New York, and as director of various Jewish civic and cultural organizations. She held teaching posts at the University of Chicago, Berkeley, Columbia, Brooklyn College, the New School of Social Research in New York, and received the first full female professorship at Princeton University in 1959. She won numerous awards and honorary degrees, and her writings on totalitarianism and the Jews have earned her a lasting reputation as one of the century's most influential political theorists.
