Paul Kaiser - Drawing on the Past
Kaiser will explore how to use drawing as a means to open up otherwise inaccessible moments of the past -- of private reveries, of abandoned spaces, of live performances long since vanished from the stage. To do so, he will examine a variety of projects and situations, which will include: children as they make a drawing; theater director Robert Wilson as he sketches long-gone productions; the intricate, fleeting, and unrepeatable movement of Merce Cunningham's hands; the oddly haunted afterlife

3.3.2 China

When the medieval Italian traveller, Marco Polo (1254–1324), returned from China, he shocked Europeans with the news that the Chinese used not metal but paper money; indeed, European resistance to representative money based on paper notes stretched into the nineteenth century (de Soto, 2000, p. 222). While China might have had a few centuries away from the global limelight, it is currently staging the biggest economic boom in the history of the planet. In common with Japan, China runs a sub

1 How arguments are used in the Social Sciences

The audio programme used in this unit addresses the issue of how arguments are constructed and used in the social sciences. It uses extracts from a radio programme (originally broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in January 1997) in which the social consequences of welfare provision are discussed from different viewpoints. The programme is organised to allow you to trace how arguments are being put together, assess what sort of assumptions are being made, and examine how forms of evidence are being used

Such payments came in especially handy after US troops inadvertently killed innocent civilians or sheep. Billions of dollars were shoveled out with little or no oversight as part of the Pentagon’s “Money as a Weapon System” progra
