This chapter presents a condensed version of a piece written not long after Hannah Arendt's death in 1975. The original essay took its impetus from a request from Martin Peretz, editor of The New Republic, that the author review Ronald H. Feldman's pioneering collection of Arendt's writings, The Jew as Pariah: Jewish Identity and Politics in the Modern Age (1978), which now exists in an expanded version, The Jewish Writings, edited by Feldman and Jerome Kohn (2007). Peretz published the review as a cover essay in The New Republic in 1978. The author was then encouraged to expand and revise the essay for publication elsewhere, and the most complete version of the piece appeared in Salmagundi in 1983.

Keywords:   Hannah Arendt, Ronald H. Feldman, The New Republic, The Jewish Writings, pariah
