In this thought-provoking examination of twentieth-century totalitarianism, Michael Halberstam reveals how the idea of totalitarianism embodies truths and contradictions about liberalism. He offers a rich study in the history of political thought from Hobbes through Marx to the present and culminates with a new and surprising interpretation of Hannah Arendt`s theory of totalitarianism.
