Eric Hobsbawm dies at 95





I took a year to study for my exams.  I don't think I could have done it without the works of Eric Hobsbawm:

I think our fellow reader, Parsons, was a student of his.

(I love the BBC -- his death is one of their top stories this a.m.)

  1. He lived a long glorious life. I really enjoyed the books I read of his.

  2. I just deleted that "thanks for sharing" post -- it had some weird link tied to it. Seems like we're getting quite a few anons....

    Here's an excellent obituary for Genovese, also gone:
