Lecouteux on poltergeists

I haven't been aware of this recent book by Claude Lecouteux, professor at Sorbonne and author of several books on medieval revenants and one on vampires (Histoire des vampires: Autopsie d'un mythe, 1999, also available in a German translation): La maison hantée: Histoire des Poltergeists. It was published by Editions IMAGO in September last year, and is available from various French bookstores on the internet for € 19. I suppose the format and contents are probably similar to those of the book on vampires. It's a shame that so few of his works are available in English.

There is an interview with Lecouteux (in French) here or in audio.
