  • Die Zensurgeschichte der Türkeiby Nihal Kubilay Pinar

    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 26.79

    Zwischen der Habsburgermonarchie und dem Osmanischen Reich herrschten zeitweise intensive diplomatische Kontakte und Handelsbeziehungen.

  • Zeit und Gottby Georges Tamer

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 196.00

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 95.00

    Islam in the Eastern African Novel offers an idiosyncratic perspective on the sub-Saharan African novel.
