The fiftieth anniversary of the Adolf Eichmann trial may have come and gone but in many countries around the world there is a renewed focus on the trial, Eichmann himself, and the nature of his crimes. This increased attention also stimulates scrutiny of Hannah Arendt's influential and controversial work, Eichmann in Jerusalem. The contributors gathered together by Richard J. Golsan and Sarah M. Misemer in The Trial That Never Ends assess the contested legacy of Hannah Arendt's famous book and the issues she raised: the "banality of evil", the possibility of justice in the aftermath of monstrous crimes, the right of Israel to kidnap and judge Eichmann, and the agency and role of victims. The contributors also interrogate Arendt's own ambivalent attitudes towards race and critically interpret the nature of the crimes Eichmann committed in light of newly discovered Nazi documents. The Trial That Never Ends responds to new scholarship by Deborah Lipstadt, Bettina Stangneth, and Shoshana Felman and offers rich new ground for historical, legal, philosophical, and psychological speculation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a collection well worth reading..." -- Ned Curthoys, The University of Western Australia * Arendt Studies, vol. 2, 2018 *
"As a reflection of current trends in a variety of disciplines, this essay collection serves as an apt contribution to a debate that, given the multifaceted nature of Arendt's oeuvre and the pervasiveness of mass violence, is not likely to end any time soon." -- J rgen Matth us, Washington, D.C. * American Historical Review, April 2019 *
