It's hard to account for a biography that, its author acknowledges, is "of such tortuous dimension" and which follows Schmitt's works and their revisions closely, sometimes almost month by month, across much of the 96 years of his life. At over 550 pages of text, the biography "comes close to a chronicle," which "observes and records the sequence of events that made up Schmitt's problematic life, as well as his conscious attempts at finding normative orientation and stability."
