Summary of Eichmann in Jerusalem Summary of Eichmann in Jerusalem Reviews for Eichmann in Jerusalem An Excerpt from Eichmann in Jerusalem
Originally appearing as a series of articles in The New Yorker, Hannah Arendt’s authoritative and stunning report on the trial of Nazi leader Adolf Eichmann sparked a flurry of debate upon its publication. This revised edition includes material that came to light after the trial, as well as Arendt’s postscript directly addressing the controversy that arose over her account. A major journalistic triumph by an intellectual of singular influence, Eichmann in Jerusalem is as shocking as it is informative—an unflinching look at one of the most unsettling (and unsettled) issues of the twentieth century that remains hotly debated to this day.
This edition includes an introduction by Amos Elan.
