This book begins Eric Hobsbawm’s Four Ages. In this first book, he covers the time period between 1789 and 1848, giving readers a look into the age which moulded the future through revolutionary movements. He explains his twin revolution thesis, and explains how the situation in the early 19th century is linked to the events of the 1780s and the 1800s. He explains that the world as we know it was shaped by events such as the Industrial Revolution and the French Revolution. He then looks into the results of these events in spheres of life such as land, industrialization, poverty, religion, secularism, science and the arts. The book is an essential read for all students of history.
