M. Cioli, M. Ricciardi, P. Schiera (eds), Traces of Modernism: Art and Politics from the First World War To Totalitarian

Between Futurism and Anthropophagy. Transculturation and Postcolonialism


Published: Jan 01, 2019 by M. Cioli, M. Ricciardi, P. Schiera (eds), Traces of Modernism: Art and Politics from the First World War To Totalitarian

Individual Sovereignty: From Kelsen to the Increase in the Sources of the Law


Published: May 17, 2017 by Langford P., Bryan I., McGarry J. (eds) Kelsenian Legal Science and the Nature of Law. Law and Philosophy Library, vol 1
Authors: Tedesco, Francescomaria
