These seminal, uncollected essays by the late Christopher Hitchens, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller god is not Great, showcase the notorious contrarian’s genius for rhetoric, and offer sharp rebukes to tyrants and the ill-informed everywhere.

Christopher Hitchens was arguably the most erudite, provocative, and polarizing writers of the last twenty-five years. When he passed away in 2011 from esophageal cancer, writers, readers, pundits, and critics around the world mourned his loss.

This collection of essays brings together some of the finest pieces Hitchens published over the last two decades for the first time in one book, addressing with characteristic wit and erudition the subjects he is best known for, including: the case against God, faith and religious observance; the case for intervention in Iraq; indictments of towering political figures like Bill and Hillary Clinton, Tony Blair, and Henry Kissinger; and celebrations of the writers and thinkers whose work meant most to him, from Saul Bellow, George Orwell, Thomas Jefferson, and Thomas Paine, to his dear friends Martin Amis and Salman Rushdie, among others.
