The first in Eric Hobsbawm's dazzling trilogy on the history of the nineteenth century. Between 1789 and 1848 the world was transformed both by the French Revolution and also by the Industrial Revolution that originated in Britain. This 'Dual Revolution' created the modern world as we know it. Eric Hobsbawm traces with brilliant analytical clarity the transformation brought about in every sphere of European life by the Dual Revolution - in the conduct of war and diplomacy; in new industrial areas and on the land; among peasantry, bourgeoisie and aristocracy; in methods of government and of revolution; in science, philosophy and religion; in literature and the arts. But above all he sees this as the period when industrial capitalism established the domination over the rest of the world it was to hold for a century. Eric Hobsbawm's enthralling and original account is an impassioned but objective history of the most significant sixty years in the history of Europe.

The Age of Revolution is the first of four works by Eric Hobsbawm that collectively synthesize the ideas he developed over a lifetime spent studying the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Hobsbawm's vision is important - he was a lifelong Marxist whose view of history was shaped by a fascination with social and economic history, yet who privileged evidence over political theory - but the real power of these works, and especially The Age of Revolution, emanates from the wide range of the author's reading and his mastery of the critical thinking skill of evaluation. It is this skill that allows Hobsbawm to combine insights drawn from decades of reading into an original thesis that sees the crucial "long 19th century" as a period shaped by "dual revolution" - the twin impacts of the Industrial Revolution in Britain, and the French Revolution on the continent. Hobsbawm supplemented his evaluative excellence with a firm grasp of reasoning, crafting a volume that contains brilliant, clearly-structured arguments which explain complicated ideas via well-chosen examples in ways that make his work accessible to intelligent general readers and scholars alike.

The years between the American Revolution of 1776, the French Revolution of 1789 and the European Revolutions of 1848 saw fundamental shifts from autocracy to emerging democracy. It is a vital period in what may be termed 'modernity': that is of the western societies that are increasingly industrial, capitalist and liberal democratic. Unsurprisingly, these years of stress and transition produced some significant reflections on politics and society. This indispensable introductory text considers how a cluster of key thinkers viewed the global political upheavals and social changes of their time, covering the work of: • Edmund Burke * Georg Hegel • Thomas Paine * Alexis de Tocqueville • Jeremy Bentham * Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels Lively and approachable, it is essential reading for anyone with an interest in modern history, political history or political thought.

English summary: Whereas most studies see Dante Gabriel Rossetti's oeuvre as the work of a 'failed Romantic' (Stephen J. Spector) or at least a 'diminished Romantic' (David G. Riede), the present study challenges this conventional scholarly wisdom by taking a fresh look on his poems and lesser-known prose works as well as his paintings. His works are analysed against the backdrop of an often neglected but influential counter-current to the Victorian mainstream, namely Romantic Disillusionism in the line of Lord Byron. It is shown that the defining structure of Rossetti's works is the oscillation between affirmation and negation, i.e. he evokes traditional (romantic) symbols and themes, only to unmask them as wishful thinking. He emerges as an artist who wanted to hold on to the Neoplatonic and holistic world view of the Romantic poets like Coleridge, Wordsworth or Keats before him but could no longer do so because he found himself at the centre of an ever increasing vortex of doubt concerning metaphysical truths that gripped the second half of the 19th century. The study focuses on four major aspects that rehabilitate Rossetti artistically as well as intellectually: his Pyrrhonist view on the conditio humana, his inversion of the ideal of Neoplatonic and Dantesque love, his non-teleological view on history and politics, and finally his ars poetica that grappled with the question of the poet's role in a post-metaphysical world. German description: Felix Forster eroffnet mit diesem Band neue Perspektiven auf das Werk Dante Gabriel Rossettis und leistet einen wichtigen Beitrag zu dessen Rehabilitierung. Seine Analyse zeigt insbesondere auf, wie bedeutend die bewusste Invertierung der tradierten Symbole und Themen fur Rossettis literarisches Werk ist. Der optimistische Zukunftsglaube seiner Zeitgenossen wird als Illusion entlarvt und die holistische Weltsicht der positiven Romantiker wie S. T. Coleridge, W. Wordsworth oder auch J. Keats hinterfragt. Das Oszillieren zwischen Affirmation und Negation, d. h. zwischen dem Glauben-Wollen und dem Nicht-mehr-glauben-Konnen, wird dabei als standige Auseinandersetzung mit dem sukzessiven Sinn- und Transzendenzverlust des 19. Jahrhunderts aufgefasst.

