    1. Source: enotes/topics/age-empiIt is one of the great ironies of history that the very period which witnessed the triumph of the European imperial nations (the “Great Powers”) was precisely the same period which saw the growth of those forces that would result in the cataclysm of World War I and its aftermath, with which we yet live. How it was that one society, Europe, came to dominate the world, but could not resolve its own internal contradictions, is the theme of Eric Hobsbawm’s The Age [...]

    2. الجزء الثالث والذي يتحدث عن ما قبل الحرب العالمية الأولى وشكل العالم وقتها والأسباب التي أدت للحرب بعد فترة مستقرة ونهضة علمية وتقدم اقتصادي عاشها العالم الأوروبي في نهاية القرن التاسع عشر وبداية القرن العشرين، أحببت هذا الجزء أكثر من الجزئين السابقة.

    3. Σε αυτό εδώ το βιβλίο ο σπουδαίος ιστορικός μας περιγράφει μία εποχή μεγάλων ανατροπών που ουσιαστικά οδήγησε στη σύγχρονη εποχή. Όλες αυτές τις ανατροπές ο μας τις παρουσιάζει με το γνωστό του διεισδυτικό τρόπο που εστιάζει στα πιο ουσιαστικά πράγματα. Φυσικά η εποχή στη [...]

    4. Wow! I've just finished Hobsbawm's survey of the major historical, political, economic, and cultural developments of the nineteenth century, of which this is the third volume. And let me say, it was well worth it! This is history that engages you, and has something really interesting to say. It doesn't shrink from the unenviable task of saying something bold about a time period that is still contested by its interpreters.I think this was the best of the three volumes (the first covers the French [...]

    5. This was greatw I need to read the two books that come before, "Age of Revolution" and "Age of Capital." I'm doing this all out of order! I think that might be interesting though, to work backwards through the long 19th century rather than forwards.I think the best way to think about this book is to treat it as if you are taking a class with Hobsbawm. You knew he was a Marxist, but hey, so what - agreeing that Marx was on to something with his interpretation of history will not turn you into Tro [...]

    6. This is a long book to read because what he discusses in one paragraph other authors have put into chapters or books. Definitely not a beginner book to the history of the modern ages, but not that far from it.His stance is unapologetically Marxist, but he is not a True Believer. He uses Marx in a descriptive way, rather than in a prescriptive or even predictive way as have far too many utopians have tried to do. In fact, it strikes me that there really isn't much in terms of Marxist analysis tha [...]

    7. This is the most brilliant book on history I have ever read(it's only serious rival would be the Age of Extremes). EJ Hobsbawm's way of explaining, and illustrating historical trends, is enthralling. After finishing each chapter, you feel the weight of the significance of the events just described. As Hobsbawm memorably puts it 'tracing the roots of the present into the soil of the past'. Two extracts from the book, that I believe demonstrate his unique grasp of the significance of historical tr [...]

    8. You would think that even with my pretty large leftward turn in the past 7 or so years I would have become more accommodating to this book which I once loathed in undergrad, but the fact is that my opinion remains the same for even the silly immature me of then was pretty spot on when it came to my criticisms of it (and Hobsbawn in general). His complete lack of understanding of any culture outside of western Europe by his fixation of a doctrinaire and limiting framework of analysis smacks of so [...]

    9. As good as his 'Age of Capital' was, this is even more impressive, perhaps because more happened which can be written about easily. The previous book in the series is a description of the triumph of capitalism and the bourgeoisie, which is fascinating but almost impossible to write about. This one has more in the way of discrete events, which make for better reading, but should be viewed in the context of the earlier book.

    10. This is the third volume of Hobsbawm's thematic history of the long XIXth century: I have not read the two previous ones, but I now intend to. It is also understandably a reference, although one maybe best appreciated by those who already have a sense of the events of the period: the author prefers, against the usual chronological take of those kinds of broad histories, to tackle the following themes in separate chapters: economy, imperialism, the bourgeoisie, the working classes and socialism, [...]

    11. Si tuviese que calificar a los 3 tomos de la Historia del largo siglo XIX de Hobsbawm, definitivamente este estaría en el primer lugar.En este tercer tomo, Hobsbawm logra una gran síntesis entre la descripción de las características y transformaciones propias del período (y su influencia en el siglo XX) y las condiciones materiales que propiciaron estas. No utiliza como herramienta teórica la división artificial (y algo tediosa) de los tomos precedentes sobre las revoluciones y las crisis [...]

    12. It's a privilege to travel through History with Hobsbawm. This book describes a quite short period, but one that shows an acceleration of social transformation like no one before: a brief 40 years that changed the world for ever. It is amazing how Europe walked in into a catastrophe, at the same time as social evolution was peaking, democracy was, at least apparently, becoming of age, and economic globalization was attained. And, at the end, everything together "conspired" to plunge most of the [...]

    13. Eric Hobsbawm’s The Age of Empire is the third in a series that attempts to tell the story of the “long nineteenth century” through a Marxist perspective. As such, he focuses heavily on intellectual and economic developments that occurred during his period of study (1875-1914) and eschews a detailed recapitulation of high politics in favor of an analysis of transformations at the social and cultural levels (which are, albeit, driven ultimately by economic concerns). Each chapter discusses [...]

    14. L'ascesa della borghesia all'impero.Hobsbawm è uno storico con una concezione di sinistra dell'esistenza; apprezzo i suoi scritti perché il suo linguaggio è semplice, eppure potente. Spiega un argomento fino in fondo, senza perdersi eccessivamente in un giro di parole inutili, in paroloni che pochi possono capire. E soprattutto, se dice che per spiegare una cosa ci sono 3 fatti, li elenca in sequenza, a differenza di altri autori che cominciano dal punto uno e non trovi più il secondo punto [...]

