The Age of Revolution


1789-1848




Between 1789 and 1848 two vast upheavals - one originating in England, the other in France - catapulted the world into modernity. No one has documented the dual impact of the Industrial and French Revolutions more thoroughly or insightfully than Eric Hobsbawm in this magisterial work, the commencing volume of his epic four-volume history of the making of the modern world.



More than a chronicle of momentou events, "The Age of Revolution" is a brilliant and often radically unexpected interpretation of phenomena we now take for granted: the transformation of peasants into industrial laborers; the replacement of omnipotent monarchs by a triumphant middle class; the birth of new sciences, technologies, and ideologies; the shock waves that rippled outward from Europe to America, Asia, and Africa. Written with clarity and aphoristic elegance, "The Age of Revolution" is a landmark work thar is indispensable to any understanding of the world in which we live now.
