We all have a need to belong, to have a place and a people we fell tied to: our family, our house, our hometown, our nation. Ever since he first visited Ireland with his family twenty years ago, John McCarthy has felt a strong affinity with its people and landscape. Yet in spite of his Irish name, he never thought of himself as remotely Irish. When McCarthy sets up home in wild isolated corner of County Kerry where his ancestors were living a thousand years before, he little realises that he is about to undertake not only a journey into that small rural community but also into his own history and his family. -- back cover

"Captures the increasingly political nature of Hinduism and its volatile relationship with Islam--India's leading minority religion. It argues that this volatility results from their past history, when large parts of India were dominated by the Muslim rulers, the Mughals. Today, many Hindus demand greater recognition of Hinduism in governmental affairs and oppose what they feel is the favoring of Muslims and other minorities"--Container

"In the Islamic Republic of Iran, battle lines are drawn between conservative clerics claiming a God-given right to rule and reformers challenging their authority. This provocative program seeks to understand what happens when a modern state is recreated based on fundamentalist Islamic principles, and whether its society should be open and democratic or oppressed and authoritarian. From Iran's chaotic capital Tehran to its holy city of Qom, Iranians share their thoughts on life before the rise of Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979, the brutal eight-year war with Iraq, and the struggle Islamic reformers face against hard-line Muslims to establish a progressive government in place of a Republic they believe has lost its way"--Container

"Addresses accusations of the Christian right's distorting influence on America's place in the world. President George W. Bush has actively promoted the idea of faith-based initiatives--government's assistance in combating welfare and social deprivation--prompting charges of First Amendment violations from Democrats and liberals. But President Bush has had to force these initiatives through a highly resistant Congress. So is talk of the heavy power of the Christian right on American government based on liberal paranoia, as many conservatives attest? Archival congressional footage, with considerable attention paid to 9/11, chronicles the long-standing debate."--Container
Israel( Visual )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This jarring program chiefly uses the ideological battle between ultra-orthodox Jews and Zionists to examine the division between religion and politics in Israel. Leaders of religious parties attack the thinking of Tommy Lapid, minister of justice and leader of Shinui, the main party advocating secularism. In addition, candid firsthand accounts illustrate the identity crises faced by many Israeli Arabs. Also featured are perspectives of neutral Jews from Poland to Morocco, Ethiopia to Russia, who have emigrated to the progressive city of Ashdod to escape the otherwise dominant religious and secular debate"--Container
Russia( Visual )

"It is no irony that Victor Zorkaltsev, a Communist, is also the head of the religious committee of the Russian parliament, the Duma. It is also not an accident that the Russian government paid for an extraordinary replica of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior that is maintained by local businessmen. And if more than 80 percent of Russians describe themselves as Orthodox Christians, why do only 5 percent go to church regularly? These are three of many examples in this potent program that concentrates on the resurgence of the Russian Orthodox Church and how its aspirations to spiritual and political power pose a threat to the fundamental freedoms of many Russians"--Container

"This controversial program highlights the political initiatives taken by Brazil's top two religious entities: Catholics and evangelical Protestants. It argues that the Roman Catholic Church has always been fused with the nation's identity, from statues of Christ in Rio de Janiero to mark the first centenary of Brazil's independence to the thousands of Brazilian flags waved during the morning mass at the Cathedral of Aparecida. Yet the Church has seemed aloof to many Brazilians; fewer than one in ten attend Mass regularly. With the growing power of the evangelical movement, a battle against the Catholic establishment begins for political collusion at the time of a crucial presidential election"--Container

The ancient places and stories of the Holy Land are so etched into our cultural and mental landscapes that it is hard to separate ancient tales from modern realities. Of course, this is part of the potency of the place, but also part of the illusion
