another new publication
I’m happy to announce that my 8000-word entry on “Hannah Arendt” has appeared in the massive new Encyclopedia of Political Thought, edited by Michael Gibbons, Diana Coole, Lisa Ellis, and Kennan Ferguson, and published (in eight print volumes and online) by Wiley Blackwell. This was a tough one to write: encyclopedias demand a certain amount of rehearsing the uncontroversial, which I tried to do as elegantly as I could, while also putting my own stamp on the piece. If your institution’s library hasn’t already ordered a copy or subscribed to the online version, I encourage you to encourage them to do so. It’s a pretty remarkable collection of contributors, and I’m sure I will be using this reference for many, many years.
