Over the course of his years Christopher Hitchens has been a citizen of both the United States and the United Kingdom He has been both a socialist opposed to the war in Vietnam and a supporter of the U S war against Islamic extremism in Iraq He has been both a foreign correspondent in some of the world s most dangerous places and a legendary bon vivant with an unquenchable thirst for alcohol and literature He is a fervent atheist raised as a Christian by a mother whose Jewish heritage was not revealed to him until her suicide br br In other words Christopher Hitchens contains multitudes He sees all sides of an argument And he believes the personal is political br br This is the story of his life lived large, 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, On June while on a book tour for his bestselling memoir i Hitch i Christopher Hitchens was stricken in his New York hotel room with excruciating pain in his chest and thorax As he would later write in the first of a series of award winning columns for Vanity Fair he suddenly found himself being deported from the country of the well across the stark frontier that marks off the land of malady Over the next eighteen months until his death in Houston on December he wrote constantly and brilliantly on politics and culture astonishing readers with his capacity for superior work even in extremis br br Throughout the course of his ordeal battling esophageal cancer Hitchens adamantly and bravely refused the solace of religion preferring to confront death with both eyes open In this account of his affliction he describes the torments of illness discusses its taboos and explores how disease transforms experience and changes our relationship to the world around us By turns personal and philosophical Hitchens embraces the full panoply of human emotions as cancer invades his body and compels him to grapple with the enigma of death, In this unique biography of Thomas Jefferson leading journalist and social critic Christopher Hitchens offers a startlingly new and provocative interpretation of our Founding Father Situating Jefferson within the context of America s evolution and tracing his legacy over the past two hundred years Hitchens brings the character of Jefferson to life as a man of his time and also as a symbolic figure beyond it br br Conflicted by power Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence and acted as Minister to France yet yearned for a quieter career in the Virginia legislature Predicting that slavery would shape the future of America s development this professed proponent of emancipation elided the issue in the Declaration and continued to own human property An eloquent writer he was an awkward public speaker a reluctant candidate he left an indelible presidential legacy br br Jefferson s statesmanship enabled him to negotiate the Louisiana Purchase with France doubling the size of the nation and he authorized the Lewis and Clark expedition opening up the American frontier for exploration and settlement Hitchens also analyzes Jefferson s handling of the Barbary War a lesser known chapter of his political career when his attempt to end the kidnapping and bribery of Americans by the Barbary states and the subsequent war with Tripoli led to the building of the U S navy and the fortification of America s reputation regarding national defense br br In the background of this sophisticated analysis is a large historical drama the fledgling nation s struggle for independence formed in the crucible of the eighteenth century Enlightenment and in its shadow the deformation of that struggle in the excesses of the French Revolution This artful portrait of a formative figure and a turbulent era poses a challenge to anyone interested in American history or in the ambiguities of human nature
