The series Il Secondo Libro collects texts dealing with anthropological-social researches dedicated to a wider audience than the usual researcher.
Edizioni La Linea, thanks to the experience of two anthropologists, published books that can spread anthropology to simple readers who do not deal with it in an academic level.
First pubblication dates back to 2010, La soluzione del codice Maya by Michael D. Coe, focused on the history of deciphering Mayan hieroglyphics. In collaboration with the University of Bologna, Edizioni La Linea organized workshops in Bologna dedicated to the basics of deciphering Mayan hieroglyphic writing.
The most recent public work is La forza dell’ordine by Didier Fassin, a very current and interesting anthropological investigation on the interaction between population and law enforcement in the Parisian suburbs.
