Six days in June the war that redefined the Middle East ( Visual )
2 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

When Henry Ford's Model T rolls onto the scene in 1908, it is inconceivable that it will ever be anything more than a plaything for the wealthy. But mass production and the moving assembly line, allowed manufacturers to produce goods at affordable prices that made them accessible to a new mass market.

When Lenin's Bolsheviks stormed the Winter Palace in 1917, they did so in the name of a new ideology. Millions were drawn by its promise. In this film the people who were there--from members of the Red Guard to party activists to students--explain how Communism appealed to their deepest hopes and dreams.
