Editorial Reviews

Review

Bernard Bergen has written a thoughtful, clear inquiry into the key concepts and interpretations that make up Hannah Arendt's theory of totalitarianism. He approaches her Eichmann in Jerusalem with rare balance of judgment and sensitivity. (Elisabeth Young-Bruehl, Haverford College; author of Anna Freud: A Biography)

The Banality of Evil ...is interesting exploration of Arendt's thought. ...it is worth considering seriously. (Studies In Contemporary Jewry)

[Bergen] offers a fresh interpretation of the controversial phrase 'the banality of evil.' (CHOICE)

About the Author

Bernard J. Bergen is professor emeritus of psychiatry and sociology at the Darmouth Medical School and Dartmouth College. Among his books is "Illumination of Darkness: Freud and the Social Bond".

This book is genius but it is very scary. I haven't finished it yet for that reason. But I do admire the writing and all the information given.
