Why we fight ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Explores a half-century of U.S. foreign policy from World War II to the Iraq War, revealing how, as Dwight Eisenhower had warned in his 1961 Farewell Address, political and corporate interests have become alarmingly entangled in the business of war. On a deeper level, what emerges is a portrait of a nation in transition--drifting dangerously far from her founding principles toward a more imperial and uncertain future

In the colorful, tumultuous setting of postwar Argentina, Eva Peron wielded a power--spiritual and practical--that has few parallels outside of hereditary monarchy. In this "fascinating, frightening, straightforward" (Cleveland Plain Dealer) biography, Fraser and Navarro have produced "a work of great political sophistication. . . . Factual, nuanced, and absorbing" (Kirkus Reviews). Photos

The house I live in ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For over 40 years, the War on Drugs has accounted for more than 45 million arrests, made America the world's largest jailer, and damaged poor communities. Yet for all that, drugs are cheaper, purer, and more available today than ever before. Filmed in more than 20 states, it captures heart-wrenching stories from individuals at all levels, the dealer to grieving mother, the narcotics officer to the senator, the inmate to the federal judge, revealing profound human rights implications
Guerrilla the taking of Patty Hearst ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In today's new and scarier age of terrorism, the actions of a small collection of mixed-race, largely middle-class radical leftists fighting against the Vietnam War, racism, and other social ills in the 1970's seem emblematic of the cultural chaos of the era, nothing more. The event of 1974 occurred when a group calling themselves the Symbionese Liberation Army kidnapped19-year-old newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst in Berkeley, California. The crime received nearly round-the-clock coverage, and made the SLA into counterculture superstars. There are gaps in the story but the film contains rare and long unseen newsreel footage, interviews with two SLA members, and offers a fascinating portrait of not only a kind of psychopathic idealism but also a whole era of extraordinary social turmoil

Picasso days, 1881-1935 ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2000 in French and English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Picasso said that his work should be seen as a kind of autobiography written for himself. But the women in Picasso's life figured extensively. They were his models and he drew and painted them again and again. But they also changed the way he looked at the world. 13 days in the life of Picasso explores the defining moments of the creator of some of the greatest works of the 20th century. Interviews with Picasso's son and daughter contrast a portrait of the man through his paintings, diary extracts and sketches."
The importance of being Eton : [inside the world's most powerful school] by Nicholas Fraser ( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The uniform is Dickensian, the sports arcane, the fees astronomical. But Eton College still stitches itself into the fabric of our national life like no other school? the breeding ground for princes and prime ministers, where the arriviste meets the aristocrat. What is it about Eton? For many it is a symbol of all that is wrong with Britain: an obstacle to modernity and a powerful force for privilege, elitism, and snobbery. For others it represents a beacon of tradition and excellence in an otherwise monochrome world. But whether you love, loathe, fear or ridicule it, no one can ignore

"Drawing on archival footage--including previously unreleased film from Iran--and candid interviews with the American hostages and their Iranian captors, this riveting program presents a balanced look at the harrowing details of the 14-month standoff that brought radical Islam to world prominence and forever altered America's attitude towards the Middle East. Additional interviews with religious leaders, top-level politicians, military personnel, and others flesh out a story of uncertainty, frustration, and hardship for all involved, which was only resolved with the belated release of the hostages in 1981"--Website
