Caspar ten Dam (MA political science) has been building a significant publication record in recent years; multiple articles, book chapters and other manuscripts have been published, or will be published, in peer-reviewed journals, other journals and (academic) books, including books of his own as the sole or main author. The publication list shown below can also be found in the extensive and detailed version of my CV (see webpage ‘Curriculum Vitae, or directly see CVAcEngCDam2015). This list only shows, next to pending major book publications, publications that already have appeared; the list will be regularly updated with additional publications, that are as of now still pending, or in the planning and writing stages.
