Both the work and the life of Leo S. Klejn, Russia’s foremost archaeological theorist, remain generally unrecognized by Western scholars. Until now. In this biography and summary of his work, Stephen Leach outlines Klejn’s wide-ranging theoretical contributions on the place and nature of archaeology. The book details-Klejn’s diverse work on ethnogenesis, migration, Homeric studies, pagan Slavic religion, homosexuality, and the history of archaeology;-his life challenges as a Russian Jewish scholar, jailed for homosexuality by the KGB and for his challenges to Marxist dogma;-his key contributions to theoretical archaeology and, in particular, Klejn’s comparisons between archaeologists and forensic scientists.

Mickey Franklin was shot dead in his shower on a Saturday evening. Before long, his girlfriend - Sarah Longmore - was in custody. She had a gun and a key, and a witness placed her at the scene. Plus, she'd recently discovered that Mickey was screwing her sister: hardly a locked-room mystery, then, on the face of things. 'Andrew says you're a lawyer who does other things... Finds people, witnesses, things like that' Truth be told, Jack Irish hasn't found much of late. Unless you count the joys of Schubert and home cooking as discoveries, that is. So, when he is asked to take a look into Sarah Longmore's defence, he's more than happy to oblige. After all, it shouldn't take much time and effort: if she seems that guilty, the chances are that she probably is. However, Sarah's case will prove to be far from straightforward, and Jack's investigation far from quick and painless. The fourth book in the Jack Irish series, White Dog has all the elements - wit, supple prose, gripping action and laconic dialogue - that have made Peter Temple one of the world's premier crime writers.

Cultural issues are somtimes powerful and sensitive that they command unreflected loyalty from members of the group. The use of physical punishment in Igboland appears to be one of such cultural sensitivities. The author provides the framework for understanding the way Igbo people think about certain held beliefs especially in the context of childrearing practices, given that most people act out of convictions even when they are not able to rationally explain their actions. Thus, the personal history, personality style, the ability to nurture and assist the child's developmental progress, the beliefs, convictions and the psychology of parents and caregivers have bearing more or less on the phenomenon of physical child abuse. The book underscores that the dominant social philosophy, the egalitarian or non-egalitarian nature, the competitiveness, the social policies, the world view and the social construction or definition of childhood and child abuse existent in a society – all must be taken into consideration. It seeks to serve as a response to the lack of comprehensive ethnographic and anthropological reflection on the connection between the structure of Igbo family and the phenomenon of physical child abuse. The author unpacks several cultural taboos placing them in anthropological perspectives for a better understanding of Igbo entrenched cultural practices.
