Boekbeschrijving

When should we revolt? A life-changing insight into violent political change by one of the world's greatest political thinkers and author of surprise recent bestseller The Origins of Totalitarianism. 'More than any thinker it was Arendt who identified how movements of ideas, racial theories, people and methods ... ultimately disfigured the twentieth century.' David Olusoga 'Arendt's most profound legacy is in establishing that one has to consider oneself political as part of the human condition. What are your political acts, and what politics do they serve?' Guardian 'How could such a book speak so powerfully to our present moment? The short answer is that we, too, live in dark times.' Washington Post (on The Origins of Totalitarianism) On Revolution is world-famous political thinker Hannah Arendt's classic exploration of a phenomenon that has radically reshaped the world. From eighteenth-century rebellions in America and France to the explosive political upheavals of the twentieth-century, Hannah Arendt traces the changing face of revolution and its relationship to war - and reveals the crucial role these globe-shaking events will play in the future of humanity. Urgent yet timeless, On Revolution is essential reading for anyone seeking to decipher the forces that have shaped our tumultuous age. 'Enormously erudite, always imaginative, original and full of insights.' Sunday Times 'Remarkable for us, no doubt, is Arendt's conviction that only philosophy could have saved those millions of lives.' Judith Butler
