"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."--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
