The most dangerous man in America : Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon papers( Visual )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg, a high-level Pentagon official and Vietnam War strategist, concludes that the war is based on decades of lies and leaks 7,000 pages of top secret documents to the New York Times, making headlines around the world. [The film tells how] one man's profound change of heart created a landmark struggle involving America's newspapers, president and Supreme Court -- a political thriller whose events led directly to Watergate, Nixon's resignation and the end of the Vietnam War" - - Container
The Force( Visual )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sprawling, immediate, and complex, Peter Nicks's verité documentary moves like a pulsing, timely thriller. In 2014, after over a decade of federal monitoring for misconduct and civil rights abuses, the Oakland Police Department hires Chief Sean Whent ... in hopes of bridging a historically tense divide between its officers and the community they serve. The Force captures everything; it hovers over Oakland's evening skies and rides inside speeding police vehicles, granting viewers breathless firsthand access to some of law enforcement's most dangerous jobs. With fly-on-the-wall intimacy, we see a department trapped in transition, desperate to shed its corrupt image but also challenged by an increasingly organized and urgent Black Lives Matter movement erupting right outside its doorstep"--Container

The kill team looks at the devastating moral tensions that tear at soldiers' psyches through the lens of one highly personal and emotional story. Specialist Adam Winfield was a 21-year-old soldier in Afghanistan when he attempted with the help of his father to alert the military to heinous war crimes his platoon was committing. But Winfield's pleas went unheeded. Left on his own and with threats to his life, Specialist Winfield was himself drawn into the moral abyss, forced to make a split-second decision that would change his life forever
