Eric Hobsbawm

Interview on the new Century

Hay Festival 2000, 
In the Predictions Lecture, looking at the medium term future of history, Hobsbawm analyses the crisis of the mulit-ethnic Nation State and the resurgence of nationalisims. He examines globalisation, the triumph of the free market, and our relationship to the environment. 'For sheer intelligence, Hobsbawm has no superior'. (The Guardian)
