Elizabeth Bennet is a strong-willed yet sensible young woman, the second of five sisters. She has a long-suffering but loving clerical father, and a scatterbrained mother anxious to marry them off as soon as possible--to wealthy young gentlemen. At a local ball, she encounters one such, Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy, whom she finds arrogant, cold, and rude. Her older sister Jane falls in love with Darcy's best friend Mr. Bingley, while youngest sister Lydia flirts with anyone in a military uniform. Lizzie finds herself fighting off the attentions of the unctuous Mr. Collins and quite taken by the charming Mr. Wickham - who also happens to be an enemy of Mr. Darcy. However, as the characters succumb in many ways to pride and prejudice, Lizzie learns that not all is quite as it seems ... and that Mr. Darcy might not be so disagreeable after all

It comes to a bloody end almost five years later on a motel balcony in Memphis, Tennessee. In the years since those events unfolded, the man at the center, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., has become a mythic figure, a minister whose oratory is etched into the minds of millions of Americans, a civil rights activist whose words and image are more hotly contested, negotiated and sold than almost anyone else's in American history

Ghosts of Rwanda( Visual )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 1,418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten years ago, when the United Nations sent peacekeepers to the small, Central African nation, most of the policymakers involved believed it would be a straightforward mission that would help restore the UN's battered reputation after failures in Bosnia and Somalia. Few could imagine that, a decade later. Rwanda would be the crisis that still haunts their souls. This documentary marks the 10th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide - a state-sponsored massacre in which some 800,000 Rwandans were methodically hunted down and murdered by Hutu extremists as the United States and international community stood by, refusing to inervene. Through interviews with key government officials, diplomats, soldiers, and survivors of the slaughter, Ghosts of Rwanda offers groundbreaking, firsthand accounts of the genocide from those who lived it: the diplomats on the scene who thought they were building peace only to see their colleagues murdered; the Tutsi survivors, who recount the horror of seeing their friends and family members slaughtered by Hutu friends and co-workers; and the UN peacekeepers in Rwanda who were ordered not to intervene in the massacre happening all around them. The documentary features interviews with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, former UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Canadian General Romeo Dallaire, and former National Security Advisor Anthony Lake as well as haunting interviews with the Hutu killers themselves. Ghosts of Rwanda also examines the aftermath of the genocide, the lessons learned - and not learned - by the international community, and question whether the phrase "never again" has more meaning today than it did ten years ago

Simon Schama's Power of art by Simon Schama( Visual )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on eight iconic works of art, this series reveals the history of visual imagination through the ages. A combination of reconstruction, photography and storytelling transport the viewer back to the intense moments when great works were conceived and born: the murderous, messianic world of Baroque Rome; opulent, parvenu Amsterdam; paranoid, revolutionary Paris; Victorian England suffocating beneath riches and righteousness; the madhouses and brothels of Provence; the carnage of civil war Spain; 1950s New York, caught between Cold War jitters and Manhattan glitter. In each place, a great artist is backed into a corner, facing a crisis, given a chance to confound his rivals, enemies and critics one more time
