"Citizens" by Simon Schama is available in MP3 format for download from many public libraries. Free. From publisher: "Instead of the dying Old Regime, Schama presents an ebullient country, vital and inventive, infatuated with novelty and technology -- a strikingly fresh view of Louis XVI's France. A New York Times bestseller in hardcover"
