  • This text examines the contexts in which classical statuary was made and displayed, and restores its former cultural significance. It explains the techniques of the manufacture of Greek sculpture, and traces its production from the 8th century BC to the Hellenistic period.

For example, the worldwide consumption of fish between 1990 and 1997 increased by 30% while the capture fisheries increased only by 9%.

  • Henning Eichberg’s publications are many and varied: ‘brilliant and prolific’, according to the influential American sports historian, Allen Guttmann (1988, p. 209). His longest (and some would say his most significant) works have been published in German and Danish (Eichberg 1973, 1978, 1988; Eichberg and Jespersen 1985), and it is mainly in the form of articles that his work has appeared in English. Some of these papers are readily accessible; others are scattered in journals and somewhat obscure collections and conference proceedings across a very wide disciplinary spectrum.

  • Today’s society is fascinated by crime. Crime and deviance have taken on a cultural significance they never previously had. As a result, crime is a hot topic in the media and one that leads people to be continually exposed to criminal events, portrayals of those who commit them, and the suffering of victims. Most of the crime we experience, we experience vicariously. But the bias in crime reporting is such that it is easy to get the wrong idea about the reality of crime.

Sometimes we are not able to move forward, getting immersed in the sadness and pain of our loss. Fortunately, there are people who are trained to help those who get stuck on their journey from loss....

  • Biodiversity forms patterns not just across space, but also across time. New species emerge, old ones become extinct; rates of diversification speed up and slow down. These long-term patterns in evolution get their start in the generation-to- generation processes of natural selection, genetic drift, and reproductive isolation. When a lineage of organisms evolves over a few million years, these processes can potentially produce a wide range of patterns (see ). Natural selec- tion may produce a significant change in a trait such as body size, for example.

  • British people have seen a sample of US public broadcasting that has been so bad that it features as a snippet in humorous mainstream programmes. With the exception of the handful of RSLs the impression of the majority of British people is that community based television is so dire that no one will watch it and it has no value. In contrast to the UK, Germany has a significantly better track record, and local stations in the USA do actually form part of a comprehensive service.

With the help of this empirical material, we can identify the social practices and mechanisms through which the social positions of these figures were supported and their differences legitimized.
