    1 thought on “The Age of Revolution, 1789-1848

    1. Εξαιρετικός ο Hobsbawm. Ειδικά για κάποιον που δεν έχει σπουδάσει ιστορία, μαθαίνει πολλά. Μια πολύ καλή περιληπτική εικόνα της εποχής 1789-1848, της Γαλλικής και της Βιομηχανικής επανάστασης, των πολέμων, της ειρήνης, της εκβιομηχάνισης, των γραμμάτων, των τεχνών, της κοινωνικής πρ [...]

    2. Having read this first in 2011, I decided to read it again. I've learned a fair bit about the period since then, and so better appreciate the virtues and limits of this volume. It contains a great deal of condensed analysis - hence it is rich, but often dry. It is also very British -- not only in its writing, but in its focus and biases. For all his Marxism, Hobsbawm was very much a bourgeois Brit. There is also the business of Hobsbawm's defense of Stalinism. This is a very interesting clip - a [...]

    3. The preface/introduction explicitly says that it's going to be a Eurocentric book focusing on France and Britain. Which is fair enough, although the title is a little dishonest - he only has limited space to cover an era of massive change and even though it's very disappointing not to see much about the rest of the world it's not surprising and at least it covers some stuff more in depth.However, there's no excuse for stuff like this:"There is much to be said for the enlightened and systematic d [...]

    4. This book is, I'm sure, an informative introduction to the interesting period between the first and second French Revolutions. But it reads like a lecture, which is to say, it goes for narrative at the expense of detail. The narrative is an interesting one, and Hobsbawm is evidently jumping-up-and-down thrilled to be sharing it with us, but I had hoped to learn more specifics.For instance, there is a section on the arts in which the author asserts that artists of the early 18th century were typi [...]

    5. Άλλη μία από τις αναγνωστικές παραλείψεις μου αυτό εδώ το βιβλίο. Ήθελα, βέβαια, να το διαβάσω αλλά λίγο δίσταζα φοβούμενος μήπως πρόκειται για κάτι "βαρύ" που απευθύνεται περισσότερο σε ειδικούς. Τελικά αφού το διάβασα διαπίστωσα ότι αν και δεν είναι ένα συμβατικό ιστορικό [...]

    6. The gods and kings of the past were powerless before the businessmen and steam-engines of the present.Hobsbawm's survey of these twin explosions (French revolution, Industrial revolution) is a much more melodious affair than I had imagined. The material is addressed in an almost symphonic manner: capitalism and its counterpoint. The teetering aristocracy sees France go bankrupt defending our wee American democracy. The involvement of moderates is crucial as they alone weren't burdened with the l [...]

    7. I was referring to a few chapters of this tonight for something else when I remembered how excellent Hobsbawm really was. His writing is profound and precise. His biases are pronounced, but his method is still so valuable that most of social history today follows after him.

    8. A veces la única forma de asimilar todo cuanto sucede o todo cuanto haya sucedido en el mundo sólo se puede dar cuando lo vemos plasmado “blanco sobre negro”, es decir, sobre un papel donde una sabia pluma actúa como guía y es solamente entonces cuando lo procesamos y asimilamos en toda su dimensión. Sin duda para mí este ha sido el caso al leer este libro. El análisis que hace Eric Hobsbawm acerca de la génesis y consecuencias que trajo consigo la “doble revolución”, refiriénd [...]

    9. This three part series by Eric Hobsbawm is indispensable for understanding the modern world. After having read these three books, and this one in particular, I see my former self as so innocent and provincial. How could I have gone through life without understanding the industrial revolution and its interplay with the French Revolution, or European reaction, or the Napoleonic wars, or the revolutions throughout the first part of the 19th century, or the onset of imperialism, or how all of those [...]

    10. En este libro, Hobsbawm, hace un muy letrado análisis y contextualización del período 1789-1848. El nacimiento de la Modernidad, del Estado Nación Moderno, del intercambio internacional -como lo conocemos hoy, aunque a pequeña escala-, de las instituciones burguesas de reglamentación y sistematización, etc.Este libro no cuenta con una narración cronológica de los hechos, sino con una disgregación de las materias a analizar para hacerlas más simples. En su primera parte, de las causas [...]

    11. Although it is nearly 50 years since this was first published it remains one of the superb histories of the modern age, tracing social, economic, political, cultural and economic developments and influences of the Industrial and French Revolutions – that is, the making of the bourgeois world. Hobsbawm's grasp of the big picture is rigorous and allows the reader to both grasp the broad patterns and trends, as well as much of the detail. The book's Eurocentrism is consistent with its time, altho [...]

    12. I've done the last two volumes of Hobsbawm's tetralogy, and figured I'd start at the beginning, when, arguably, Hobsbawm was at his most Marxist. An excellent introduction of how we got from the ideas of 17th Century England and 18th Century France to the revolutionary fervor of the early 19th Century (which, too often, was more fervor than actual revolutionary thought), and how we became an industrialized species. While Hobsbawm has his missteps (as any interpolator of history will), it's still [...]

    13. الكتاب يتكلم عن الثورة الفرنسية ومعاصرتها الثورة الصناعية البريطانية والظروف التي أدت لهما وشكل أوروبا في ذلك العصر لفهم الظروف السياسية والاجتماعية والثقافية والاقتصادية التي أدت إلى الثورة وتأثيرها على أوروبا بشكل خاص وعلى الدول الأخرى الخاضعة للتأثيرات الأوروبية وتل [...]

