    Refinements of first-order asymptotic results are reviewed, with a number of Ph.D. projects supervised by van Zwet serving as stepping stones. Berry-Esseen bounds and Edgeworth expansions are discussed for $R$-, $L$- and $U$-statistics. After these special classes, the question of a general second-order theory for asymptotically normal statistics is addressed. As a final topic, empirical Edgeworth expansions are considered.
