The Lost Massey Lectures Recovered Classics from Five Great Thinkers by Bernie Lucht( )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
<DIV>The CBC Massey Lectures, an annual broadcasting fixture for more than 45 years and Canada's preeminent public lecture series, featured some of the finest talks by some of the greatest minds of modern times. In this extraordinary collection, major thinkers offer passionate polemics on the major issues of the 20th century. Here are King on race and prejudice; Galbraith on economics and poverty; Jacobs on Canadian cities and Quebec separatism; Goodman on the moral ambiguity of America; Brandt on international peace; Kierans on globalism and the nation-state; and much more. Their words not only have considerable historical significance but also remain hugely relevant to the problems we face today. At last, a selection of these "lost" lectures is available to a world so hungry for, and yet in such short supply of, innovative ideas. <EM>The Lost Massey Lectures</EM> includes an introduction by veteran CBC producer Bernie Lucht.</DIV>

"Ideas: Brilliant Thinkers Speak Their Minds is a symposium of prominent thinkers who have shaped the culture of our times. On topics including peace and conflict, ideology and the nation-state, and secularism and religion, voices from the past and present resonate together. Tariq Ali and Romeo Dallaire share dedication to personal responsibility, Northrop Frye's views on the Bible complement Bernard Lewis's assessment of Islam after 9/11, and Noam Chomsky and Hannah Arendt's opinions on violence foreshadow James Orbinski's exposure of false humanitarianism."--BOOK JACKET

Luddites and friends ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"People who are growing sick of cyberspace tend to refer to themselves as "Luddites." Often, they have no notion that living and breathing Luddites were a major force in 19th century British industrial politics. They trashed the technology that was putting people out of work. And, in fact, they weren't the first to resort to similar forms of popular protest. Paul Kennedy considers the historical Luddites and looks even further back at such revolutionary antecedents as the Levellers, the Diggers, the Ranters"--Calendar of programs on CBC "Ideas" Website
