Recommended Books and Articles

With Recommended Books and Articles, the project intends to bring together a virtual library of those books and articles which are specific for the topic of the project and are of recent date. For the time being, titles which are mostly books, will be presented in alphabetical order. In the next stage, such titles will be classified according to subject categories, in order to make them more easily available.
