    1 thought on “عصر التطرفات

    1. So that rounds off Hobsbawm's tetralogy on the 19th and 20th centuries. 2000-odd pages of sustained historical brilliance that have changed the way I comprehend the world. In the absence of gods (and our inability to step outside of history to view it objectively) the nearest that we can come to a god's eye view is human genius. Hobsbawm is undoubtedly such a genius, as evidenced by the universal praise this series has received from writers across the political spectrum. "I continue to believe t [...]

    2. If the twentieth century was short, he was nevertheless full well, even too full. Hobsbawm divides into three periods: the era of disasters, 1914-1945, the world to fire and sword; the golden age, the war boom that seem increasingly distant and miraculous; the debacle which led to the fall of communism but never the victory of capitalism. The historian observes the political, economic, cultural, scientific or demographic in the world. His observations, numerous and sometimes outside the box, try [...]

    3. History can be written in different ways. Barbara Tuchman, for example, chooses a theme (The Proud Tower) or a person (A Distant Mirror) around which to tell of the times. School textbooks simply follow a timeline, a guarantee not only of boredom but that the reader will learn next to nothing. Eric Hobsbawm writes with the intent of a comprehensive understanding of the times. His technique is to look upon history as a jewel of many facets, each of which is worth viewing and all of which are nece [...]

    4. I remember, a long time ago I read this when it was first published in 1994 - I was a social history student at Swansea Uni - and my lecturer told me this book was a 'departure for Hobsbawm'. I never quite or fully understood what she meant back all those years ago. My second re-read, and I still do not understand what she really meant, although being older and allegedly more wiser, I still fail to fully grasp her meaning. However, what I think she meant was Eric Hobsbawms stance on Soviet Russi [...]

    5. Ao terminar (finalmente) a série "Modern Series" do Hobsbawm (Era das Revoluções, do Capital, dos Impérios e o Breve Século XX) sinto que, realmente, consegui abstrair um pouco da história contemporânea (e basicamente "eurocêntrica") que iniciou com a Revolução Francesa (1789) mas que, por enquanto, não findou, muito contribuindo para minha concepção de realidade histórica e meu entendimento da atualidade que me cerca. Este último livro é, com certeza, o menor porém o mais ousad [...]

    6. Usually the only people tackling long general histories are conservatives. The Marxists are too busy arguing over minutiae to lend their worldview to great spans of time. So Hobsbawm offers something that was definitely missing. Even though I knew most of the events of which he spoke, he offers sort of grandfatherly perspective to what the hell happened over the last 100 years, and makes the young solipsistic leftist like me feel better, not so cast adrift in history. As long as it's not conserv [...]

    7. Di una chiarezza, bellezza, precisione e schiettezza senza precedenti. Questa "resa dei conti con il 900" mi ha fatto venire voglia di leggere il più possibile di questo autore. Spero di rimediare asap.

    8. The Age of Extremes: A History of the World 1914-1991 takes as its subject matter what its author, Eric J. Hobsbawm, calls "the short twentieth century," ranging from the start of World War One to the breakup of the Soviet Union.An avowed communist in his sympathies, Hobsbawm nonetheless writes a remarkably balanced history of his times, with interesting sidelights on the art and science of the century. In general, I prefer Tony Judt's Postwar for some of the same period, though I like Hobsbawm' [...]

    9. Contro: è lungo e peso; è un gigabignami del '900 e quindi molte questioni sono nominate in fretta e poco approfondite.Pro: è un volo di ampio respiro su tutta la storia del '900 ed è quindi uno strumento prezioso per comprendere in un unico ragionamento storico il secolo nella sua complessità; non fa sconti agli errori della politica e della società, offrendo un punto di vista molto critico soprattutto sugli avvenimenti del dopoguerra, dal boom degli anni '50-'60 alle contestazioni del '6 [...]

    10. It is fortunate that Hobsbawm wrote this book as early as 1994, when the “fall of Communism” still appeared to be a world-shattering event, because, more than anything else, this is what he documents. I doubt that any historian, writing a “grand synthesis” of contemporary history today, would place so much emphasis on that event. It probably helps that Hobsbawm was himself a Marxist historian who had supported the USSR during its most “extreme” period – that of the leadership of Jo [...]

    11. I found this book extremely difficult to read.Hobsbawm was born in Egypt to Viennese parents who spoke English in the home, and his syntax seems to have been permanently ruined by the experience. For example, what are we to make of this sentance? For if divorce, illegitimate, births and the rise of the single-parent (i.e. overwhelmingly the single-mother) household indicated a crisis in the relation between the sexes, the rise of a specific, and extraordinarily powerful youth culture indicated a [...]

    12. I'm not giving this book a rating for a couple of reasons: I didn't read the whole lot, and it wasn't what I was hoping for.I was hoping for a book to give me a good overview of the bits of the 20th century I need to teach my yr11 course. It didn't do that; not that much on WW1, and little on the early part of the Cold War, although some interesting and useful comments on both. It said nothing about the suffragette movement, which was disappointing, although I guess it didn't fit into his theme [...]

    13. A great appendix to Hobsbawm's history of the long nineteenth century (French Revolution to WWI), and a pretty decent place to start for 20th century history I would say. No complaints. And i'm a real complainer.

    14. A Not-So-Short (Tendentious) History of the Short Twentieth CenturyHistoriography has come a long way since the age of positivism, when it was conceived as the practice of collating historical "facts" and letting them "speak for themselves", of telling history "as it happened," to paraphrase empiricist Leopold von Ranke. The purview of the historian's profession has now expanded to encompass the pursuit and articulation of a deeper analysis and explication of the meaning of historical facts read [...]

