"An utterly fascinating book."
—THE NEW YORKER
"A wise as well as exciting book; a very valuable addition to the history of mentalities and to that of popular protest... This is human history at its very best."
—THE TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT [London]
"A dazzling historical squib, fizzing with ideas and strange stories."
"In an age of narrow specialists, Eric Hobsbawm remains the supreme generalist... For sheer intelligence he has no superior in the historical profession."
—SIR KEITH THOMAS
