Inhaltsangabe: These 26 essays range over the history of working men and women between the late 18th century and the present day. They include Hobsbawm's pioneering studies in labour history and social protest - the formation of the British working class, labour custom and traditions, the political radicalism of 19th century shoemakers, male and female images in revolutionary movements, the machine-breakers, revolution and sex, peasants and politics, the rules of violence, the common-sense of Tom Paine. There are more recent reflections: on the May Day holiday; the Vietnam War; socialism and the avantgarde; Mario Puzo, the Mafia and the Sicilian bandit Salvatore Guiliano; and the cultural consequences of Christopher Columbus. There are tributes to some of jazz's legendary figures - Count Basie, SidneyBechet and Dike Ellington - anf the tragic blues-singer Billie Holiday.

Rezension: Quite billiant...because he assembles his arguments with knowledge ranging across both countries and centuries, they have a rare potency ( Scotsman)

Eric Hobsbawn has become informally enthroned as Britain's leading historian...ge combines a novelist's narrative power with an unrivalled command of detail and source (Neal Ascherson Observer)

Demonstrating that it is possible to be both erudite and accessible, he turns his attention to the "uncommon people" of the 18th and 19th centuries... [Hobsbawm] provides a brilliant deconstruction of the popular idea that revolution and sexual freedom are intrinsically connected. ( SUNDAY TIMES)

Dump-if you have any- your preconceptions about Marxist history and buy this book. ( OBSERVER)

One of the outstanding historians of our age ( Independent on Sunday)
