Ulysses S. Grant warrior, president ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This biography of Ulysses S. Grant paints a nuanced portrait of one of America's most paradoxical leaders. The greatest hero of the Civil War, Grant was a brilliant military strategist who rose from obscurity to a rank held previously only by George Washington. However, the strength of the Confederate resistance forced Grant into a hard war that destroyed the South and led to his being labeled "a butcher." Propelled into the White House by his battlefield success, Grant lacked the political skills to deal with the issues of the era: reconstructing the South and managing the nation's rapidly expanding economy. His two terms were rocked by bitter racial conflict and corruption scandals. Seven years after leaving office, Grant was financially ruined by the collapse of an investment house in which he had placed his assets. He spent his final days in a race against time as he battled cancer while finishing his epic war memoirs
Young Doctor Freud ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This episode relates how Freud abandoned the idea that hysteria was caused by childhood abuse and implicated the power of fantasy and wishes, forces hidden from conscious awareness. He began to analyze himself, and discovered, in part by analyzing his own dreams, an inner rivalry with his father and long-submerged feelings of passion for his mother. He came to believe that such deep-seated emotional conflicts are powerful and likely universal a theory that became the basis of the now-famous "Oedipus complex." Concluding that dreams were the gateway to understanding the unconscious mind, Freud threw himself into the creation of a seminal work on the subject, The Interpretation of Dreams

Young Dr. Freud ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This first episode relates how Freud, as a young scientist at the end of the 19th century, was fascinated by the brain. An aspiring neurologist, he traveled to Paris, where doctors were trying to understand the mental illness known as "hysteria," and witnessed its treatment with hypnosis. Freud committed himself to finding the cause of hysteria and its cure. Returning to Vienna, he began medical practice treating nervous disorders. To cure his patients, he tried, then abandoned, hypnotism, inventing his own treatment based on "free association" and interpreting dreams. As he struggled to formulate his theories, Freud was tormented by headaches, palpitations, and depression. To his horror, he came to believe that hysteria was caused by childhood sexual abuse
Killer flu ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Over the centuries, humans have endured many influenza pandemics. Descriptions of the disease in Europe date back to 1100 A.D., and sporadic, isolated outbreaks have likely been occurring for many thousands of years. But no flu ever struck as fast, as hard, and with such lethal power as the 1918, or "Spanish Flu," which rivals the Black Death as the deadliest epidemic in history. To a world already ravaged by war, the 1918 pandemic was crippling; some 30 to 40 million people died worldwide, with the highest death rate occur[r]ing in young men and women. In the United States, 675,000 people died, including over 40,000 G.I.s -- 40 percent of all of those who perished in World War I. Since the original broadcast SECRET'S OF THE DEAD: KILLER FLUE, Taubenberger's team has successfully created a genetic sequencing of the 1918 virus, resurrected the virus itself to study its effects on lung tissue, and this fall announced a striking similarity between the 1918 virus and today's H5N1 avian flu virus. Their findings indicate that the 1918 virus originated as a bird flu, confirming the legitimacy of concerns about avian flu"--FAQ page

"As a young scientist, Sigmund Freud is fascinated by the brain, but unable to earn enough money to marry the woman he loves, he abandons research for a career in medicine. An aspiring neurologist, Freud travels to Paris, where doctors are trying to understand the mental illness known as "hysteria." Here, he witnesses the seemingly miraculous treatment of the illness with hypnosis, which sometimes offers temporary relief. His interest piqued, Freud commits himself to finding the cause of hysteria and its cure. He returns to Vienna and begins medical practice treating nervous disorders. To cure his patients, he tries, then abandons, hypnotism, inventing instead his own unusual treatment based on "free association" and interpreting dreams. As he struggles to formulate his theories, Freud is tormented by migraine headaches, heart palpitations, and depression. To his horror, he comes to believe that hysteria is caused by childhood sexual abuse, but his colleagues roundly reject his theory. Freud, however, is convinced that he has found the key to unlocking the secrets of the mind."--Container
