Our most talented living historian,
This review is from: On History (Paperback)
Eric Hobsbawm, now well into his 80s, continues to write excellent history. On History is a series of essays and lectures which attempt to give students of history a philosophical and theoretical basis with which to continue their studies.
He looks at concepts such as progress and history, economics and history, Marxism and history, and History from Below. Anyone studying the subject now owes a great debt to Eric Hobsbawm, and every student should read this book.
