Inhaltsangabe: The Nineteenth Century is the topic of this book, with the French Revolution and the earlier American Revolution forming the axis which produced the new class of the liberal bourgeoisie. The author shows how this new class rose, succeeded and eventually fell.
"A virtuoso performance...Few, if any, present practitioners of the historian's craft can equal the astonishing range and dazzling craft of Mr. Hobsbawm's scholarship." --The New York Times Book Review
"A splendid answer to those critics who complain that academic historians no longer write readable prose...The great strength of this book is the way in which what seems in so many ways a wholly vanished epoch is related to our situation today."--The New York Review of Books
