Auburn vs. Clemson (1954)
"The triumph was another team victory for the Plainsmen as they chalked up their fourth win in a row. Hoppy Middleton, with three first half touchdowns, lead the Auburn Tigers to a smashing 27 to 6 decision over Clemson before a Homecoming crowd of 24,000. Although the game was marred by a constant flow of penalties, the Plainsmen left no doubt of their superiority in the minds of Coach Frank Howard's elevens.

Racial Differences in 30-Day Mortality for Pulmonary Embolism

In this podcast, Professor Richard Aldrich from the School of Politics and International Relations, discusses the impact of globalisation, the opportunities this affords to global terrorists and the challenges faced by the intelligence services.

As we see a shift towards a de-regulated glo
International Relations in a Post-Hegemonic Age
The academic study of International Relations has, since since its emergence after World War I, sought to combine the development of theoretical frameworks with an engagement, of greater or lesser immediacy, with the changing course of international events. Empire, World War, Cold War and post-1991 US hegemony have all been objects of its concern. Today, oscillating at times uneasily between the enticements of abstraction, and the rush of actuality, the discipline faces a major opportunity, to p
