The Marx Memorial Lecture: An Enduring Passion: Eric Hobsbawm and Karl Marx, a talk by Gregory Ellio

This year's Marx memorial lecture focuses on the work of Eric Hobsbawn

Historian Eric Hobsbawm is possibly the foremost chronicler of the modern age. His panoramic studies of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, stretching from the French Revolution to the fall of Soviet communism, have informed the historical consciousness of scholars and general readers alike. At the same time, his writings on labour movements and socialist politics have occupied a central place in left-wing debates and his is career is intimately bound up with the name and intellectual and political legacy, of Karl Marx.
In this talk Gregory Elliott, author of 'Hobsbawm: History and Politics' (Pluto Press, 2010) analyses both the scholarly record of Hobsbawm and the intellectual and political journey that his life represents.
