Excellent historic analysis
An excellent work of historical analysis to round off the series on the long 19th century. Hobsbawn takes on numerous themes, labour, capital, diplomacy, arts, women, science etc and applies his wonderful historical analysis and lively writing style to them. If you have read and enjoyed the previous 2 books then this is essential reading.

Badly let down by machine like oration
I’m sure there’s a good book here somewhere. But if the narrator is bored, and sounds it sadly, so am I.
