New book of British historian Eric Hobsbawm

The flight back from Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur today was delayed for two hours and during that period, I found, to my pleasant surprise, in a book outlet the softcover copy of British historian Eric Hobsbawm's latest collection of short essays titled Globalisation, Democracy and Terrorism (London, Abacus, 2008). The 91-year old Egypt-born Jew has been my favorite Western historian for many years since 1990s.

In memory of my Jewish teacher Herb Feith
