for my folklore and nationalism class. really interesting, although sometimes hobsbawm's own ideology gets in the way. excepting the bits where he says something is obvious (it isn't, always, and that's an invitation for the reader to disagree), it's well-thought-out and easy to read. good background material for nationalism studies.
