Reviews

"Eric Hobsbawm is one of the few genuinely great historians of our century." --The New Republic "Brilliant. . . . [This period] must be understood from a global perspective. Hobsbawm is at his best when he dissects the bourgeois culture of 'repectability.'" --The New York Times Book Review
