Reviews

PRAISE FOR ERIC HOBSBAWM'S
"The Age of Extremes:
A History of the World, 1914-1991
""The fact is that no other living historian of whatever political affiliation has the intellectual firepower-the range and depth of knowledge, the analytical skill-to bring off a book like this."
-Niall Ferguson, "The Sunday Telegraph
""Hobsbawm's magisterial treatment of the short twentieth century will be the definitive "fin-de-siecle" work."
-Kenneth Prewitt, School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University
"No historian can match his overwhelming command of fact and source... Hobsbawm's gift for startling, often seductive generalizations from his material has only grown. He is a historian, not a novelist, but the engine inside his head is a Rolls-Royce imagination."
-Neal Ascherson, "The Independent
"
As close to essential reading as the times allow.
--"THE NEW YORK OBSERVER"
The popular people's historian who has influenced our understanding of the previous three centuries like no other.
--"THE BOSTON GLOBE"
The fact is that no other living historian [before Hobsbawm's death in 2012] of whatever political affiliation has the intellectual firepower--the range and depth of knowledge, the analytical skill.
--NIALL FERGUSON, "THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH"
No historian can match his overwhelming command of fact and source. . . . Hobsbawm's gift for startling, often seductive generalizations from his material has only grown.