    14. E.J. Hobsbawm argues that the French Revolution and the British Industrial Revolution transformed the world in unprecedented ways. This “Dual Revolution,” argues Hobsbawm, established the parameters for European hegemony. The socio-economic structure of Europe in 1848 looked completely different from that of 1789. Although they followed different trajectories, bourgeois liberalism lay at the heart of both.To begin with, Britain was the first country in the world to industrialize, in part bec [...]

    15. This book was both challenging and very interesting, not only because it deals with an immensely dense and troublesome era, but because of the way it is dealt with: in an structured manner and with the sensible rigorousness only a great historian like E. Hobsbawn is able to achieve.You should know upfront that this is not an easy book, mainly because it is about things that are definitely not easy, but especially because writing history is not an easy thing. Listing facts is easy, but working ou [...]

    16. هذا كتاب لا غناء لمضطلع بمعرفة لحظة التحول الخطيرة في تاريخ البشرية، تلك التي سلمت مشعل الحضارة ومقادة التاريخ الأمة الأوروبية إلى وقتنا، وتلتها فيما بعد تغيرات اجتماعية عامة في الجغرافيا والسكان وفي الفكر والفن والعلوم وكاتبه هو المؤرخ اليهودي الشهير إريك هوبزباوم الذي [...]

    17. As a product of the public education system, this book unquestionably cleaned my clock. The preconditions of the modern world are laid out, configured, and reconfigured with such precision, clarity, and ocassional flare that I could actually feel my brain humming like the filament in the Bright Idea Bulb. Thank you, Mr. Hobsbawm

    18. A brisk canter through the fifty year period that shunted in the railway age of slum tenements and industrial over-production. The narrative is not too overburdened with facts (each chapter is supported by footnotes), just the odd reassuring stylistic idiosyncrasy.

    19. The Age of Revolution achieves that rare combination of both sweeping scope and coherent argument. Tackling the tumult of 1789 to 1848 in Europe, Hobsbawm somehow manages to summarize the transformative political, social, and economic forces that swept the continent while not losing sight of his original argument: the French and Industrial Revolutions, “the Dual Revolutions” as he calls them, metamorphosed European society, and their repercussions in turn created the modern world. Critics re [...]

    20. This book was a great primer when I started University (back so long ago), and was on the recommended reading list for my Social History course I took. Being so young, naive and not that educated all those years ago, I barely understood it, and at least I never really that much got to grips with his narrative literal method of writing history; chronological accounts were all I had ever really read up to that particular time. Chronological History gives you at least a timeframe to work around; da [...]

    21. عصر الثوره للمؤلف إريك هوبزباوم و له ايضا عصر الامبراطوريه و عصر رأس المال و عصر التطرف هذه المؤلفات يقول عنا المختصون بأنها إحدى الانجازات الكبرى في مجال المؤلفات التاريخيهقسم المؤلف الكتاب الى قسمينالقسم الاول (التطورات) و يندرج تحته الفصول التاليه1- العالم في ثمانينيات ا [...]

    22. يقول المؤلف "إن عالم الفكر يتمتع بالاستقلال إلى حد ما، وهو يتحرك على طول الموجة التاريخية نفسها التي تتحرك بها المؤثرات في الخارج، غير أنه ليس مجرد أصداء لها"، وهذا منهج الكتاب في تقصي الأحداث. أستطاع المؤلف بسرد شيق ومسهب توثيق مراحل الثورة في فرنسا وإلى العوامل التي أفضت إل [...]

    23. أول جزء في الرباعية التاريخية لإريك هوبزباوم.المؤلف قدر بسرد شيق وممفصل انه يوثق مراحل الثورة في فرنسا بدايةً بالعوامل التي أدت لحدوثها في 1789 ولحد عصر الانفجار الثوري في اوربا سنة 1848 و اللي حصل في الوقت ده من صراعات بين طرفين النزاع مريدي الجمهورية والملكية وكمان المحافظين [...]

    24. Como escrever um livro de história! Com as definições e mapas, com limitações assumidas, mas com os factos, referidos e analisados, tentando mostra-los a todos e dando uma ideia do estudo feito. É um livro de divulgação que não trata o leitor como um imbecil ou cai no erro de ser pretensioso.

    25. All must read this.Append: No way one can begin to understand the modern world unless one has read Hobsbawn.

    26. A couple of weeks ago I dropped the phrase "British Historical Entertainment Complex" into conversation. I thought it was quite clever and, like most of the things I say that I think are quite clever, it was met with a slight smile and a "very good Jim, you've been saving that one for a while haven't you? You great tosser." nod. I was making a reference to the "Right Wing Media Entertainment Complex" line that some bright spark thought up in the wake of the 2012 US presidential election to expla [...]

    27. يتناول المؤرخ و المفكر اليساري أريك هوبزباوم هنا تاريخ أوروبا في الفترة التي حدث فيها الحدث الأبرز في المسار الأوروبي وهو الثورة الفرنسية ، و يرصد الكاتب بصورة مادية كل العوامل التي أدت إليها و التي تمخضت عنها و يتحدث عن الكولونيالية و الصراع الإقتصادي المحتدم بين الانجليز [...]

    28. The first of Eric Hobsbawm's marvelous trilogy on modern Europe. A truly pervasive sweep of the period between the French Revolution and the Revolutions of 1848 in which traditional hierarchies were overthrown, an unprecedented process of industrialization, modernization, and secularization had begun, and Europe found itself running into the treadmill that is the developed modern estate. What is most brilliant about Hobsbawm's take on the period is how he is able to provide such a broad sweep of [...]
