The wall manifested a level... more...

    The "lessons of history" cannot be reduced to some specious argument that knowledge of the past provides a privileged insight into the present.

  • Inclusion Mattersby World Bank

    World Bank Publications 2013; US$ 19.99

    Social inclusion is on the agenda of governments, policymakers, and nonstate actors around the world.
