Why Historian Eric Hobsbawm Never Gave Up On Communism
"He was born in 1917, after all. He was a 20th century man. Mass political movements are one thing that defines the 20th century. ... History had made him a communist and he was going to stay that way. Hobsbawm didn't try to be wiser than his own times. He didn't believe he could out-think the 20th century." The Smart Set 10/09/12
