Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Tavia Gilbert’s fast-paced narration of this study goes far to support the listener…This audiobook is an excellent support for those who might founder in reading the 1963 text unaided by Gilbert’s helpful guidance.” AudioFile
“Arendt’s admirers will welcome her excursion into the relatively neglected field of comparative revolution. She is never dull, enormously erudite, always imaginative, original, and full of insights.” Sunday Times (London)
" This is a study to which the thoughtful reader can return again and again for both intellectual delight and profit.” Atlantic
“We are in the presence of a mind of high individuality, great interest, and intellectual integrity… A powerful indictment and illumination, both immediate and enduring.” Kirkus Reviews
