From his early books on the Industrial Revolution and European empires, to his magnificent study of the short twentieth century, The Age of Extremes, Hobsbawm has come to be known as one of the finest practitioners of his craft. On History brings together his most important essays on the study and practice of history. Ranging from early considerations of history from below and the progress of history, to recent debate on the relevance of studying the past, On History is an essential work from one of our preeminent thinkers.'--from the publisher.
