Sparking a flurry of heated debate, Hannah Arendt's authoritative and stunning report on the trial of German Nazi 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 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.

"Arendt was an influential German-American thinker who analyzed human society and why it developed into the raw era of the mid-twentieth century. (She died in 1975.) Using the Adolf Eichmann trial that took place in Jerusalem in 1961-62 as a point of analysis--she was in the audience--she details how the Holocaust came about through the manipulated thinking of apathetic European masses. Narrator Wanda McCaddon brings a cultured British slant to the narrative, sometimes gently delivering various European accents while moving forward calmly and rationally. Were Arendt to have narrated, the text would have come across more adamantly, as one can hear in audios from her academic lectures. D.R.W. 2012 Audies Finalist (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
