Body: 

Hitler came to power when Eric Hobsbawm was on his way home from school in Berlin, and the Soviet Union fell while he was giving a seminar in New York.He translated Che Guevara in Havana, had Christmas dinner with a Soviet master spy in Budapest and an evening at home with Mahalia Jackson in Chicago.

He takes us from Britain to the countries and cultures of Europe,to the USA, to Latin America,Chile, India and the Far East,and round the dead universe of what was known to its adherents as " really existing socialism."
