Yet for all that, drugs are cheaper, purer, and more available today than ever before.

Six days in June : [the war that redefined the Middle East]( Visual )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the fighting lasted for only six days in June of 1967, the effects of the Six Day War are still apparent today. On its 40th anniversary, the region remains trapped in conflict and is every bit as explosive as it was then. For Israel, the 1967 war was a military success. But it also redrew the map of the Middle East and mired the region in a never-ending cycle of occupation, terrorism and reprisal. The Six Day War forever changed the politics of the Middle East by helping to destroy the secular basis of Pan-Arab nationalism and transform secular Zionism. It gave rise to a Palestinian nationalist movement and helped unleash the fury of fundamentalism. Shot on location in Israel, Palestine, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Moscow and Washington, this powerful film takes us through the weeks that preceded the war, its six days of fighting and its aftermath that still lingers today

Killer hurricanes( Visual )

3 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Great Hurricane of 1780 took nine days to blast its way across the Caribbean, killing at least 20,000--the highest known death toll of any single weather event in history. What made this superstorm so deadly? To reconstruct its epic scale and investigate what made it so devastating, NOVA joins historians and storm sleuths as they track down clues in eyewitness chronicles, old ruins, and computer simulations. Their evidence points to a truly terrifying, 300-mile-wide storm--with wind speeds probably exceeding 230 miles an hour and 25-foot storm surges that demolished everything in their path. But just how unusual was the Great Hurricane? Diving into sinkholes off Barbados and squirming into caves in the Yucatan, NOVA's experts recover traces of tempests stretching back over more than 1,000 years. The picture they paint is disturbing: mega-hurricanes were not only more frequent in the past but are likely to strike again in our near future, as climate change warms the oceans and fuels more intense hurricanes. Were the deaths and damage inflicted by storms like Hurricane Sandy a prelude to more devastating disasters?"--from container

Darwin's lost paradise( Visual )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Darwin was one of mankind's greatest thinkers. His extensive scientific research, which culminated in the publication of the theory of evolution in 1859, shook man's age-old belief in being the chosen ones, the fruit of "divine creation", and proved that man had developed through a long evolutionary process. Many of the observations which brought Darwin to this new and shocking conclusion were made during his long sojourn onboard the Beagle, a British ship on which he traveled around the world in a voyage that lasted from 1831 to 1836. This docudrama reconstructs Darwin's voyage and asks contemporary scientists why his ideas are still important
