Richard J Evans

An Age of Extremes

Eric Hobsbawm spent his life investigating the trends and changes shaping our world. Now, one of his colleagues has written a study of the man and his ideas. In A Life in History, fellow historian Richard J Evans reveals Hobsbawm the thinker and person: the passionate fan of jazz and poetry; the young radical in Weimar Germany who became a Cambridge don. Evans discusses the scholar who forged our understanding of the modern world.
