What People are Saying About This

Eric Hobsbawm

Of all living sociologists, Charles Tilly is almost certainly the one most respected by historians and political scientists. He always compares, he invariably asks and answers important questions, he knows the past as a historian, and he never forgets that the present and future are rooted in it.
