The Origins of Totalitarianism

Hanna Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism (New York: Harcourt, 1951). I was assigned this book as a freshman in college and read the first 50 pages. Saw it in the bookstore and gave it another try. Rather long, deep and slow-reading ( I often read a passage twice). Very insightful and thoughtful analysis of the form of government of Hitler and Stalin.
