    1. I should have flipped through this more but was in a hurry and it was on sale, so I picked it up. I can only blame myself for what I got. The book is a collection of essays, reviews and other prior works by the author. I was under the impression from the index that this book would give new or interesting insights into the topics listed, but was greatly disappointed. Most of these essays read like reference papers citing other works and showing his knowledge, but doing little for the reader.The l [...]


    2. ‘Uncommon People’ has taken me a long time and not a little effort to get through. There is no strong thread linking all the chapters, although they are grouped by broad themes. However, the switch from one theme to another is not signposted in the text, as it is in the contents page. This results in some disorienting shifts, for example from a potted biography of a Cold War fixer to the history of jazz. Moreover, it resulted in my levels of interest varying markedly according to what Hobsba [...]


    3. Scelta molto discutibile La scelta di fare a pezzi il testo principale e ricostruirlo con brani scelti (che per lo più parlano di socialismo) è mera operazione commerciale, molto discutibile e davvero molto poco onorevole. Ad ogni modo, ben pochi sono i testi qui contenuti che sono degni d'essere letti. Il primo che colpisce è una lungua disquisizione sui significati del lavoro in Gran Bretagna (e il sindacalismo), nel quale il traduttore ha l'arduo compito di sottrarre alla perdita di signif [...]


    4. Having found some of his lengthier books a tad difficult to follow I found this book to have some perspicatious insights, particularly in Labour history and peasant revolutionism (his introduction to Marx's Per-Capitalist Formations is noted as a classic, so I guess this is not surprising. His defence of Jazz against some recent Marxist criticismes (e.g. that of Adorno) was interesting, and probably deserves to be read with Dyer's In Defense of Disco. Would definitely be a welcome guest at any i [...]


    5. Uncommon People is a collection of Eric Hobsbawm’s essays spanning the majority of his long career, from the 1950s to the mid-1990s. It brings together a wide range of topics, collected under four headings: The Radical Tradition, Country People, Contemporary History and Jazz.Under “The Radical Tradition”, there are essays addressing Thomas Paine, the Luddites, the radicalism of shoemakers, the difference between labour traditions in France and Britain, the development of a distinctive work [...]


    6. I have clearly mixed feelings about this book. While looking at the table of contents in a second hand book store I somehow missed that is was a collection of essays, rather old essays at that. At first I found this a positive as it made it very easy to read as bedtime reading - no need to remember a plot or various characters - but as I encountered topics that I was more interested in (revolution and jazz specifically) I found the short easy format a little disappointing. I wanted more! I reall [...]


    7. Interesting collection of essays, well-researched and written. Some are sparkling, others more pedantic--four stars for the essay on why shoemakers were often political thinkers and leaders. Three and a half stars for the book overall.
