At its height, the British Empire was the largest empire in history and the most influential global power. Originating with a few overseas possessions and trading posts, it grew to encompass dominions, colonies and protectorates rule and administrated by the United Kingdom. In 1922 the Empire covered almost a quarter of the world's total land area; by the end of the century it had diminished to just a few overseas territories. During this contraction, " Empire " became a highly provocative term. Its history of war, conquest and appropriation is difficult, even painful, to address but its legacy is everywhere: not just in public monuments, but in social structures, culture and in the fault lines of contemporary global politics.

Two women are holding a man down on a bed. One presses her fist against his head, so he can’t raise it from the mattress, while her companion pins his torso in place. They are well-built with powerful arms but even so it takes their combined strength to keep their victim immobilised as one of them cuts through his throat with a sword. Blood spurts from deep red geysers as she saws. Her victim’s eyes are wide open. He knows exactly what is happening to him.

Family doctors are better placed than other professions to see what is wrong with all parts of healthcare and better placed to recognise the value of collaborative solutions. Most of the world came to recognise this as long ago as 1978 at the Alma Ata consensus conference and Starfield has demonstrated it in her comparison of healthcare systems – high quality, cost – efficient healthcare needs to have broad – visioned primary care at its heart.

Some 130 years after the death of the “most popular German painter”, the Leopold Museum is presenting the first exhibition on the artist Carl Spitzweg (1808–1885), whose oeuvre is commonly seen as closely allied to the Biedermeier period and the definitions of tranquility, petit bourgeois idylls and philistinism associated with it.
