╒ Free Read Hardcover @Letters to a Young Contrarian (Art of Mentoring) ▓ Kindle Author Christopher Hitchens ◓ ╒ Free Read Hardcover @Letters to a Young Contrarian (Art of Mentoring) ▓ Kindle Author Christopher Hitchens ◓ Do justice, and let the skies fall Christopher Hitchens borrows from Roman antiquity this touchstone for a career of confrontation, argument, and troublemaking Part of the Art of Mentoring series, Letters to a Young Contrarian is a trim volume of about two dozen letters to an imaginary student of controversy The letters are wonderfully engaging Hitchens is an exceptional prose stylist and from the outset they strike a self reflective note What Hitchens lionizes and illuminates in this book is not any particular disagreement, but a way of being perpetually at odds with the mainstream Humanity is very much in debt to such people, he argues. Hitchens s style is incendiary and sometimes flamboyant He relishes the role of provocateur and fancies himself a gadfly to the drowsy American republic One of his main strengths is his erudition, allowing him to range over vast landscapes of the humanities and politics in a single breath But he is also sometimes glib and self satisfied, and his penchant for referencing everything in sight can be distracting Nonetheless, his arguments are forceful and morally important and if the reader feels otherwise, there are few fitting compliments to a professional dissident than dissent Eric de PlaceHitchens, a columnist for the Nation and Vanity Fair, and author, most recently, of The Trial of Henry Kissinger, has made a career of disagreement and dissent, of being the thorn in search of a side Only an open conflict of ideas and principles can produce any clarity, he observes Hitchens s views, also part of the Art of Mentoring series see Dershowitz, above , unfold in the form of an ongoing correspondence with an imaginary mentee whom he advises on modes of thought, argument and self determination, on how to live at an angle to the safety and mediocrity of consensus The threats to free will are many, some predictable establishment powers, the media, religious edicts, the manipulation of language, polls, labels, people with answers Less obvious corrosives the Dalai Lama, harmony, the New York Times claim to publish all the news that s fit to print conceited and censorious Indeed, the supply of enemies to rail against seems endless Over a short span, Hitchens sounds off on a variety of topics irony, radicalism, anarchy, socialism, solitude, faith and humor, to name a few propelling readers through both time and space, from the Bible to Bosnia At times, the argumentative positions seem offered up for their own sake which the author argues is justified and may inadvertently raise the question of how far we can define ourselves by what we are not But this mini manifesto, despite the somewhat mountainous terrain, should provide readers interested in current events and anti establishment philosophy with a clearer view into one of today s restless and provocative minds Oct Forecast Basic figures there are as many budding contrarians out there as there are budding lawyers The house is launching the new Art of Mentoring series with a 75,000 copy first printing of both books With good media coverage both authors will tour , Dershowitz s name and Hitchens s prickly reputation, both books should do well.Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc.
