Most widely held works by E. J Hobsbawm
The age of empire, 1875-1914 by Francis Newton( Book )
66 editions published between 1987 and 2009 in English and held by 2,594 libraries worldwide
The splendid finale to Eric Hobsbawm's study of the nineteenth century, THE AGE OF EMPIRE covers the area of Western Imperialism and examines the forces that swept the world to the outbreak of World War One- and shaped modern society
Bandits by Francis Newton( Book )
80 editions published between 1969 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,687 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
On history by Francis Newton( Book )
54 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 1,361 libraries worldwide
"Few historians have done more to change the way we see the history of modern times than Eric Hobsbawm. From his early books on the Industrial Revolution and European empires, to his magisterial 1995 study of the "short twentieth century," The Age of Extremes, Hobsbawm has become known as one of the finest practitioners of the craft of writing history." "On History brings together for the first time Hobsbawm's most important writings on the study and practice of history, including several essays published here for the first time. Ranging from early considerations of "history from below" and the "progress" of history, to recent speculations on the relevance of the study of history and the responsibility of the historian, On History reflects Hobsbawm's lifelong concern with the relations between past, present, and future." "A monumental testament to the importance of studying history, On History is an essential work from one of our preeminent thinkers."--Jacket
Labouring men; studies in the history of labour by Francis Newton( Book )
45 editions published between 1964 and 2015 in English and held by 1,204 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

The jazz scene by Francis Newton( Book )
49 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in English and Japanese and held by 922 libraries worldwide
Widely praised when it was first published in England, this book sweeps the reader along from the steamy sidewalks of New Orleans to the smoke-filled clubs of New York, an odyssey that along the way discusses the prehistory of jazz, its expansion, its most celebrated musicians, and their instruments. This edition also includes twenty-three pieces that have never appeared in book form - concert reviews, record reviews, and essays from The New Statesman and The New York Review of Books on such legendary jazz figures as Ray Charles, Thelonius Monk, Mahalia Jackson, Duke Ellington, and Count Basie
Historical studies today by Felix Gilbert( Book )
6 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 877 libraries worldwide
On empire : America, war, and global supremacy by Francis Newton( Book )
10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 725 libraries worldwide
With his usual measured and brilliant historical perspective, Eric Hobsbawm traces the rise of American hegemony in the twenty-first century. He examines the state of steadily increasing world disorder in the context of rapidly growing inequalities created by rampant free-market globalization. He makes clear that there is no longer a plural power system of states whose relations are governed by common laws--including those for the conduct of war. He scrutinizes America's policies, particularly its use of the threat of terrorism as an excuse for unilateral deployment of its global power. Finally, he discusses the ways in which the current American hegemony differs from the defunct British Empire in its inception, its ideology, and its effects on nations and individuals. -- Publisher description

6 editions published between 1989 and 2000 in French and held by 201 libraries worldwide
Antonio Gramsci by Antonio A Santucci( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 190 libraries worldwide
"Antonio Gramsci is a giant of Marxian thought and one of the world's greatest cultural critics. Antonio A. Santucci is perhaps the world's preeminent Gramsci scholar. Monthly Review Press is proud to publish, for the first time in English, Santucci's masterful intellectual biography of the great Sardinian scholar and revolutionary. Gramscian terms such as 'civil society' and 'hegemony' are much used in everyday political discourse. Santucci warns us, however, that these words have been appropriated by both radicals and conservatives for contemporary and often self-serving ends that often have nothing to do with Gramsci's purposes in developing them. Rather what we must do, and what Santucci illustrates time and again in his dissection of Gramsci's writings, is absorb Gramsci's methods."--Publisher description
Industry and empire; the making of modern English society, 1750 to the present day by Francis Newton( Book )

"This new edition includes a fascinating summary of events of the last twenty years, and an illuminating new conclusion."--Jacket
