First Sentence
Lines of grey muttering faces, masked with fear, They leave their trenches, going over the top, While time ticks blank and busy on their wrists, And hope, with furtive eyes and grappling fists, Flounders in mud. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
Anyone who is interested in the 20th century history must read this book as the first step towards understanding this age of EXTREMES.If it is the details that attracts you, you can always look for other sources. However, if you make this one your guide-light, it will be much easier to figure out the facts.

Format: Paperback
This book is for the non-academic. His audience is the average person interested in modern history. He eschews the footnotes and scholarly references.

Format: Paperback
It is beyond me how one can write a book called "the age of extremes:1914-1991" without talking of the suffering caused by communism.

for a better book, see Francoit Furet, the passing of an illusion.
In that book Furet (once a communist) analyses people like Hobsbawm. How could intellectuals be so blinded by communism...
