Norman Cantor examines the ideas and personalities that have shaped twentieth century scholarly thought about the Middle Ages. The audiobook format offers convenience rather than heightened impact with abstract material such as this. Frederick Davidson has a clear, pleasant voice and handles the author’s often convoluted constructions by phrasing them well. Occasionally one wishes there had been time for a retake or to smooth out the pronunciation of a foreign term. But, on balance, this is a highly usable presentation, a good offering where such specialized material is of interest. J.N. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 95]
