Description

Eric Hobsbawm (1917-2012) had interests covering many countries and many cultures, ranging from poetry to jazz, literature to politics. He experienced life as a young Communist in the Weimar Republic, a radical student at Cambridge, a political activist, an army conscript, a Soho ‘man about town’, a Hampstead intellectual, a Cambridge don, an influential journalist, and finally a Grand Old Man of Letters. In Eric Hobsbawm: A Life in History, eminent historian Richard J. Evans tells the story of Hobsbawm as an academic, but also as witness to history itself, and of the twentieth century’s major political and intellectual currents.
