Antisemitism Book Excerpt:

In the first volume of her landmark philosophical work, The Origins of Totalitarianism, the political theorist traces the rise of antisemitism in Europe. Since it was first published in 1951, The Origins of Totalitarianism has been recognized as the definitive philosophical account of the totalitarian mindset. A probing analysis of Nazism, Stalinism, and the “banality of evil”, it remains one of the most referenced works in studies and discussions of totalitarian movements around the world. In this first volume, Antisemitism, Dr. Hannah Arendt traces the rise of antisemitism to Central and Western European Jewish history during the 19th century. With the appearance of the first political activity by antisemitic parties in the 1870s and 1880s, Arendt states, the machinery that led to the horrors of the Holocaust was set in motion. The Dreyfus Affair, in Arendt’s view, was “a kind of dress rehearsal”—the first modern use of antisemitism as an instrument of public policy and of hysteria as a political weapon. “The most original and profound—therefore the most valuable—political theorist of our times.”—Dwight MacDonald, The New Leader

Imperialism Book Excerpt:

In the second volume of The Origins of Totalitarianism, the political theorist traces the decline of European colonialism and the outbreak of WWI. Since it was first published in 1951, The Origins of Totalitarianism has been recognized as the definitive philosophical account of the totalitarian mindset. A probing analysis of Nazism, Stalinism, and the “banality of evil”, it remains one of the most referenced works in studies and discussions of totalitarian movements around the world. In this second volume, Imperialism, Dr. Hannah Arendt examines the cruel epoch of declining European colonial imperialism from 1884 to the outbreak of the First World War. Through portraits of Disraili, Cecil Rhodes, Gobineau, Proust, and T.E. Lawrence, Arendt illustrates how this era ended with the decline of the nation-state and the disintegration of Europe’s class society. These two events, Arendt argues, generated totalitarianism, which in turn produced the Holocaust. “The most original and profound—therefore the most valuable—political theorist of our times.”—Dwight MacDonald, The New Leader

Summary of Hannah Arendt s The Origins of Totalitarianism Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Nothing is more characteristic of the totalitarian movements in general and of the fame of their leaders in particular than the startling swiftness with which they are forgotten and the ease with which they can be replaced. #2 It is a serious mistake to forget that the totalitarian regimes, while they are in power, command and rest upon mass support. This support is not simply a result of self-interest, which is the most powerful psychological factor in politics. #3 The attraction of evil and crime for the mob mentality is nothing new. It has always been true that the mob will admire deeds of violence for their cleverness. The disturbing fact about totalitarianism is the true selflessness of its adherents: they will not waver even if their own children are being harmed. #4 The totalitarian movements aim at and succeed in organizing masses, not classes. While all political groups depend on proportionate strength, the totalitarian movements depend on the sheer force of numbers to such an extent that they seem impossible, even under otherwise favorable circumstances, in countries with relatively small populations.

The Banality of Evil Book Excerpt:

Takes its point of departure from Hannah Arendt's "Eichmann in Jerusalem." Focuses neither on Eichmann nor the Holocaust, but on what Bergen sees as the political and philosophical consequences of the "banality of evil." These derive from the human failure to develop the thought, will, and judgment that are necessary to prevent the kind of evil committed by the Nazis. Like Arendt, Bergen is more concerned with totalitarianism than antisemitism, often referring to her work "The Origins of Totalitarianism."

The Origins of Totalitarianism Imperialism Book Excerpt:

This remarkable book has been foremost wherever the characteristics and problems of the twentieth century were discussed. Uncovering the roots of totalitarianism, Dr. Arendt evokes the subterranean stream of nineteenth-century European history in which totalitarian elements first appeared, before the twentieth-century decline of the nation-state and the disintegration of class society brought about their crystallization into total domination resting on mass support. Beginning with a study of anti-semitism, and after presenting the Dreyfus Affair, she goes on to a study of imperialism and demonstrates how the interplay of racism, power-seeking, and economic developments generate autonomous processes that are limitless and aimless. The climax of the book is the last third, which deals with the institutions, organizations, and functioning of totalitarian movements and governments, with the attraction they exerted on the European masses as well as on the intellectual elite. -- Form publisher's description.

