RealClear Books on Arendt's Karl Marx and the Tradition of Political Thought.
It fills in two lacunae in Arendt's work: the intellectual labor connecting The Origins of Totalitarianism (1951) with later books such as The Human Condition (1958), and the development of Arendt's thought across the 1950s through a series of fragmented engagements with the writings of Marx and through polemics with American and German peers.
Makes sense. On my preliminary reading of the The Human Condition, it seems to be mainly a response to Marx's Labor Theory of Value and 20th century Marxist peers. More than it is Arendt's response to Heidegger. Maybe I need to read GA 19 on φρόνησις more closely.
