This highly acclaimed, prize-winning biography of one of the foremost political philosophers of the twentieth century is here reissued in a trade paperback edition for a new generation of readers. In a new preface the author offers an account of writings by and about Arendt that have appeared since the book's 1982 publication, providing a reassessment of her subject's life and achievement.

Praise for the earlier edition:

"Both a personal and an intellectual biography . . . It represents biography at its best."--Peter Berger, front page, The New York Times Book Review

"A story of surprising drama . . . . At last, we can see Arendt whole."--Jim Miller, Newsweek
"Indispensable to anyone interested in the life, the thought, or . . . the example of Hannah Arendt."--Mark Feeney, Boston Globe

"An adventure story that moves from pre-Nazi Germany to fame in the United States, and . . . a study of the influences that shaped a sharp political awareness."--Richmond (Va.) Times-Dispatch
