Mutilation and Transformation: Damnatio Memoriae and Roman Imperial Portaiture

Eric R. Varner


the aim of this e-book is to supply a consolidated number of fabrics to facilitate comparability of some of the nationwide human rights associations (NHRIs) already proven within the Asia-Pacific sector, opposed to a historical past of chosen overseas fabrics and with the help of numerous comparative tables. The latter should not meant to be exhaustive, yet are designed to help in deciding upon and contemplating the strengths and weaknesses inherent within the legislative mandates of every nationwide establishment. whereas the gathering is essentially meant for instructing reasons, it's going to even be precious to international locations contemplating constructing a countrywide human rights fee or, for these that have already performed so, strengthening its mandate. therefore, numerous sections were integrated outlining the connection which may still exist among NHRIs, the administrative, the Legislature, the Judiciary and different similar associations and a quick part at the value of the method which should still precede their establishment.

" [This paintings] combines the simplest of 'old school' portrait stories (typologies) with a serious outlook and due attention given to the importance of those photos as historic documents." Andreas Kropp in AWE eight (2009)
