What unites us : reflections on patriotism by Dan Rather( Book )

24 editions published between 2003 and 2021 in English and held by 2,581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At a moment of crisis over our national identity, journalist Dan Rather reflects on what it means to be an American. He reminds us of the principles upon which the United States was founded. Looking at the freedoms that define us, from the vote to the press; the values that have transformed us, from empathy to inclusion to service; the institutions that sustain us, such as public education; and the traits that helped form our young country, such as the audacity to take on daunting challenges in science and medicine, Rather brings to bear his decades of experience on the frontlines of the world's biggest stories. As a living witness to historical change, he offers up an intimate view of history, tracing where we have been in order to help us chart a way forward and heal our bitter divisions

Why We Fight by Eugene Jarecki( Visual )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,602 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

Harvest of shame by Edward R Murrow( Visual )

13 editions published between 1961 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presented by CBS News correspondent Dan Rather, Murrow's Harvest of Shame is among the most famous television documentaries of all time. Richly photographed and arrestingly poignant, this long-acclaimed 1960 exposé on the degradation and exploitation of migrant farm workers in the United States, some of whom worked for as little as a dollar a day, resonated deeply for a nation unfamiliar with such brutally honest depictions of living conditions that, as Murrow remarks, "wrong the dignity of man." Spokesmen for various groups present their views both for and against the use of migratory workers under the conditions seen. Televised to millions of Americans the day after Thanksgiving to better tap into their emotions, this documentary led to permanent changes in the laws protecting workers' rights and set the tone for a generation of investigative journalists. Harvest of Shame was the final documentary of Murrow's career
What unites us by Dan Rather( Recording )

19 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a collection of original essays, the venerated television journalist, Dan Rather, celebrates our shared values and what matters most in our great country, and shows us what patriotism looks like. Writing about the institutions that sustain us, such as public libraries, public schools, and national parks; the values that have transformed us, such as the struggle for civil rights; and the drive toward science and innovation that has made the United States great, Rather will bring to bear his decades of experience on the frontlines of the world's biggest stories, and offer readers a way forward. After a career spent as reporter and anchor for CBS News, where he interviewed every living President since Eisenhower and was on the ground for every major event, from the assassination of John F. Kennedy to Watergate to 9/11, Rather has also become a hugely popular voice of reason on social media, with nearly two million Facebook followers and an engaged new audience who help to make many of his posts go viral. With his famously plainspoken voice and a fundamental sense of hope, Rather has written the book to inspire conversation and listening, and to remind us all how we are ultimately united
The five gifts : discovering hope, healing and strength when disaster strikes by Laurie Nadel( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It's a club that none of us wants to belong to--you are comfortably living your life when suddenly your world turns upside down. Everything normal is ripped apart. Where do you turn to pick up the pieces? It's a question many of us are asking in these troubling times. While there is no way to predict exactly how you would respond to catastrophic loss, this book offers a psychological roadmap through cycles of shock and trauma to discover meaning, renewal, and hope. First a journalist and then a psychotherapist, Laurie Nadel recognized the need to help people whose lives were shattered by violence. She created emotional first aid tools to calm acute stress reactions after catastrophes and led a program for teenagers whose fathers were killed in the September 11th attacks. But it was when her own home was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in 2012 that she discovered the Five Gifts that helped her rebuild her life. In this practical and compassionate guide, Nadel distills wisdom from several spiritual traditions as well as the latest science on the positive benefits of the Five Gifts--humility, patience, empathy, forgiveness, and growth--gifts that can keep you moving forward when your life veers off course. Each chapter includes keys to calm your mind, body, and spirit, plus inspiring interviews from first responders and survivors of such major events as the Thailand tsunami, the Rwandan genocide, and the Boston Marathon bombing. It's impossible to predict how the heart heals or how long it will take. Let this book serve as a spiritual compass to help you navigate through the dark times into the light"--Page 4 of cover
Buying the war( Visual )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Bush administration marketed and sold the war in Iraq to the American people. How and why did the press buy it, and what does that say about the role of journalists in helping the public sort out fact from propaganda? In this program, veteran journalist Bill Moyers, award-winning producer Kathleen Hughes, and their investigative team piece together the reporting and political spin that shaped the public mind prior to, during, and following the 2003 invasion. Exposing the disappearance of a watchdog mentality in mainstream newspaper and TV journalism, the documentary also highlights the work of intrepid Knight Ridder reporters who dug beneath the surface of administration claims, only to be drowned out by the drums of war. Further insight comes from journalists Dan Rather, former anchor of CBS evening news; Tim Russert of NBC's Meet the press; Bob Simon of 60 minutes; and Walter Isaacson, former chairman of CNN"--Container

Afghanistan : mullah, Marx, and mujahid by Ralph H Magnus( Book )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 2001 military campaign against the Taliban and al-Qa'ida resulted in unprecedented American interest in Afghanistan, and a plethora of instant experts arose to try to explain the country's volatile history. Magnus (who died in November 2000) and Naby are no instant experts but have expertise and extensive experience in Afghanistan, readily visible in this survey of modern Afghan history. The authors' overview of Afghanistan's complicated geography and demography is organized and well presented, as is their succinct survey of early Afghan history (from 500 BC to 1973 in less than 30 pages) -- though one wishes, given the important current role played by former king Zahir Shah, that Magnus and Naby would have told more about his four-decade rule (1933-73). Subsequent history is well narrated and accessible. The authors discuss imperialism without falling into the trap common to Western academics of blaming all of Afghanistan's woes upon foreigners. The analysis has balance and perspective. For example, they address (albeit only in passing) the Pushtun-nationalist rhetoric of successive Afghan governments in the 1950s through 1970s, a critical factor in understanding Pakistan's subsequent decision to back Islamist rather than ethnic nationalist groups in Afghanistan. Likewise, Magnus and Naby's treatment of the rise of the Taliban is well researched and balanced (and fortunately does not subscribe to the oil-company-conspiracy theories peddled by Pakistani author Ahmad Rashid in his well-known 2000 study of the Taliban). There are curious omissions in the narrative, though. Serious discussion of the United States arming of the mujahideen in the 1980s is absent, as is any serious focus on the evolution of the "Afghan Arabs," whose origins are more often than not shrouded in myth rather than reality. Usama bin Ladin is mentioned only in passing. Nevertheless, for those wishing to gain an understanding of the quagmire called Afghanistan, Magnus and Naby's book provides a good start."--Middle East Quarterly (Winter 2003) in www.meforum.org (Jan. 31, 2011)
Shadows of liberty( Visual )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shadows of Liberty reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media: censorship, cover-ups and corporate control. Filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay takes a journey through the darker corridors of the US media, where global conglomerates call the shots. For decades, their overwhelming influence has distorted news journalism and compromised its values. In highly revealing stories, renowned journalists, activists and academics give insider accounts of a broken media system. Controversial news reports are suppressed, people are censored for speaking out, and lives are shattered as the arena for public expression is turned into a private profit zone. Tracing the story of media manipulation through the years, Shadows of Liberty poses a crucial question: why have we let a handful of powerful corporations write the news? We're left in no doubt - media reform is urgent and freedom of the press is fundamental
