Beginning in 1951 with the publication of Origins of Totalitarianism, until her death in 1975, Hannah Arendt wrote all of her seminal works, including The Human Condition, Eichmann in Jerusalem, On Revolution, and The Life of the Mind. At the same time, she was contributing essays, reviews, and editorials to numerous publications and participating in recorded conversations, interviews, and public discussions. Now, for the first time, these various shorter texts-all of them published within her lifetime-are gathered together in a single volume that makes clear the remarkable range of her preoccupations and passions. EDITED AND WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY JEROME KOHN
