By Eric J. Hobsbawm
“Este es un libro –nos cube Eric Hobsbawm- sobre lo que les sucedió al arte y a l. a. cultura de los angeles sociedad burguesa una vez esta sociedad desapareció, en los angeles generación posterior a 1914”. Su destrucción se produjo como consecuencia de los efectos combinados de los angeles revolución en l. a. ciencia y l. a. tecnología, del desarrollo de los angeles sociedad de consumo y de los angeles entrada de las masas en los angeles escena política. Unas sociedades inmersas en los angeles constante presencia de nueva información y de nueva producción cultural –de sonidos, imágenes, palabras y símbolos- han visto transformarse el modo de aprehender los angeles realidad, pero también su concepción de los angeles cultura, que estaba asociada a las convenciones que gobiernan l. a. relaciones humanas. Este libro, el último que dejó escrito Hobsbawm, es una gran aportación a los angeles historia de los angeles cultura del siglo XX, como lo señala el profesor Richard Evans: “Leyendo este libro he aprendido una enorme cantidad de cosas que antes no sabía”. Pero es también una reflexión sobre un presente convulso, un tiempo de incertidumbre en que, nos cube Hobsbawm, miramos hacia adelante con perplejidad, sin guías que orienten nuestro camino hacia un futuro irreconocible.
