E-SPEAIT Reading List
This is not mandatory reading but rather a changing collection of available complementary materials relevant to the course (in the current version, mostly books about legal and philosophical aspects).
Note: over the years, some of the books that used to be available online (legally!) have disappeared for several reasons. Fortunately, there is the Internet Archive which has retained the original copies. A larger facelift for the whole course is planned for Summer 2022, a major update of literature is currently also in compilation.
