Book News
New interpretations of Arendt's work, from Eichmann in Jerusalem to The Life of the Mind , investigate the extent to which Arendt's identity as a Jewish woman influenced both her thought and its reception. Moving from a feminist analysis of the Eichmann controversy to a discussion of Jewish themes in Arendt's major theoretical works, the author demonstrates that Arendt's most sustained philosophical work was influenced as much by her Jewish heritage as by her German education.
