Thread Name: Obit: Eric J Hobsbawm (1917-2012)
Subject: RE: Obit: E J Hobsbawm
Eric Hobsbawn was one of our greatest historians alongside, I would say, Christopher Hill, R H Tawney and Chrisopher Hibbert. He was immensely prolific and his books were always on my son's reading list when doing his degree. I love his 'Uncommon People' which sums up the eclecticism.
