While his post-9/11 turn to the right has defined Christopher Hitchens for the last two decades, we may now be in a position to rehabilitate his long pre-9/11 career as a left-wing polemicist.

Burgis reminds readers about what was best in Hitchens's writings and helps us gain a better understanding of how someone whose whole political life was animated by the values of the socialist left could have ended up holding grotesque positions on Iraq and the War on Terror.

Burgis' book makes a case for the enduring importance of engaging with Hitchens' complicated legacy.

Ben Burgis is a philosophy instructor, a columnist for Jacobin Magazine, and the host of the "Give Them An Argument" podcast and YouTube channel.
