This is the first book length study of war in the thought of one of the
twentieth-century's most important and original political thinkers. Hannah
Arendt's writing was fundamentally rooted in her understanding of war and its
political significance. But this element of her work has surprisingly been
neglected in international and political theory. This book fills an important
gap by assessing the full range of Arendt's historical and conceptual writing
on war and introduces to international theory the distinct language she used to
talk about war and the political world. It builds on her re-thinking of old
concepts such as power, violence, greatness, world, imperialism, evil,
hypocrisy and humanity and introduces some that are new to international
thought like plurality, action, agonism, natality and political immortality.
The issues that Arendt dealt with throughout her life and work continue to
shape the political world and her approach to political thinking remains a
source of inspiration for those in search of guidance not in what to think but
how to think about politics and war. Re-reading Arendt's writing, forged
through firsthand experience of occupation and struggles for liberation,
political founding and resistance in time of war, reveals a more serious
engagement with war than her earlier readers have recognized. Arendt's
political theory makes more sense when it is understood in the context of her
thinking about war and we can think about the history and theory of warfare,
and international politics, in new ways by thinking with Arendt.
