In this widely acclaimed biographical essay Christopher Hitchens assesses the life the achievements and the myth of the great political writer and participant George Orwell In true emulative and contrarian style Hitchens is both admiring and aggressive sympathetic yet critical taking true measure of his subject as hero and problem Answering both the detractors and the false claimants Hitchens tears down the fa ade of sainthood erected by the hagiographers and rebuts the critics point by point He examines Orwell and his perspectives on fascism empire feminism and Englishness as well as his outlook on America a country and culture towards which he exhibited much ambivalence br br Whether thinking about empires or dictators race or class nationalism or popular culture Orwell s moral outlook remains indispensable in a world that has undergone vast changes in the fifty years since his death Combining the best of Hitchens s polemical punch and intellectual elegance in a tightly woven and subtle argument this book addresses not only why Orwell matters today but how he will continue to matter in a future uncertain world br br Christopher Hitchens one of the most incisive minds of our own age meets Orwell on the page in this provocative encounter of wit contention and moral truth, With the detention of Augusto Pinochet and intense international pressure for the arrest of Slobodan Milosovic the possibility of international law acting against tyrants around the world is emerging as a reality In this incendiary book Hitchens takes the floor as prosecuting counsel and mounts a devastating indictment of a man whose ambitions and ruthlessness have directly resulted in both individual murders and widespread indiscriminate slaughter He investigates and reveals Kissingers involvement in the deliberate mass killings of civilian populations in Indochina the deliberate collusion in mass murder and assassination in Bangladesh the personal suborning and planning of a murder of a senior constitutional officer in a democratic nation that the USA was not war with Chile the incitement and enabling of a mass genocide in East Timor and the personal involvement in the kidnap and murder of a journalist living in Washinton DC, Among his many books perhaps none have sparked more outrage than i The Missionary Position i Christopher Hitchens s meticulous study of the life and deeds of Mother Teresa br br A Nobel Peace Prize recipient beatified by the Catholic Church in Mother Teresa of Calcutta was celebrated by heads of state and adored by millions for her work on behalf of the poor In his measured critique Hitchens asks only that Mother Teresa s reputation be judged by her actions not the other way around br br With characteristic elan and rhetorical dexterity Hitchens eviscerates the fawning cult of Teresa recasting the Albanian missionary as a spurious despotic and megalomaniacal operative of the wealthy who long opposed measures to end poverty and fraternized for financial gain with tyrants and white collar criminals throughout the world, Hitchens frames the argument for a more secular life based on science and reason in which hell is replaced by the Hubble Telescope s awesome view of the universe and Moses and the burning bush give way to the beauty and symmetry of the double helix br br In the tradition of Bertrand Russell s Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris s recent bestseller The End of Faith Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion With a close and erudite reading of the major religious texts he documents the ways in which religion is a man made wish a cause of dangerous sexual repression and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos br br With eloquent clarity Hitchens frames the argument for a more secular life based on science and reason in which hell is replaced by the Hubble Telescope s awesome view of the universe and Moses and the burning bush give way to the beauty and symmetry of the double helix
