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

"One of the great achievements of historical writing in recent decades." --The New York Review of Books
