Summary"Hannah Arendt was one of the most distinguished political theorists of the twentieth century... It is understandable that a thinker as wide-ranging, as original and as provocative as Hannah Arendt should present many challenges for interpreters of her work. How should one situate her thinking? Do the several arguments of her various writings cohere together? What is the significance of her work for contemporary political ideologies and movements? The essays gathered in this volume address these questions and others that arise from her work from various points of view." —Introduction, page ii
