Anmeldelser

«A magnificent piece of historical exposition... an essential read.»

INDEPENDENT

«A masterpiece»

GUARDIAN

«A brilliant and stimulating book.»

FINANCIAL TIMES

«The power of Hobsbawm's exploration of the age of hot and cold wars lies in its brilliant synthesis of familiar, though sometimes forgotten, facts and ideas. It combines an Olympian, multi-lingual erudition and an addictive, readable style.»

Ben Pimlott, INDEPENDENT on Sunday Books of The Year
