This was great...now 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 int...more

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.

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...more

Véritablement synthétique et instructif.

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...more

Čas imperija

str. 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 stari...more

Brilliant as its predecessors. Hobsbawm seems to get better closer to the end of the 'long 19th century' he gets. Outlines the rise of imperialism, the bourgeoisie and the revolutionary movements of the early 20th century, but goes far beyond political history. Great stuff.
Manuel J.
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...more

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...more

This was an informative read providing the final installment of Hobsbawm's trilogy concerning the long 19th century, defined as 1789 to 1914. This volume, concerning the period from the 1870s to 1914 was more interesting in many ways than the preceding sections in that it effectively traced the origins of much of the world as it was to be known throughout the 20th century as well as laying bare the emerging fissures that were to bring the end of the belle epoque.

Hobsbawm's stance on Socialism made me wonder how the book would have been different if it had been written in 1990 instead of 1988, or even today, given the capitalism of the world's largest communist nation-state. Nevertheless, I was able to accept his argument that the age of empire, with its creation of the nation-state and division of the world to serve the capitalist interests of these nation-states, radically changed human history.

Jun 20, 2007 Justino marked it as to-read  ·  review of another edition
excellent analysis: this is an excellent multifaceted analysis of the long 19th century that is so significant not only to european but to world history. flowing freely between critical political, economic, and cultural analysis, hobsbawm clearly connects the complex developments of the period and enlightens the reader on their significance. a must read for anyone studying european and world history.
Odhran
Another excellent thematic history in the series. This one is much better on stuff like feminist struggle, although the crass economism of orthodox-ish Marxism comes out a few times. Marxists can be really bad at feminism sometimes. Obviously the major events of the First World War and the Russian Revolution dominate this book - probably more the latter, which isn't too surprising.
Patrick Bair
Another excellent chapter(s) in Hobsbawm's epic work. About the period ending in 1914, the mother of all cliffhangers.

Who else could write a world history with such a large scope in the illuminating language?! Of course it's not without problem (he cannot get East Asia right...) but can you imagine one author absorbs this amount of information and processes it for us?? Just impressive. I like this volume better than the next one.
Samer Kallas
مؤرخ عالمي من النخب اﻷول، ومحلل موضوعي شمولي، يعيد بناء الصورة التاريخية بكافة جوانبها وظروفها وأسبابها، ابتداء من الثورة المزدوجة (الثورة الصناعية والثورة الفرنسية 1789) وحتى نهاية القرن العشرين. عبر مؤلفات أربعة ضخمة: عصر الثورة، عصر رأس المال، عصر الامبراطورية، عصر التطرفات. كتاب ممتع لمحبي التاريخ
Sara Willis
Well written and extremely informative. Hobsbawm is great about arranging his information in a way that presents history, not as a linear deterministic sequence, but as happenings and influences that are the warp and woof which creates a giant texture. It is his job to interpret this texture.
Simon
Hobsbawm knows how to capture and convey the essence of an era.
Stuart
Only made it as far as page 10:

"It was the era when massive organized movements of
the class of wage-workers created by, and characteristic
of, industrial capitalism suddenly emerged and demanded
the over throw of capitalism."

Right.
Sam Reaves
Hobsbawm casts a jaundiced eye at the high point of nineteenth century capitalism, when European powers scrambled to lay claim to the less advanced parts of the globe. This was the first era of globalization, and it ended in tears.
Corey
thoroughly analyzed, sometimes too much to the point of tedium, but generally intelligent. Insights in to the foundations of the 20th century and why it was so radical.
Julia
If you're up for a great deal of dense history, this is the book. I really enjoyed all three volumes of Hobsbawm's history of the world. Thank you, Mark Bixby.
Bob Peru
this series gets more and more interesting here in the third (of 4) volumes. marxist history at it's most eloquent.
Peter
Hobsbawm continues to wrestle with the 19th, and comes out more-or-less on top.
Honore
Extremely revealing look at this historical period’s events and their significance.
Tom
A bit too general for my tastes but still does its job of summarizing the age.
Jbondandrews
It was quite an informative read. Reasonably well written.
Dan
I didn't make it all the way to the end. I just gave up.
Leandro Guimarães Faria Corcete DUTRA
A nice summary, but way too to the left.
