If you are interested in political developments in Europe during the period covered from the perspective within Culture and the minds and words of that time this book is utterly essential.
Narration by Gildart Jackson is certainly a great service to the book itself and intensely stimulating to the brain!
The hearing sense is far more precise and nuanced than reading by eye can ever be.

Every now and then a book comes along that sheds light on much that had been familiar yet unfocused, thereby bringing a new and exhilarating understanding to a wide range of subjects. Phantom Terror is just such a book. It is invaluable for everyone interested in 19th century history, literature and culture, or in history in general.
Gildart Jackson is excellent (despite mispronunciations of foreign words, though it should be said that he generally has a fair idea of how words in French and German sound; French names can indeed be difficult to get right unless one happens to know or does the research).
Most regrettably, this book appears to be unavailable to Canadian and European customers. I do not see whom this publishing restriction can benefit.
