    From the southeast coast of South America through an expanse of Peruvian sands en route to the West Coast, then onward through Central American jungles and rainforest, and finally to New York, Tschiffely?s journey was considered impossible and absurd by many newspaper writers in 1925.

  • Stad en staatby Mogens Herman Hansen; Frits Naerebout

    Amsterdam University Press 2006; US$ 11.25

    Polis (meervoud: poleis) is het Oudgriekse woord voor stad, voor staat en voor de combinatie van die twee: een stadstaat. In de Oudheid leefden de meeste Grieken in zo'n stadstaat. De polis als staatsvorm of als type samenleving vormt de grondslag voor de gehele Griekse cultuur. De Griekse cultuur valt alleen te begrijpen als men de polis begrijpt.... more...
