About the Author:

Eric Hobsbawn is a fellow of the British Academy and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, he taught until retirement at Birkbeck College, University of London, and since then at the New York School for Social Reseach in New York.

Review:

The power of Hobsbawm's exploration of the age of hot and cold wars lies in its brilliant synthesis of familiar, though sometimes forgotten, facts and ideas. It combines an Olympian, multi-lingual erudition and an addictive, readable style. * Ben Pimlott, INDEPENDENT on Sunday Books of The Year * A brilliant and stimulating book. * FINANCIAL TIMES * A masterpiece * GUARDIAN * A magnificent piece of historical exposition... an essential read. * INDEPENDENT *
