33 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this masterful and highly accessible study of our times, one of the world's leading historians sheds exciting new light on our understanding of the twentieth century, with incisive assessments of events that have marked this turbulent period. Eric Hobsbawm, whose own life spans this century, deftly examines from both personal and scholarly perspectives such events as the great economic depression of the 1930s, the Cold War, the rise of military regimes, revolutionary changes in the arts, and technological advances in the sciences. Divided into three parts - The Age of Catastrophe, 1914-1950; The Golden Age, 1950-1973; and The Landslide, 1973-1991 - the book looks at the legacy of the two world wars, the end of colonialism and the growing importance of the Third World, as well as the collapse of the Soviet Union. Hobsbawm ponders the influence of the economic and social upheavals of the third quarter of the twentieth century, which, he states, brought about the "most profound revolution in society since the Stone Age." In conclusion, Hobsbawm looks to the next millennium, pointing up the dilemmas posed by a burgeoning population, destruction of the environment, and the growing economic disparity between rich and poor. Writes Hobsbawm, "Our world risks both explosion and implosion. It must change." With an astonishing command of historical details and data, The Age of Extremes is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding the cultural and social context in which we live
Bandits by E. J Hobsbawm( Book )

69 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bandits is a study of the social bandit or bandit-rebel - robbers and outlaws who are not regarded by public opinion as simple criminals, but rather as champions of social justice, as avengers or as primitive resistance fighters." "Whether Balkan haiduks, Indian dacoits or Brazilian congaceiros, their spectacular exploits have been celebrated and preserved in story and myth. Some are known only to their own countrymen; others, like Robin Hood, Rob Roy and Jesse James, are famous throughout the world. Setting the historical figures against the ballads, legends and films they have inspired, the author's examples range across the last four hundred years and come from Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia."--Jacket

Labouring men; studies in the history of labour by E. J Hobsbawm( Book )

84 editions published between 1964 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The topics covered in this book can be divided into four broad groups: studies of labour conditions up to the middle of the nineteenth century; studies in the 'new trade unionism' of 1889 to 1914; studies in the late nineteenth-century revival of Socialism in Britain; and more general topics covering a wider chronological span. The common factor in this wide-ranging work is that, unlike much other work of labour history, it concentrates on the working classes as such, and on the economic and technical conditions which allowed labour movements to be effective or which prevented their effectiveness. This work is notable not only for its clarity and incisiveness, but also for the richness and variety of the material, which ranges from Marx to Methodism and from labour traditions to the machine breakers
Revolutionaries : contemporary essays by Eric J Hobbsbawm( Book )

44 editions published between 1973 and 1994 in 3 languages and held by 1,335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Professor Hobsbawn, Marxist, historian and 'participant observer' has involved himself, intellectually and ideologically, in the concept of revolution as a means of social change. Revolutionaries is the result of this involvement: a collection of lectures and critical essays researched and written 'realistically though not dispassionately'. Concentrating on both the theory and practice of revolution he treats familiar themes such as anarchism, Marxism, Leninism and Britain's relation to these ideologies; guerrilla warfare, civil-military relations and the class struggle. In addition he discusses less traditional subjects such as the relations between the structure of cities and urban insurrections; the social implications of controlling violence; and the philosophical works of Ernst Block, Karl Korsch, Louis Althusser and Hannah Arendt. Revolutionaries is a lucid exploration of important epochs and events. It offers a clarification and an appreciation of the past and of our relationship to it"--Cover
Captain Swing by E. J Hobsbawm( Book )

71 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two of the world's great Marxist historians present a classic social history of the Great English Agricultural Uprising of 1830. For generation upon generation, the English farm laborer lived in poverty and degradation. With the onset of the Industrial Revolution, however, new forces came into play--and when capitalism swept from the cities into the countryside, tensions reached the breaking point. From 1830 on, a series of revolts, known as the "Swing, " shook England to its core. Here is the background of that upheaval, from its rise to its fall, and the people who tried to change their world. A masterpiece of British history
Age of extremes : the short twentieth century, 1914-1991 by Eric J Hobsbawm( Book )

147 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On history by E. J Hobsbawm( Book )

