Stolac, the city of departure for this publication and the location the place the writer performed fieldwork, is found within the south-western nook of Bosnia Herzegovina.

This was once the one who affected the population of Stolac the main. prior to the struggle, ethnic id in Bosnia Herzegovina used to be just one id between others, and ethnic modifications have been embedded in daily practices. this day, ethnic distinction is all there's.

Il commento puntuale di Machiavelli alla narrazione liviana: tre libri che pongono l'accento su origine, organizzazione e decadenza della grande repubblica romana, e di ogni repubblica, intesa come ordinamento capace di armonizzare le tendenze e gli interessi particolaristici. Così, sotto los angeles veste di un commento a Livio, viene articolandosi una visione del mondo coerente, che pur illustrando in termini inconsueti il nesso fra società, storia e natura, rifugge da astratte speculazioni filosofiche a favore della pratica politica. Seguendo l'esempio della repubblica romana il politico potrà con i suoi comportamenti rallentare l'ineluttabile decadenza, costituendo una repubblica virtuosa e resistente agli attacchi di pace e nemici.
