This is an auction for THE AGE OF REVOLUTION 1789-1848 by E J Hobsbawm.

"The work is challenging, learned, brilliant in its analytical power, wide-ranging in its lucid exposition of literary, aesthetic and scientific achievements and packed with novel insight."
- English Historical Review

"Brilliant."
- Times Literary Supplement

Amazon.com reviews:

"This magisterial volume follows the death of ancient traditions, the triumph of new classes, and the emergence of new technologies, sciences, and ideologies, with vast intellectual daring and aphoristic elegance. Part of Eric Hobsbawm's epic four-volume history of the modern world, along with The Age of Capitalism, The Age of Empire, and The Age of Extremes."

"FIVE STARS!!! The sign of a well-written and well-argued book is that it is one that challenges your world view by making you re-think and review your position. It doesn't matter that it convinces you, it matters that it makes you sharpen your thought process. The Age of Revolution does this well.
Hobsbawm's Age of Revolution (and his entire "Age of..." series) sees Western history in Marxian terms, a distinctly non-American approach. I've been a reader of Hobsbawm since college, disagreeing - often - with his analysis, but always respecting his perspective. Age of Revolutions deals with the era that began with the French Revolution and ends with the revolutions of 1848 (and includes of course the Industrial Revolution). A classic writing of European history."
