With his pummeling erudition and wit, journalist Christopher Hitchens addresses the most urgent issue of our time: the malignant force of religion in the world. Redefining the debate about religion in public life, Hitchens takes on the faithful, arguing eloquently to make the ultimate case against religion through a close & learned reading of the major religious texts. Citing the personal story of his own dangerous encounters with faith, Hitchens describes his intellectual journey toward a secular view of life based on science and reason, in which the heavens are replaced by the Hubble telescope's awesome view and the double helix replaces Moses and the burning bush. 307p.

One of the most noticed and debated public intellectuals of our time, despite decades on the public stage, Christopher Hitchens has rarely written of the private dimensions of his life - until now. The book is the candid,personal history of a complicated man: English-born and American by adoption, all atheist and partly Jewish, stalwartly bohemian (proudly flaunting 'drinking' along with 'disputation' as 'hobbies' in Who's Who), and rigorously intellectual. Here he discusses his famously unbending convictions, tracing the thread of principle that connects his opposition to war in Vietnam and his support for intervention in Iraq. Written in a mode that is anything but shy. Photos.
