    Luca Bertolini stelt in zijn oratie dat het leven in een mobiele samenleving beleidsmakers met bijzondere dilemma's confronteert.

De productie en consumptie... more...

  • Das Labyrinthischeby Jan Pieper

    Springer 2009; US$ 49.95

  • Piazza San Marcoby Iain Fenlon

    Profile Books 2010; US$ 11.98

Here a different story is told... more...
