Eric Hobsbawm traces with brilliant clarity the transformation brought about in every sphere of European life by the Dual Revolution — the 1789 French Revolution and the Industrial Revolution that originated in Britain.
This enthralling and original account highlights the significant sixty years when industrial capitalism established itself in Western Europe and when Europe secured the domination over the rest of the world it was to hold for a century.
