BOOKS is a literature platform for a number of titles that have contributed to the vision and the development of SEN. Some of the selected titles below were not published recently. Yet SEN has chosen to give these books the acknowledgement we believe they deserve, precisely because their impact and value has endured over the years - making them into timeless works

These titles may interest you and we aim to continuously develop this section together with others. Do you have titles from a perspective or field of interest that aligns with what we envision to bring with SEN?

Please feel welcome to CONTACT US and provide a short basis for a book review. We are thankful to consider your suggestion.