    15. Bom panorama de abertura do século XXNeste livro, Hobsbawm consegue mapear o desenvolvimento do imperialismo e suas consequências para as tragédias que abrem o século XX. Dos livros de sua série sobre o século XIX, este deve ser o mais conciso e bem escrito.

    16. El tercer volumen del estudio del "siglo XIX largo". La lucidez y sobriedad de Hobsbawm son, otra vez, la marca de este libro. Me encanta la forma de organización temática que usa en lugar de la típica organización cronológica. La variedad de temas que trata hacen un retrato muy exhaustivo de la época. La perspectiva marxista de Hobsbawm le da un ángulo interesante y progresista a su crítica tanto del capitalismo como del socialismo de la época. Las conclusiones son claras e importantes [...]

    17. Το τρίτο βιβλίο ενός εξαιρετικού τετράτομου έργου («Η εποχή των επαναστάσεων 1789-1848», «Η εποχή του Κεφαλαίου 1848-1875», «Η εποχή των Αυτοκρατοριών 1875-1914», «Η εποχή των Άκρων 1914-1991») που αποτελεί λαμπρή παρακαταθήκη του μαρξιστή διανοούμενου στην παγκόσμια ιστοριογραφία των δυο [...]

    18. A historic trilogy of absolute value. And this third volume is an absolute masterpiece. This is the third chapter of a historical trilogy of the19th century. In fact, the author completed his work with a fourth work, which made him very famous, relating to the 20th century, which he brilliantly nicknamed the "short century". Likewise, we could define the eighteenth century as the "long century". In fact, this century, in the Hobsbawm trilogy, begins with the French Revolution dated 1789 and ends [...]

    19. El mundo burgués generó desarrollos muy importantes para los habitantes de Europa Occidental particularmente; incrementó de manera importante los niveles de vida de una porción significativa de la sociedad, introdujo innovaciones claras en las ciencias, en lo educativo, en el comercio global y en el intercambio entre diferentes culturas. Mejoró la productividad, las comunicaciones, la alimentaciónPero también incorporó consigo tendencias negativas y difíciles que cambiaron para siempre [...]

    20. Since August 1914 we have lived in the world of monstrous wars, upheavals and explosions which Nietzsche prophetically announced. That is what has surrounded the era before 1914 with the retrospective haze of nostalgia, a faintly golden age of order and peace, of unproblematic prospects. Anyone interested in contemporary history should read this book. Anyone interested in knowing how we are where we are should read this book.Anyone interested in knowing why papers today have the same layout of b [...]

    21. It has been a few years since I read "Age of Extremes: The Short Twentieth Century (1914-1991)" and looking around Powell's this summer for a good general European history book on this time period I found a used copy of "The Age of Empire: 1875-1914." I'm so glad I picked this up, and plan to continue in reverse chronological order with "The Age of Capital: 1848-1875" and then "Age of Revolution: Europe 1789-1848." I'm left wondering what 2014 will look like, 100 years after the First World War [...]

    22. Gorgeous, mind-swelling cultural and political history of the Belle Époque in Europe and those fateful years before the Great War. Hobsbawm's range and erudition are staggering and humbling: the sources are translated, by him, from German, French, and Italian (though, surprisingly, not Russian). Some may be initially put off slightly by Hobsbawm's penchant for Marxist terminology, but any fair reader will quickly recognize that she is in the hands of a master, one who writes delicious pose and [...]

    23. Čas imperijastr. 19- in če so se navadni ljudje iz katerega koli dela sveta izselili iz svojih domov kam drugam in tam postali mezdni delavci, s tem pa pripadniki kategorije "revež", jih je bilo po drugi strani nesmiselno označevati s to kategorijo v njihovem rodnem kraju. Str. 28- v "razvitem" svetu pa je zdaj vendarle denar in ne več rojstvo, razlike v pravni svobodi ali stan, določal razdelitev skoraj vseh privilegijev družbene ekskluzivnosti.Str. 36- vsekakor sta bila stara modrost in [...]

    24. I dont think there are many more thought-provoking books than this one. It is the synthesis of so much knowledge, analysis and detail into such a short and cogent book that makes this one of the best books I've ever read. "Age of Extremes" and "Age of Revolution" will often take the plaudits and the attention, mainly thanks to the higher profile of the events covered. However, it is this book, which properly details an evolution of the human race which had far greater ramifications for our socie [...]

    25. Hobsbawm writes impeccably, but I find his perfectly formed sentences turgid in aggregate. Of course, one does not read Hobsbawm for his prose but for his brilliant ideas. His understanding and sympathy for all strata of European society (and this is at heart a European history) are refreshing. Like Braudel, this is an analysis of the effects of economics on civilization rather than a chronicle of political events. It's impressive that the chapter on the origins of the First World War barely men [...]

    26. I'm going backwards through Hobsbawm's history of the world. More explicitly Marxist in its analysis than many of the other works of his I've read, it's an interesting (if rather Eurocentric) tale of the time in which colonial and imperial power just grew and grew, culminating in the First World War and Russian Revolution. And Hobsbawm does a decent job of weaving together economic, social, cultural, and political history into a discrete unit. While it's necessarily going to be light on detail, [...]

    27. An exploration of the social forces that shaped Western society from the Franco-Prussian War until WWI. I'd read Hobsbawms' Age of Extremes about 1914-1991 before, and was unimpressed; but this was a terrific read and an interesting take from a Marxist (not just in the economic sense, but in the historical sense) take on the Gilded Age, or the belle epoque, an age much like our own in which world trade and economic prosperity (despite increasing economic inequality) made war and conflict between [...]
