    Epub Bridge of Words PDF Ä Bridge of PDF/EPUB or ´ franzbielmeier.de bridge book, words kindle, Bridge of pdf, Bridge of Words EpubThis book is both a history of the Esperanto movement and personal experiences of the author meeting other Esperantists I'm really glad this book exists and I was able to read it but at the same time I felt disappointed by how boring the history chapters were Passionate infighting was lost in a tangle of acronyms often given with their English translation so they didn't make sense and dry prose I'm no stranger to research on schisms within special interest groups like Mormon history I know it was probably really difficult for Schor to do the research when every source probably had a bias one way or another At the same time there weren't very many in line citations so it's hard for other researchers to verify her facts Reading the history chapters felt like so many of the books I read for work containing vital details for referencing an encyclopedia article bu
