Soul of justice : Thelton Henderson's American journey( Visual )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few judges provoke the ire of conservatives more than Thelton Henderson, Senior Judge of the Federal District Court of Northern California. His career in many ways parallels the larger historic arc of the Civil Rights movement and the changing vision of government -- from Jim Crow laws to Civil Rights victories and back again with recent attacks on affirmative action. Similarly reflected are the changes and conflicts in judicial philosophy during those 40 years. Henderson's decisions on affirmative action, environmental protection and prison reform --and the furors that surrounded them --serve as a prism on these changes and what they mean for American society"--California Newsreel website
Everyday heroes( Visual )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everyday Heroes explores the rewards and the potential difficulties, on both a personal and program level, of national and community service and of service-learning. It provides a stimulating launching-point for discussion about civic engagement and youth leadership development. Issues of race and diversity permeate every scene, with the impassioned voices of the service providers "talking across differences." Everyday Heroes is an excellent resource for use in the areas of service-learning, civic engagement, race and diversity, communicating common ground, student affairs and youth development, among others. For program directors in the service community or anyone engaged in youth leadership and development, Everyday Heroes is an invaluable tool that can be used for staff, board and member orientation and training, community outreach and organizing, member recruitment, fund-raising, and race and diversity training. "Anyone who thinks America's youth is in bad shape should see this film; it will give them faith for the future of this nation. This wonderful film should find a home in all libraries and may help encourage viewers to consider volunteering to help America's children succeed." - Danna Bell-Russell, Library of Congress

Returning to South Africa following the release of Nelson Mandela, Albie helped write the new Constitution and was then appointed as one of the first 11 judges to the new Constitutional Court, which for the past 20 years has been insuring that the rights of all South Africans are afforded protection." -- website

THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN AMERICA: DANIEL ELLSBERG AND THE PENTAGON PAPERS( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

L'homme qui a fait tomber Richard Nixon Daniel Ellsberg et les dossiers secrets du Pentagone( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Comment, grâce à un conseiller du Pentagone, les citoyens américains ont appris que tous leurs présidents, de Kennedy à Nixon, leur avaient menti à propos du Viêt-Nam. En 1971, Daniel Ellsberg, un brillant analyste employé comme consultant par le Pentagone, fait parvenir au New York Times un rapport confidentiel de sept mille pages sur la guerre du Viêt-Nam. Ces documents, Ellsberg les a photocopiés. Ils mettent directement en cause l'intégrité des gouvernements Eisenhower, Kennedy et Johnson, qui ont accumulé les mensonges pour poursuivre une guerre qu'ils savaient perdue d'avance. Le rapport montre aussi que les États-Unis s'enfoncent encore davantage dans le conflit avec Richard Nixon, même si celui-ci affirme le contraire. Ces révélations font l'effet d'une bombe. Daniel Ellsberg devient l'homme le plus recherché en Amérique.Tout est fait pour discréditer Ellsberg devant le tribunal - son dossier personnel est même volé chez son psychanalyste. Le but de l'ancien consultant était pourtant d'arrêter une guerre inutile, barbare, coûteuse et injustifiée. Ses révélations explosives n'empêcheront pas la réélection de Nixon en 1972. En revanche, elles exacerberont la paranoïa du président, provoquant indirectement le cambriolage du Watergate."
