Customer Review

on 3 February 2003
The most compelling statement Hobsbawm makes is his call for historians to defend history from abuse and misuse. The comment that "the world will not get better on its own" is a typical comment for an eminent left-historian.
His writing style will be familiar to readers of his previous books. His autobiography, for me, was perhaps telling his political development in the course of the 'Short Twentieth Century' and how and why his views and those around him changed.
The book looks very much towards the future while still talking about the past. A truly masterful autobiograhpy worthy of reading.
