1There are to many footnotes and references for an easy-reading, and to few for academic honors. Well, I consider every of them relevant to be checked. In honors of Rory Miller (King’s College London/ Georgetown University) and his concept of ‘sexy footnotes’: not necessary (these links are within the text) but relevant to know.
