Originally published as Social Bandits and Primitive Rebels, Eric Hobsbawm's 1959 study of social agitation is presented here with a new introduction by Owen Jones that shows how Hobsbawm was decades ahead of his time. Also the author of The Age of Revolution and The Age of Extremes, Hobsbawm explores models of rebellion from Robin Hood and revolutionary peasants to pre-industrial mobs, Spanish Civil War anarchists, and Mafia societies, all of which inform our modern notions of dissent. His analysis offers critical insight into such movements as Black Lives Matter and the growing international resistance to the Trump presidency.
