Margaret Mead : an observer observed by Alan Berliner( Visual )

7 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary is a fascinating portrait of one of the most influential women of our time. Using never- before -seen archival footage, stills, interviews and dramatic re-creations, it weaves together a story of a scientist, adventurer and international celebrity whose ideas shaped how we think about ourselves. The film tells how she first gained attention in the 1920 s and 30 s with her pioneering studies of youth and gender in Samoa and New Guinea. By age 33, the five-foot, one-hundred-pound Mead had traveled three times around the globe, explored unchartered lands where few men and no women dared to go. By age 34 she had published three bestsellers, taken the second of three husbands, and revolutionized our understanding of what it means to be male or female. When she was not doing fieldwork, most of her professional years were spent at the American Museum of Natural History. In her later years she was often seen on television as a bespectacled, sometimes outrageous advice-giver to the Vietnam War generation. This film deals with the controversies as well as the accomplishments of her life. Here is a valuable film for Women's Studies, Anthropology and History, as well as public library audiences. This film was partially funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Science Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation

Traitors within( Visual )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In intelligence circles, 1985 is known as "The Year of the Spy." That year, high-profile cases rattled four different agencies: Robert Miller with the FBI, John Walker with the Navy; Edward Howard Lee with the CIA, and Ronald Pelton, from the ultra-secretive National Security Agency (NSA). But the accomplishments of these traitors pales beside those of Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen. .... Filled with interviews with top experts, former agents and highly-placed analysts, TRAITORS WITHIN details all six cases, showing how security was breached, why the perpetrators were able to get away with it and how they were ultimately caught. The first hour of the show breaks down the events of 1985, while the second hour probes more deeply into the Ames and Hanssen cases." - History Channel Web site
