About the Author:

Eric Hobsbawm was born in 1917. Educated in Vienna, Berlin, London and Cambridge, he became a Fellow of the British Academy and has been showered with academic honours from around the world. He taught until retirement at Birkbeck College, University of London, and since then at the New School for Social Research in New York. His many books have been translated into several languages.

Review:

A masterly survey of the major economic developments and changes of the last two hundred years, sharply and ironically observed, and elegantly written. -- Guardian

An original and masterly reinterpretation of Western economic (not to speak of social and political) history, [from] by far the most gifted economic historian now writing. -- The Listener
