O título não é muito exato, o livro é mais sobre como Marx mudou o mundo. Muito interessante, no entanto. ( )

You can't fail to be impressed with Hobsbawms reach, or the breadth of his learning. However this collection has the same problem as anything Hosbawm writes "post-1917". His analysis is fatally compromised by his attempts to justify the twists and turns of Soviet foreign policy and the, at times, slavish devotion to the party line. ( )

I normally say of Hobsbawm "he's a great man but…" But you have to take his communism as part of the package. But you must understand how he was shaped by the 1930s before you can appreciate him. I cannot be so even-handed with the airbrushing of atrocity in How to Change the World. The "but" is too big. It overshadows all the good in him
