From the Publisher:

"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

From the Back Cover:

"Its sheer power and eloquence will make this book a classic." -- Neal, Ascherson, Sunday Observer (London)

In this third volume of his four-volume history of the modern world, as it has been produced by the development and expansion of the West, Eric Hobsbawm combines vast erudition with a graceful prose style to re-create the epoch that laid the basis for the twentieth century. "Though written by a professional historian," Hobsbawm writes of his own work, "[it] is addressed not to other academics, but to all who wish to understand the world and who believe history is important for this purpose."

"It is Mr. Hobsbawm's achievement both to have captured the exuberance of an age, and to have shown how and why that world was coming to an end .... He not only captures the age of empire he also illuminates the course of the twentieth century." -- Paul Kennedy, The Economist (London)

"A virtuoso performance.... Few, if any, present practitioners of the historian's craft can equal. the astonishing range and dazzling erudition of Mr. Hobsbawm's scholarship." -- David M. Kennedy, 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." -- James Joll, The New York Review of Books
