    With his unique fusion of erudition and wit, Hitchens addresses the most urgent issue of our time: the malignant force of religion in the world. In this eloquent argument with the faithful, he makes the ultimate case against dogma (and for a more secular approach to life) through a close and learned reading of the major theological texts. Hitchens tells the personal story of his own dangerous encounters with religion and describes his intellectual journey toward a secular view of life based on science and reason. Christopher Hitchens passed away on December 15, 2011. References, Index. A National Book Award Finalist. 320p.
  • Hitch-22: A Memoir

    • Publisher: Twelve
    • Published: June 2010
    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.