Reading The Origins of Totalitarianism in 2020 Book Excerpt:

First published in 1951, The Origins of Totalitarianism is frequently ranked amongst the top non-fiction books of the 20th century and all time. Having witnessed the great tragedies of WWII, Arendt's work is full of hard-won lessons learned in the aftermath of great horrors-lessons certainly applicable to the unrest of today. This short book seeks to synthesize and relate the dense and much needed wisdom of Arendt's insight into totalitarianism for today. Meant as a guide through Arendt's masterwork, this short volume clearly and concisely draws out the enduring and relevant themes. Specifically written to address the confusion and unrest of our times, this guide summarizes and explains Arendt's insight into: movements, ideology, the rootlessness of mass society, and much more. After a succinct yet detailed exploration of the major themes of Origins, a short editorial conclusion explicitly connects Arendt's insights to today's political situation in a nonpartisan manner. This succinct book will be of great interest to anyone seeking nuanced and detailed thought on the foundational problems and history of our unrest today.

Rightlessness in an Age of Rights Book Excerpt:

There have been remarkable developments in the field of human rights in the past few decades. Still, millions of asylum-seekers, refugees, and undocumented immigrants continue to find it challenging to access human rights. In this book, Ayten Gündogdu builds on Hannah Arendt's analysis of statelessness and argues that these challenges reveal the perplexities of human rights. Human rights promise equal personhood regardless of citizenship status, yet their existing formulations are tied to the principle of territorial sovereignty. This situation leaves various categories of migrants in a condition of "rightlessness," with a very precarious legal, political, and human standing. Gündogdu examines this problem in the context of immigration detention, deportation, and refugee camps. Critical of the existing system of human rights without seeing it as a dead end, she argues for the need to pay closer attention to the political practices of migrants who challenge their condition of rightlessness and propose new understandings of human rights. What arises from this critical reflection on human rights is also a novel reading of Arendt, one that offers refreshing insights into various dimensions of her political thought, including her account of the human condition, "the social question," and "the right to have rights." Rightlessness in an Age of Rights is a valuable addition to the literature on Hannah Arendt and a vital way of rethinking human rights as they relate to contemporary issues of immigration.

Essays in Understanding 1930 1954 Book Excerpt:

Few thinkers have addressed the political horrors and ethical complexities of the twentieth century with the insight and passionate intellectual integrity of Hannah Arendt. She was irresistible drawn to the activity of understanding, in an effort to endow historic, political, and cultural events with meaning. Essays in Understanding assembles many of Arendt’s writings from the 1930s, 1940s, and into the 1950s. Included here are illuminating discussions of St. Augustine, existentialism, Kafka, and Kierkegaard: relatively early examinations of Nazism, responsibility and guilt, and the place of religion in the modern world: and her later investigations into the nature of totalitarianism that Arendt set down after The Origins of Totalitarianism was published in 1951. The body of work gathered in this volume gives us a remarkable portrait of Arendt’s developments as a thinker—and confirms why her ideas and judgments remain as provocative and seminal today as they were when she first set them down.

Between Past and Future Book Excerpt:

From the author of Eichmann in Jerusalem and The Origins of Totalitarianism, “a book to think with through the political impasses and cultural confusions of our day” (Harper’s Magazine) Hannah Arendt’s insightful observations of the modern world, based on a profound knowledge of the past, constitute an impassioned contribution to political philosophy. In Between Past and Future Arendt describes the perplexing crises modern society faces as a result of the loss of meaning of the traditional key words of politics: justice, reason, responsibility, virtue, and glory. Through a series of eight exercises, she shows how we can redistill the vital essence of these concepts and use them to regain a frame of reference for the future. To participate in these exercises is to associate, in action, with one of the most original and fruitful minds of the twentieth century.
