I’m pleased to announce that Hannah Arendt: A Life in Dark Times is now available for sale.
This eighth volume in Amazon Publishing’s celebrated ICONS series of short biographies traces the dramatic trials and intellectual triumphs of one of the most gifted and provocative voices of our time.
In this fast-paced, comprehensive book, Arendt’s greatest achievements are seen to derive from her courage, wit, and humanity amid the darkest days of 20th-century history.
I’d like to thank everyone who contributed to the research and writing of Hannah Arendt: A Life in Dark Times, including colleagues of Arendt, librarians, archivists, my agent, my editor, my writing group, and many friends. Because of your help, I trust that a new set of readers will come to understand the electrifying ideas and brave character of a woman who was devoted more than most to thinking through the problems that bedevil humanity–then and now.
