Uncommon People – Resistance, Rebellion and Jazz - by Eric Hobsbawm[Reading report] by Guillaume Mompeyssin

2011-10-31

The author was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2011.

Most men and women remain unnoticed in history books. But these people must not be forgotten because they played a major role in history, sometimes as individuals and often as a body. They were shaped by their past and present and shaped the society and human history in return: it is true when studying the working class, peasantry, jazz or more recent movements. This book strives for analyzing their role and for restoring their position in human history.
