My Curriculum Vitae.

Apparently, my current lifetime Hirsch-index score is 21.

I am present on academia, ssrn and facebook.

Here is a set of—by now pretty old—photographs from Budapest.

Almost all of my recent work is archived online. This includes an e-book, numerous papers in English, Magyar and Belorusian, interviews in Hungarian and Danish dailies, the transcript of a 45-minute television interview in Magyar, plus some commentaries in English, Magyar and Albanian. To read them, click on this paragraph.

Online Syllabi of Courses that Use My Work
(These courses are listed, more or less, in the reverse order in which I have come to know about them.
The links worked at the time I found them; if a flink fails, it means the course syllabus has since been taken off the web.)
