    Soft Skull Press 2011; US$ 12.95

  • Blickwendungenby Carsten Morsch

    Erich Schmidt Verlag 2011; US$ 46.31

    Augenzeugenschaft wird meist mit der Unmittelbarkeit eines Geschehens verbunden. Wie jede Wahrnehmung ist sie freilich zugleich Widerfahrnis und Konstruktion.

Ziel der Untersuchung ist es, Blickwendungen in mittelalterlichen Texten... more...

    Black & White Publishing 2009; US$ 2.17

    The rivalry between Cardiff and Swansea is one of the fiercest there is anywhere.
