The Origins of Totalitarianism
The Origins of Totalitarianism is a three-volume book written by Hannah Arendt.
An Amazon reviewer wrote:
- Here, the role of propaganda and the secret police, as well as terror and the concentration camps are dealt with in their place in Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia. Arendt explores each of these issues and shows why they are so particularly disturbing. Arendt contends that totalitarianism sought to annihilate the nature of man completely. Repression and terror abound within the totalitarian state and freedom is virtually nonexistent.
