Hobsbawm is an interesting guy. He's been called, somewhat fairly, a Stalinist apologist for downplaying and "contextualising" certain things. If it's any indication, he was one of the founding figures of Past & Present, an extremely important historical journal still today, and of its founding members (all communists) I think he was the only one, or one of the only ones at least, who didn't repudiate his card-carrying status after 1956 / 1968. This was amid waves and waves of intellectuals and particularly historians repudiating their party allegiance, sort of defining moments of disillusionment for those generations. tldr: He is definitely a card-carrier.
His long ninteenth century trilogy is well-regarded by pretty much everybody. They are great survey textbooks. It's mostly his twentieth century stuff that is sometimes called revisionist or pinko sympathetic.