39 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few historians have done more to change the way we see the history of modern times than Eric Hobsbawm. From his early books on the Industrial Revolution and European empires, to his magisterial 1995 study of the "short twentieth century," The Age of Extremes, Hobsbawm has become known as one of the finest practitioners of the craft of writing history." "On History brings together for the first time Hobsbawm's most important writings on the study and practice of history, including several essays published here for the first time. Ranging from early considerations of "history from below" and the "progress" of history, to recent speculations on the relevance of the study of history and the responsibility of the historian, On History reflects Hobsbawm's lifelong concern with the relations between past, present, and future." "A monumental testament to the importance of studying history, On History is an essential work from one of our preeminent thinkers."--Jacket
How to change the world : reflections on Marx and Marxism by Eric John Hobsbawm( )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ideas of capitalism's most vigorous and eloquent enemy have been enlightening in every era, the author contends, and our current historical situation of free-market extremes suggests that reading Marx may be more important now than ever. Hobsbawm begins with a consideration of how we should think about Marxism in the post-communist era, observing that the features we most associate with Soviet and related regimes--command economies, intrusive bureaucratic structures, and an economic and political condition of permanent was--are neither derived from Marx's ideas nor unique to socialist states. Further chapters discuss pre-Marxian socialists and Marx's radical break with them, Marx's political milieu, and the influence of his writings on the anti-fascist decades, the Cold War, and the post--Cold War period. Sweeping, provocative, and full of brilliant insights, How to Change the World challenges us to reconsider Marx and reassess his significance in the history of ideas."--Publisher's website
Industry and empire : from 1750 to the present day by Eric J Hobsbawn( Book )

91 editions published between 1968 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,054 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Industry and Empire, Hobsbawm explores the origin and dramatic course of the industrial Revolution over two hundred and fifty years and its influence on social and political institutions. He describes and accounts for Britain's rise as the first industrial power, its decline from domination its special relation with the rest of the world, and the effects of this trajectory on the lives of its ordinary citizens." "This new edition includes a fascinating summary of events of the last twenty years, and an illuminating new conclusion."--Jacket
America : from white settlement to world hegemony by Victor G Kiernan( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 964 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This pioneering study provides unparalleled insight into the history, culture, and politics of American imperialism
Antonio Gramsci by Antonio A Santucci( )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Antonio Gramsci is a giant of Marxian thought and one of the world's greatest cultural critics. Antonio A. Santucci is perhaps the world's preeminent Gramsci scholar. Monthly Review Press is proud to publish, for the first time in English, Santucci's masterful intellectual biography of the great Sardinian scholar and revolutionary. Gramscian terms such as 'civil society' and 'hegemony' are much used in everyday political discourse. Santucci warns us, however, that these words have been appropriated by both radicals and conservatives for contemporary and often self-serving ends that often have nothing to do with Gramsci's purposes in developing them. Rather what we must do, and what Santucci illustrates time and again in his dissection of Gramsci's writings, is absorb Gramsci's methods."--Publisher description

Interesting times : a twentieth-century life by Eric J Hobsbawm( Book )

30 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation Eric Hobsbawm is considered by many to be our greatest living historian. Robert Heilbroner, writing about Hobsbawm's The Age of Extremes 1914-1991 said, "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." Skeptical, endlessly curious, and almost contemporary with the terrible "short century" which is the subject of Age of Extremes, his most widely read book, Hobsbawm has, for eighty-five years, been committed to understanding the "interesting times" through which he has lived. Hitler came to power as Hobsbawm was on his way home from school in Berlin, and the Soviet Union fell while he was giving a seminar in New York. He was a member of the Apostles at King's College, Cambridge, took E.M. Forster to hear Lenny Bruce, and demonstrated with Bertrand Russell against nuclear arms in Trafalgar Square. He translated for Che Guevara in Havana, had Christmas dinner with a Soviet master spy in Budapest and an evening at home with Mahalia Jackson in Chicago. He saw the body of Stalin, started the modern history of banditry and is probably the only Marxist asked to collaborate with the inventor of the Mars bar. Hobsbawm takes us from Britain to the countries and cultures of Europe, to America (which he appreciated first through movies and jazz), to Latin America, Chile, India and the Far East. With Interesting Times, we see the history of the twentieth century through the unforgiving eye of one of its most intensely engaged participants, the incisiveness of whose views we cannot afford to ignore in a world in which history has come to be increasingly forgotten
