Most widely held works by E. J Hobsbawm
Primitive rebels : studies in archaic forms of social movement in the 19th and 20th centuries by E. J Hobsbawm( Book )
101 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,771 libraries worldwide
Bandits by E. J Hobsbawm( Book )
72 editions published between 1969 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 1,699 libraries worldwide
"Bandits is a study of the social bandit or bandit-rebel - robbers and outlaws who are not regarded by public opinion as simple criminals, but rather as champions of social justice, as avengers or as primitive resistance fighters." "Whether Balkan haiduks, Indian dacoits or Brazilian congaceiros, their spectacular exploits have been celebrated and preserved in story and myth. Some are known only to their own countrymen; others, like Robin Hood, Rob Roy and Jesse James, are famous throughout the world. Setting the historical figures against the ballads, legends and films they have inspired, the author's examples range across the last four hundred years and come from Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia."--Jacket
Labouring men; studies in the history of labour by E. J Hobsbawm( Book )
89 editions published between 1964 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,394 libraries worldwide
The topics covered in this book can be divided into four broad groups: studies of labour conditions up to the middle of the nineteenth century; studies in the 'new trade unionism' of 1889 to 1914; studies in the late nineteenth-century revival of Socialism in Britain; and more general topics covering a wider chronological span. The common factor in this wide-ranging work is that, unlike much other work of labour history, it concentrates on the working classes as such, and on the economic and technical conditions which allowed labour movements to be effective or which prevented their effectiveness. This work is notable not only for its clarity and incisiveness, but also for the richness and variety of the material, which ranges from Marx to Methodism and from labour traditions to the machine breakers
Captain Swing by E. J Hobsbawm( Book )
81 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,377 libraries worldwide
The classic social history of the Great English Agricultural Uprising of 1830, from one of the greatest historians of our age. For generation upon generation, the English farm laborer lived in poverty and degradation. With the onset of the Industrial Revolution, however, new forces came into play'and when capitalism swept from the cities into the countryside, tensions reached the breaking point. From 1830 on, a series of revolts, known as the "Swing," shook England to its core. Here is the background of that upheaval, from its rise to its fall, and the people who tried to change their world. A masterpiece of British history

The Communist manifesto : a modern edition by Karl Marx( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 955 libraries worldwide
The focus of this modern edition is not primarily the vivid history of Marx and Engels' most important work. Rather, with a characteristically acute introduction by historian Eric Hobsbawm, it asserts the pertinence of the Manifesto today. Hobsbawm writes that 'the world described by Marx and Engels in 1848 in passages of dark, laconic eloquence, is recognizably the world we live in 150 years later'. He identifies the insights which underpin the Manifesto's startling contemporary relevance: the recognition of capitalism as a world system capable of marshalling production on a global scale; its devastating impact on all aspects of human existence, work, the family and the distribution of wealth; and the understanding that, far from being a stable, immutable

How to change the world : reflections on Marx and Marxism by E. J Hobsbawm( Book )
25 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and German and held by 464 libraries worldwide
"The ideas of capitalism's most vigorous and eloquent enemy have been enlightening in every era, the author contends, and our current historical situation of free-market extremes suggests that reading Marx may be more important now than ever. Hobsbawm begins with a consideration of how we should think about Marxism in the post-communist era, observing that the features we most associate with Soviet and related regimes--command economies, intrusive bureaucratic structures, and an economic and political condition of permanent was--are neither derived from Marx's ideas nor unique to socialist states. Further chapters discuss pre-Marxian socialists and Marx's radical break with them, Marx's political milieu, and the influence of his writings on the anti-fascist decades, the Cold War, and the post--Cold War period. Sweeping, provocative, and full of brilliant insights, How to Change the World challenges us to reconsider Marx and reassess his significance in the history of ideas."--Publisher's website

Behind the times : the decline and fall of the twentieth-century avant-gardes by E. J Hobsbawm( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 302 libraries worldwide
"That there is a problem about modern art few would deny. Does it, as the art of the past always did, 'express the times', or is it a series of wilful aberrations? Do we have any way of judging its success or failure?" "Bypassing art/criticism and art/theory, Britain's social historian approaches the question from a new angle altogether. It is Professor Hobsbawm's thesis that, unlike writers and composers, who have come to terms with mass/production and the technology of infinite repetition, painters still cling to the unique art/object, the product of the artist's own hands. The result has been a succession of increasingly desperate 'avant/gardes', attempts to find relevance and meaning that - irrespective of the individual artist's talent or even genius - are doomed to failure. Not everyone will accept this analysis, but it is a major contribution to a dilemma of our time, and one which both artists and critics cannot afford to ignore."--Jacket
