The Age of Empire

E. J. Hobsbawm

Part of Hobsbawm’s magnus oprus on the history of Europe. Focusing in largely on economic facets he delivers an effective survey with some good identification of main socio-political structures. The work does sufferr from being somewhat dated and being a bit plodding in style, but overall retains its force as a major piece of systemic history.
