Join Richard J Evans at Heffers as he discusses the subject of his latest book, 'Eric Hobsbawm: A Life in History' — the first biography of 'the most famous historian in the world'.

«As well as being famed as a historian, Eric Hobsbawm (1917-2012) had interests covering many countries and many cultures, ranging from poetry to jazz, literature to politics. He experienced life not only as a university teacher but also as a young Communist in the Weimar Republic, a radical student at Cambridge, a political activist, an army conscript, a Soho 'man about town', a Hampstead intellectual, a Cambridge don, an influential journalist, a world traveller, and finally a Grand Old Man of Letters. In A Life in History, Richard Evans tells the story of Hobsbawm as an academic, but also as witness to history itself, and of the twentieth century's major political and intellectual currents.»
