Uncommon People: Resistance, Rebellion and Jazz

Uncommon People: Resistance, Rebellion and Jazz


Highlighting Eric Hobsbawm's passionate difficulty for the lives and struggles of standard women and men, Uncommon People brings again into print his vintage works on exertions historical past, operating humans, and social protest, pairing them with more moderen, formerly unpublished items on every little thing from the villainy of Roy Cohen to the genius of count number Basie, Duke Ellington, and Billie Holliday. Uncommon People bargains either an exhilarating creation for the uninitiated in addition to a broad-ranging retrospective of the paintings of "the best-known residing historian on this planet" (The occasions, London).
