Leading article: The spirit of cricket

A report by Loughborough University researchers that teaching cricket in state schools improves children's behaviour, spreading chivalrous and "gentlemanly" behaviour over one and all, raises possibilities. Deprived state schools, after all, are not the only arenas in which problematic behaviour – the type the researchers link to football – rears its ugly head. Many of us encounter barging, loud, testosterone-loaded, winner-takes-all behaviour – what we will refer to as "football" values – on buses, at Tube and railway stations and checkouts.

Surrey 403 Nottinghamshire 218 & 46-2: Brainless leaders left in a spin by Mushtaq

Professor Denis Cosgrove: Cultural and historical geographer

Denis Cosgrove was widely viewed as the pre-eminent cultural and historical geographer of his generation. He was a polymath reminiscent of the Renaissance humanists he admired, and his innovative and sparkling studies immeasurably deepened understanding of how changing Western perceptions have viewed, interpreted and transformed the world around them. His gifted teaching and dedicated supervision, no less than his dozen books and scores of essays, inspired colleagues and students throughout the humanities and the natural and social sciences, well beyond his chosen discipline. Indeed, interdisciplinarity was for him an article of faith.
