Age of Revolution by Eric Hobsbawm

Book Description

Eric Hobsbawm traces with brilliant anlytical clarity the transformation brought about in evry sphere of European life by the Dual revolution - the 1789 French revolution and the Industrial Revolution that originated in Britain. This enthralling and original account highlights the significant sixty years when industrial capitalism established itself in Western Europe and when Europe established the domination over the rest of the world it was to hold for half a century.

UK Kirkus Review » Almost forty years after its first appearance, Hobsbawm's study of the two generations between the French Revolution and the mass uprisings of the mid 19th century remains the best account of European life in this formative period. Written with verve and full of incisive judgements, the book surveys the political upheavals which spawned democratic government, the demographic growth and industrial revolutions which gave rise to international capitalist economies, and the developments in religion and science, literature and the arts which heralded the modern world. This is the work of a great historian at the height of his powers and is a must for anyone interested in the history of Europe. (Kirkus UK)
