The origins of totalitarianism by Hannah Arendt ( Book )
153 editions published between 1951 and 2009 in 15 languages and held by 731 libraries worldwide
In [this book, the author] provide[s] a historical account of the forces that crystallized into totalitarianism: The ebb and flow of nineteenth-century anti-Semitism (she deemed the Dreyfus Affair a dress rehearsal for the Final Solution) and the rise of European imperialism, accompanied by the invention of racism as the only possible rationalization for it. For [the author,] totalitarianism was a form of governance that eliminated the very possibility of political action. Totalitarian leaders attract both mobs and elites, take advantage of the unthinkability of their atrocities, target "objective enemies" (classes of people who are liquidated simply because of their group membership), use terror to create total loyalty, rely on concentration camps, and are obsessive in their pursuit of global primacy. But even more presciently, [she] understood that totalitarian solutions could well survive the demise of totalitarian regimes.-Dust jacket.

We live amid escalating worldwide destruction and war. How do we make sense of it? In her enduring analysis of violence, [the author] points out that the glorification of violence is not restricted to a small minority of militants and extremists. The public revulsion for violence that followed World War II has dissipated, as have the nonviolent philosophies of the early civil-rights movement. How did this reversal come about? And where will it lead us? To answer these questions, [the author] puts theories about violence in historical perspective and reexamines the relationship between war and politics, violence and power. -Back cover.

Ce livre fait suite à "La philosophie de l'existence et autres essais". H. Arendt montre qu'il existe un mal plus pernicieux que le totalitarisme : indépendant de toute idéologie politique, il se révèle sans limite quand celui qui le perpétue n'éprouve aucun remords et oublie ses actes à mesure qu'il les commet. Les textes ici rassemblés permettent de mieux connaître sa conception de la morale.
