The visual in the left is the cover of the book written by the woman on the right. A phrase that appears in the title of the book (which also summarizes the book's main thesis) is now often used to describe similar political events. Identify the author and the phrase.
Answer: The book shown is Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil by Hannah Arendt who reported on Eichmann's trial for The New Yorker. Based on her observation that apart from a desire to improve his career, Eichmann showed no anti-semitism or psychological trauma, she posited in the book that the great evils in history (and the holocaust in particular) had their roots not in psychopaths but in "normal" people who accepted their actions as routine. She coined the phrase Banality of Evil to describe this notion and this phrase gets used quite a bit now in the mainstream media. Iam is the only one to get this. Bravo.