    15. Not a history bookHosbawm's "The Age Of Extremes" is, best described as "A collection of Marxist Thesis on the 20th Century" than a history book. Perhaps an even better title is "A collection of Hosbawm's highly biased comment on a few 20th century historical facts". Over the course of its roughly 400-500 pages, Hosbawm does his best make the non-communist (read: capitalist) nations look like complete monsters. He is, of course, right in that the capitalist nations often commited attrocities and [...]

    16. Après un long dix-neuvième siècle en trois volumes, un court XXème en un volume. J'ai bien apprécié le découpage par thématiques plutôt qu'une simple chronologie, mais ces différents chapitres sont de qualité inégale.

    17. The first time I read this, I was a fussy new grad student, given to pick on anything. On second reading, this book simply amazes me. Bedtime reading for the kids.

    18. Saggio monumentale, giustamente celebre, che cerca ua sintesi (quasi impossibile) del secolo più veloce e sconvolgente della storia dell'umanità: mai i cambiamenti sono stati tanti e tanto radicali nonché - più o meno - globalmente diffusi in tutto il mondo. Diventa impossibile per noi contemporanei (tutti noi, che una fetta del secolo appena passato lo abbiamo necessariamente vissuto) dare un quadro coerente a tempi che abbiamo visto direttamente o di cui abbiamo avuto notizie di seconda ma [...]

    19. Hobsbawm is a very interesting writer. I thoroughly enjoyed large parts of his political and military chapters, I may not agree with all of his points but they were interesting nontheless. It was fascinating to read the thoughts and ideas of a well-read marxist historian on the century he lived through. But some of his passages on art, science and social issues (particularly those pertaining to homosexuality) were troubling and bordering on reactionary. Especially passages such as this one about [...]

    20. La lotta di classe come lotta tra chi ha classe (Hobsbawm) e chi no. Possente, onesta e utilissima opera, molto pi� citata e criticata che letta. Mettiamo qualche punto fermo. Hobsbawm scrive questo ponderoso saggio, citando il debito che ha verso un collega (I. Berendt) sul concetto, attribuendo a lui la paternit� di "secolo breve", gi� nell'introduzione. Poi nello sviluppo - mutuato dalla tecnica del conferenziere onesto che premette sinteticamente cosa dir�, lo dice e poi riassume con [...]

    21. I started at the end, chronologically speaking with this addendum to Eric Hobsbawm's much admired "Age of" sequence. The book by its nature is more than just historical analysis, with personal observation and reflection informing its analysis.On its own terms it is an excellent book for gaining an understanding of cause and effect in the twentieth century. It is not a narrative and those less familiar with the events would be better with Martin Gilbert or John Roberts' efforts. Hobsbawm certainl [...]

    22. The Age of Extremes, which covers most of 20th century American and European international politics, is a good read for any one interested in knowing at an intermediate level why things happened the way they did in Euro-US politics. The 20th century is marked by 4 extremely important events: World Wars, the Cold War, and the fall of Berlin wall. Most of the contemporary world politics is a result of these events. I approached this book to get a slightly better and academic view of the events men [...]

    23. I read this with a ton of hope: I heard this guy was a british national treasure and one of the most famous living historians. But the only thing I took from the book was his (I think accurate) theory that the 20th century was "short" and could be described as the period between the start of WWI and the end of the cold war. The rest of it was pretty forgettable. I think he's one of those historians that only makes sense if you've already spent a lifetime reading history and know the landscape pr [...]

    24. It seems as if Hobsbawm was too confused or dishonest about the goals and accomplishments of communism to give it to us straight in chapter 2. It's possible that's because he was an old man. But it seems he'd had a lifetime to consider communism and hadn't quite strayed from the idea that world-wide revolution was still the answer. I'm not interested in muddled thinking, or diplomacy at gunpoint and his meandering analysis would have snapped my already broken bag of books even further.

    25. عصر نهایت ها اریک هابسبام تاریخ جهان 1914 تا 1991 ترجمه‌ حسن مرتضوی

    26. Fantastičan pregled povijesti "kratkog" 20. stoljeća, sa sociološkom analizom. Ova me knjiga, baš kao i njegove druge knjige, nije nimalo razočarala.

    27. Well, as I don´t like them totalitarian ideas, this history book by a Communist was not very appetising. Some parts are rather disgusting.

    28. This book's only rival(known to me)in historical writing, is the previous tome of the series: The Age of Empire. Hobsbawm sets himself the task, of explaining why history took the course it did. His chapters on : The breakdown of patterns of social expectation, the retreat of economic and political liberalism, and the transformation of the arts in the 20th century, are superb. The same encomium should be extended to his prologue: The bird's eye view, and his epilogue, were many of the events hap [...]

    29. çeviri dolayısıyla okumakta zorlansam da oldukça doyurucu bir kitaptı. başlığın kısalığına bakmayın sekiz yüz civarında sayfa boyunca felaket okuyorsunuz. zaten yüzyılın ilk yarısı dünya savaşları, ikinci yarısı da soğuk savaş dönemi olduğundan yazarın iyi bir şeye değinme şansı pek yok. yine de her bölüme konulmuş sanat kısmı arada siyasetten ve ekonomiden başka hareketler de olduğunu görmenize yarıyor. planlı programlı yazılmış akademik bir kita [...]

    30. The Age of Extremes ranks high on my list of favorite histories. Remarkable in its capacity to reveal the relationships between seemingly disparate events and spaces - who if not Hobsbawm to encompass nearly-the-whole of the 20th century
