Some political criticism to Hobsbawm don't seem to obscure his work as
Historian. In his last book (result of an interview in Italy) he defends the
Analitic History, saying that the History isn't just to discover. It's also to
analyse. Some sociologist certainly don´t like of the Hobsbawm's opinion. No
surprise, some historian also don´t like it because they prefer the Traditional
History. Hobsbawm doesn´t deny his marxist inpiration. Maybe some criticism to
he aren´t just.   Ivonaldo Leite