"This superb collection of essays brings together the most exciting new work in cultural and literary history. Although the authors focus on the various cultural revolutions of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, the significance of their investigations extends far beyond that moment. They show how the major categories of modern social life took root in this era, but they emphasize the surprising and often paradoxical ways those developments took place. Nothing about the experience of class, gender, race, nation, sentiment or even death was pre-ordained. These essays will enable readers to take a fresh new look at the origins of modernity."Lynn Hunt, editor of The New Cultural History and coeditor of Beyond the Cultural Turn "This is a valuable and provocative set of essays. Differing markedly in subject matter, they are linked by their intelligence and concern to re-assess early modern English and French histories, and the differences conventionally drawn between them, in the light of current work on language, class, race and gender."Linda Colley, author of Britons: Forging the Nation, 1707-1837 "

»Wissenschaftliche Revolution«, das meint die Durchsetzung neuer Formen von Erkenntnisansprüchen, Theorien und experimentellen Praktiken an der Schwelle zur Neuzeit: nicht nur die Herausbildung einer mathematisierten Physik, die lange Zeit als das Paradigma der neuzeitlichen Wissenschaft galt, sondern auch das Aufkommen neuartiger Wissenschaftsprogramme, Techniken der Beobachtung und der kontrollierbaren Herstellung von Phänomenen auf den verschiedensten Wissensgebieten. Steven Shapins Buch ist eine materialreiche, überaus prägnante Darstellung dieses keineswegs plötzlichen, revolutionären Umbruchs, die insbesondere die gesellschaftlichen Kontexte der »neuen Wissenschaft« beleuchtet und eine ausgezeichnete Einführung in dieses facettenreiche Thema bietet. Sie liefert einen hervorragenden Überblick, der durch einen ausführlichen »bibliographischen Essay« – ein Leitfaden durch die Literatur – noch an Wert gewinnt.

Der Westen – seit dem Zeitalter der Entdeckungen ist er gleichsam das welthistorische Maß aller Dinge. Er hat fremde Reiche erobert und ganze Kontinente unterworfen, die Erde bis in ihre entlegensten Winkel erschlossen, die Naturwissenschaften und die moderne Technik hervorgebracht, die Menschen- und Bürgerrechte, die Herrschaft des Rechts und die Demokratie erfunden. Aber er hat auch oft genug seine Werte verraten, Freiheit gepredigt und Habgier gemeint und mit dem Kapitalismus eine Ökonomisierung aller Lebensverhältnisse entfesselt, die bis heute die Menschheit in Atem hält. In einem grandiosen Panorama erzählt Heinrich August Winkler zum erstenmal überhaupt die Geschichte des Westens – und damit auch die Geschichte unserer eigenen Identität. „Eine Geschichte der westlichen Welt, wie sie hier präsentiert wird, gab es bislang nicht.“ Volker Ullrich, Deutschlandfunk „Dem Berliner Historiker ist mit der ‚Geschichte des Westens’ ein unzeitgemäßes Meisterwerk gelungen.“ Jürgen Osterhammel, Rheinischer Merkur

A magisterial account of the rise of capitalism Eric Hobsbawm's magnificent treatment of the crucial years 1848-1875 is a penetrating analysis of the rise of capitalism and the consolidation of bourgeois culture. In the 1860s a new word entered the economic and political vocabulary of the world: 'capitalism'. The global triumph of capitalism is the major theme of history in the decades after 1848. The extension of capitalist economy to four corners of the globe, the mounting concentration of wealth, the migration of men, the domination of Europe and European culture made the third quarter of the nineteenth century a watershed. This is a history not only of Europe but of the world. Eric Hobsbawm's intention is not to summarise facts, but to draw facts together into a historical synthesis, to 'make sense of' the period, and to trace the roots of the present world back to it. He integrates economics with political and intellectual developments in this objective yet original account of revolution and the failure of revolution, of the cycles of boom and slump that characterise capitalist economies, of the victims and victors of the bourgeois ethos.
