If human burials were our only window onto the past, what story would they tell? Skeletal injuries constitute the most direct and unambiguous evidence for violence in the past. Whereas weapons or defenses may simply be statements of prestige or status and written sources are characteristically biased and incomplete, human remains offer clear and unequivocal evidence of physical aggression reaching as far back as we have burials to examine. Warfare is often described as ‘senseless’ and as having no place in society. Consequently, its place in social relations and societal change remains obscure. The studies in The Routledge Handbook of the Bioarchaeology of Human Conflict present an overview of the nature and development of human conflict from prehistory to recent times as evidenced by the remains of past people themselves in order to explore the social contexts in which such injuries were inflicted. A broadly chronological approach is taken from prehistory through to recent conflicts, however this book is not simply a catalogue of injuries illustrating weapon development or a narrative detailing ‘progress’ in warfare but rather provides a framework in which to explore both continuity and change based on a range of important themes which hold continuing relevance throughout human development.

The temporal scope extends from Tacitus' mention of dice games to courtly falconry and includes the culture of games among 17th century Swedish miners. The thematic spectrum includes among others dice and board games and the chivalrous septem probitates (seven skills).

Im Zuge der anhaltenden Schuldenkrise bei den Staatsfinanzen einzelner Mitgliedsländer der Europäischen Union rücken Bemühungen über eine Harmonisierung auf dem Gebiet der direkten Steuern wieder in den Fokus der Politik. Es stellt sich die Frage, ob insbesondere ein gemeinsamer Währungsraum auch ohne eine einheitliche Finanz- und Steuerpolitik funktionieren kann. Nach jahrelanger intensiver Vorbereitung zur Verbesserung der Steuerneutralität im Gemeinschaftsgebiet hat die Europäische Kommission am 16. März 2011 den Mitgliedsstaaten einen Vorschlag zu einer gemeinsamen konsolidierten Körperschaftsteuer-Bemessungsgrundlage (GKKB) vorgelegt. Dieser beinhaltet in drei Schritten unter Maßgabe des Quellenprinzips eine einheitliche Bemessungsgrundlage, die anschließende Konsolidierung und die indirekte Formelzerlegung des Gewinns. Durch diese grenzüberschreitende Verrechnung soll eine besonders effiziente Form der steuerlichen Gewinnermittlung in der Europäischen Union geschaffen und die steuerplanerische nachteilige Gestaltung zu einzelnen Mitgliedsstaaten begrenzt werden.
