The Phantom Terror. Adam Zamoyski.

Waterstone’s High St Kensington. Nov 12th. 7.00 Start.

Following the outbreak of the French Revolution in 1789, every government in Europe whipped up fear of conspiracy and revolution, using it to extend its powers, limit the freedom of the individual and the press, and make war, all in the name of defending a supposedly threatened social order. Tony Blair and George W. Bush had nothing on the likes of Pitt, Metternich and Tsar Alexander when it came to brazen lies and fabrication of ‘evidence’ in pursuit of their demented vision of state security. Adam Zamoyski unpicks the bizarre skein of genuine fear, self-delusion and opportunism that motivated them.
