Een jeugd in communistisch Albanië

De internationaal gerenommeerde politicoloog en filosoof Lea Ypi groeide op in communistisch Albanië, destijds een van de meest geïsoleerde landen ter wereld waar communistische idealen de plaats van religie hadden ingenomen.

Various historians explore these and other questions following the publication of Community Urban Health and Environment in the Late Medieval Low Countries, in which Janna Coomans debunks the myth of medieval cities as apathetic towards filth and disease.
