First of all I would like to thank, once again, the Rector of NIAS for his gracious hospitality during the Academic Year 2007 – 2008. During that year I finished my book Zoon en Vader / Vader en Zoon, that was published by Bert Bakker, Amsterdam in March 2008. I also wrote a number of articles that are now in the press and continued my work on the book “Scheffer-Renan-Psichari”.
