14 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the end of World War I, Britain had promised control of Palestine to both Arabs and Jews. Each of these peoples claimed a longstanding right to the same piece of land, and violence was inevitable. This presentation examines how and why this magical land has become a virtual war zone
Cuba by Joseph Stromberg( )

13 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This island was once a clearinghouse for importing slaves into the New World. It later became one of the world's few remaining bastions of Marxism, proclaiming socio-economic equality.

Germany by Ralph Raico( )

9 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Germany is historically one of the most important of all nations. Since emerging from its days as a Roman province, Germany (including Prussia) has had a central role in European affairs. It has reached the heights in art, music, literature and political power, yet it's also reached the depths in humiliating military defeat and partition. This presentation reviews the broad sweep of German history
The Philippines by Wendy McElroy( )

9 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strategically located, The Philippine Islands have been one of the keys to American policy in the Pacific. But this loose island chain has a bitter history, vacillating between oppression and rebellion. America's military installations here ensure that she will be caught in any Filipino conflict
Ireland by Wendy McElroy( )

6 editions published between 1991 and 2007 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "isle of poets and scholars" has known almost constant warfare for centuries. In 1920, it was divided into North and South. Yet this purely political solution left a religious and cultural schism intact. This presentation follows Ireland's tragic course from St. Patrick to Britain's imposition of direct rule in 1974. The World's Political Hot Spots series explains the basis of conflicts in some of the world's most politically sensitive areas. Many of these regions are in today's headlines, and tensions recently have become violent in virtually all of them. Each presentation covers up to ten centuries of background, revealing how and why today's problems occur

By interviewing business, political, religious and community leaders in Detroit, one of the cities hit hardest by turmoil, the program assesses possible courses of action in four major areas: jobs, housing, schools and welfare

With a culture dating back to at least 700 B.C., West Africa has a long and rich history. British influence after the 16th century, and especially in the 18th century, changed the region's course.
