The church in early Irish society by Kathleen Hughes( Book )

35 editions published between 1966 and 2019 in English and held by 1,136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This gives an account of the problems which arose when the organization of the Christian church, imported from the urban bureaucracy of the Roman Empire, had to be adapted to the heroic society of early Ireland. How was church government in Ireland brought into line with the secular law, and were the changes made without protest? These questions are traced from early legal texts from the sixth century onwards, and show the gradual process of modification which culminated in the eighth century, when the church, now fully adjusted to Irish society, reached an unprecedented height of power. In the ninth century, the Viking raids and settlements provided new problems in relation to spiritual vitality of the Irish. This book traces the history of the church in Ireland up through the twelfth century. The main emphasis is on the church as an institution, but it also examines what Christianity meant to different people at different times and illustrates some of Ireland's contacts with England and the continent. -- Publisher description

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten trillion dollars in Americans' retirement savings are invested in large and small accounts managed by banks, brokerages, mutual funds, and insurance companies. But whether your IRA or 401K will assure a safe retirement is largely a gamble. Building off reporting from the groundbreaking special Money, Power and Wall Street, Frontline raises troubling questions about how America's financial institutions protect our savings. The Retirement Gamble reveals how fees, self-dealing, and kickbacks bring great profits to Wall Street while imperiling the prospects of a secure future for individuals. The film questions who has the consumer's best interests in mind, and whether there is a better way to manage our retirements

Cliffhanger( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frontline investigates the inside history of how Washington has failed to solve the country's problems of debt and deficit. Drawing on interviews with key players in Congress and the White House, Frontline goes behind the scenes to show how a clash of politics and personalities has taken the nation's economy to the edge of the "fiscal cliff," and now to a second round of standoffs over the debt ceiling and sequestration. The film explores the deep ideological divide inside the Republican Party and the struggle between House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and House Speaker John Boehner as they take on President Obama and the Democrats

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1992, Bill Moyers and Frontline have been following the story of two ordinary, hard-working families in Milwaukee - one black, one white - as they spent two decades in an extraordinary battle to keep from sliding into poverty. With poignant and revealing intimacy, Two American Families chronicles the struggles of the Neumanns and the Stanleys as they try to hold onto their homes, their jobs, their health insurance, and a future for their children. A remarkable portrait of perseverance, the 90-minute film raises unsettling questions about the changing nature of the U.S. economy and the fate of a declining middle class
The Choice 2012( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frontline explores and illuminates the critical issues of our times - from business and health to social issues, politics and war. It's been called the starkest choice in years, between two men with sharply different backgrounds, views, and prescriptions for fixing the country's problems. Mitt Romney and Barack Obama have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to tell their own stories, but in The Choice 2012, Frontline goes far beyond the headlines on a journey deep into their worlds, among their friends and family, critics, and closest colleagues, to understand what drives these men. Based on dozens of new interviews and hundreds of hours of research, Frontline's authoritative profiles that emerge are also a portrait of America in an era of uncertainty-and a guide to the choices that lie ahead
Frontline, The Suicide Plan( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

You have an incurable illness, you want to die, and you want help dying - what can you do? People who are terminally ill and live in Oregon or Washington can openly ask a doctor for help, but in the rest of country, where physician-assisted suicide is illegal, people who are suffering turn in secret to friends, family members, and even activist organizations. In this groundbreaking film, Frontline explores the shadow world of assisted suicide, where the lines between legality and criminality are blurred as never before. With intimate access to decisions near the end of life, Frontline takes viewers inside one of the most polarizing social issues of our time - told not only by the people choosing to die, but also by their "assisters," individuals and right-to-die organizations at risk of prosecution for their actions to hasten death
Frontline: Raising Adam Lanza( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the wake of the mass killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Frontline investigates a young man and the town he changed forever. Adam Lanza left behind a trail of death and destruction, but little else. He left no known friends, no diary. He destroyed his computer and any evidence it might have provided. His motives, and his life, remain largely a mystery. In collaboration with The Hartford Courant, Frontline looks for answers to the central, and so far elusive question: who was Adam Lanza? Also this hour: In the aftermath of the tragedy, President Obama called for a national conversation about guns in America. Nowhere is that conversation more intense than in Newtown, where Frontline finds a town divided and explores how those closest to the tragedy are now wrestling with our nation's gun culture and laws
Inside Obama's presidency( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Barack Obama is sworn in for his second term, Frontline takes a probing look at the first four years of his presidency. With inside accounts from his battles with his Republican opponents over health care and the economy to his dramatic expansion of targeted killings of enemies, Frontline examines the president's key decisions and the experiences that will inform his second term
Frontline: The Untouchables, Money, Power and Wall Street( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a special four-hour investigation, Frontline tells the inside story of the origins of the financial meltdown and the battle to save the global economy. The films explore key decisions, missed opportunities, and the unprecedented moves by the government and banking leaders that have affected the fortunes of millions of people. Hour One begins with the epic story of the rise of modern finance. A revolution in banking begins at a luxury hotel in Boca Raton, FL, where a rowdy team from J. P. Morgan invents a new marketplace for trading risk. Correspondent Martin Smith (College, Inc., The Madoff Affair) interviews leading bankers, officials and journalists to explain how financial engineering on Wall Street brought the global economy to its knees--and the reverberations are still being felt along Main Street. Then, in Hour Two, Frontline producer Michael Kirk (Inside the Meldown, The Warning) investigates how the country's leaders failed to prevent an oncoming crisis and ended up initiating the largest government bailout in history. Told by participants from Washington and Wall Street, the story includes inside accounts from the campaign of presidential candidate Barack Obama. By the time of his election Obama is thoroughly up to speed on the disaster, but the question remains--what can he do once he takes office? Hour Three opens with Barack Obama taking office in the midst of the worst economic crisis in 80 years. To the surprise of many, he adopts a strategy to help the very Wall Street firms that plunged the American economy into chaos. Frontline goes inside the White House to meet the key figures locked in a fierce debate over the administration's game plan and follows those who said they had no choice but to rescue Wall Street. Did they choose the right course? In Hour Four, Frontline probes into a Wall Street culture that remains focused on making risky trades. Bankers left an ugly trail of deals extending from small American cities to European capitals. For more than three years, regulators have tried to fix an industry steeped in conflicts of interest, excessive risk taking, and incentives to cheat. New rules and regulations are being written, but can they fend off the next crisis?
A history of medieval Ireland by Jocelyn Otway-Ruthven( Book )

15 editions published between 1968 and 1993 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A History of Medieval Ireland is an authoritative account of Irish history from the Norman invasion in 1170 to the passing of Poymimngs laws in 1494. A.J. Otway-Ruthven, a member of the Royal Irish Academy and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, has given us a major work on Ireland, one that will be warmly received by both medievalists and students of Irish history. Ms. Otway-Ruthven concentrates on the political and constitutional structure of the Norman-Irish colony during this period when Irish lords became virtually independent and were increasingly hostile to the English. At the same time officials in Dublin were desperately trying to keep peace between rival Irish clans. It was an important period in the course of Irish history because it laid the groundwork for many of the conflicts which would later cause Ireland to erupt in rebellion against the British. Ms. Otway-Ruthven, in A History of Medieval Ireland, provides a clear, balanced, and accurate account of this important period in the history of Ireland."--Jacket
