It is with sadness that we learn of his death. BLCKDGRD sez:
His Age of Tetrology (Revolution, Capital, Empire, Extremes) heavily influences my reading of the world. Here's an article from 1977. Here is a book review he wrote on the Hungarian Revolution. Here's Eagleton on Hobsbawm. Here are all Hobsbawm's pieces in NYRB.I do have a few notes intended as a review of Hobsbawm's final book. At some point - though probably not until I have some more vacation time coming - I'd like to sit down and share a few thoughts about it.
