From the Back Cover:

“It is lucidly written with a persuasive tone of urgency, keenly advancing our understanding of Arendt while emphasizing her contribution to a much needed ‘new sense of the nature of the political and its role in human society.’ The author’s approach to Arendt and to other analysts of her work is bold and argumentative.”—Choice
“Hansen’s exegetical skill makes his a sophisticated introducotry text for those less familiar with Arendt’s writings.”—American Political Science Review
