Guns, germs, and steel by Jared M Diamond( Visual )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 2,137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An epic detective story that offers a gripping expose on why the world is so unequal. Professor Jared Diamond traveled the globe for over 30 years trying to answer this question. Why did Eurasians conquer, displace, or decimate Native Americans, Australians, and Africans, instead of the reverse?

Lewis & Clark : the journey of the Corps of Discovery by Bert Cunnington( Visual )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 1,887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In its time, their journey equaled a voyage to the moon. It took place before the American west became known as "the frontier," when Europeans understood little about what lay within the continent. Courageous in spirit and unyielding in their dedication to the mission, Meriweather Lewis and William Clark led 31 people from the mouth of the Missouri River to the Pacific Ocean and back. In doing so they engendered a riveting tale of adventure and exploration, which, more than 200 years after the launch of the expedition, serves as a rich departure point for the study of post-Revolution American history
Inside Mecca( Visual )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and Turkish and held by 1,319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What do a successful executive from suburban Malaysia, a religious radio commentator from rural South Africa and an Irish-born college professor from the United States have in common? They're all about to embark on the spiritual journey of a lifetime--the sacred Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca known as the hajj. One out of every five people on Earth--some 1.3 billion--practice Islam. Over 80 percent of these Muslims live outside the Middle East, but they share a single spiritual center, and each year two million Muslims visit the holy city during the hajj. During the five-day hajj, believers seek to become closer to God, ask pardon for their sins, and renew their spiritual commitment. The events of the hajj have long remained veiled from non-Muslims, who are forbidden even to enter the holy city of Mecca. But a team of Muslim filmmakers gained access to Islam's holiest place during the peak of the pilgrimage to document the event for National Geographic Television. This film reveals the many faces of modern Islam

Stanford University neurobiologist Robert Sapolsky has been advancing our understanding of stress - how it impacts our bodies and how our social standing can make us more or less susceptible. Research reveals that the impact of stress can be found deep within us, shrinking our brains, adding fat to our bellies, even unraveling our chromosomes. Yet understanding how stress works can help us figure out a ways to combat it and how to live a life free of the tyranny of this contemporary plague
