    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 133.00

    Researchers have long debated which role the aristocracy played in society, politics and the economy during the 19th century.

The collected essays in this volume show that the Italian and German aristocracy definitely succeeded in preserving... more...

    Saqi 2012; US$ 24.78

    In 2011, Arab youth took to the streets in their thousands to demand their freedom.
