Reviews

"Penetrating. . . . Offers a powerful interpretation of the wellsprings of an age of unprecedently economic transformation, mass slaughter and social upheaval. . . . Facts roll off Hobsbawm's pages like thunderbolts." --The New Republic

"A magical re-creation of the most creative and destructive, the most utopian and most doubt-ridden period of human history. . . . I know of no other account that sheds as much light on what is now behind us, and thereby casts so much illumination on our possible futures." --Robert Heilbroner

"Powerful. . . . A bracing and magisterial work." --The New York Times Book Review
