Reviews

"This is a book of serious ideas, not of politics."-- Ben Wilson, Daily Telegraph--Ben Wilson"Daily Telegraph" (01/14/2011)
"Hobsbawm has lived through so much of the political turbulence he portrays that it is easy to fantasize that History itself is speaking here, in its wry, all-seeing, dispassionate wisdom. It is hard to think of a critic of Marxism who can address his or her own beliefs with such honesty and equipoise."--Terry Eagleton, London Review of Books-- (03/03/2011)

"[T]his collection shows [Hobsbawm] is a brilliant writer, erudite critic and, as he approaches his 94th birthday, a joyfully unrepentant communist. . . . [How to Change the World] is a book anyone interested in politics could and should devour. It is charmingly optimistic and constantly lucid, and contains the distilled wisdom of a great thinker, thinking about a great thinker." Amol Rajan, Independent-- (02/20/2011)
"Hobsbawm... is as clear and trenchant as ever in How to Change the World."--Bookforum--Bookforum
