Miguel 'Sugar' Santos is a talented Dominican baseball player who longs to break into the American big league and earn the money needed to support his impoverished family.

Advancing in baseball's minor league system at the tender age of 19, Miguel is warmly welcomed into the small-town Iowa home of his host family. He struggles with language and cultural barriers despite the kindness of strangers. Subsequently forced to reevaluate his life's ambition after his once-trusty arm becomes unreliable.

Globalization : winners and losers( Visual )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How is business without borders really affecting the world? As Sabeer Bhatia, inventor of Hotmail; Narayan Murthy, founder of Infosys; and other industry leaders attest, globalization has raised the standard of living in developing economies through high-tech opportunities, foreign investment, and debt relief. However, Harvard's Jeffrey Sachs and other experts point out that the world market is being exploited through shortsightedness, including the aggressive deployment of genetically modified crops, environmental negligence, and the abuse of NAFTA. This program-produced in the aftermath of the WTO protests in Seattle-addresses the pros and cons of doing business in the global marketplace
Shackled women : abuses of a patriarchal world( Visual )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With dowries reaching fifty percent of a family's income, a second daughter is often called "the girl born for the burial pit. This program assesses second- and third-world abuses of women's rights by the male establishment-and examines how female collaboration sometimes contributes to their perpetuation. Feminist Taslima Nasreen; the author of Brides Are Not for Burning; and others speak out on topics such as dowry deaths, female circumcision, the Islamic zina law, the rigors of hijab, and child prostitution. But does the banding together of women against female infanticide in Tamil Nadu spell the beginning of a women's solidarity movement and a new world order?
Global exchange : free trade and protectionism( Visual )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program surveys the history and politics of cross-border trade, identifying ways that nations have tried to strengthen, reduce, or prevent it. Outlining the concept known as pattern of trade, the video examines cases for and against free trade while studying comparative advantage, wage inequality, economies of scale, and the infant industry argument. The evolution of international trade policy is also examined, featuring prominent examples of pro- and anti-protectionist measures: the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act, GATT, NAFTA, the emergence of the World Trade Organization, and more. The success of East Asian economies following World War II highlights the principle of export-oriented industrialization
Kashmir : valley of despair( Visual )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The valley of Kashmir is occupied by both India and Pakistan and acts as a buffer zone between these two nuclear powers. The Kashmiri people want an independent, autonomous state, which India refuses to grant. India fears that if Kashmir gains sovereignty, other ethnic minorities may also demand independence. The Kashmiri rebels, backed by Pakistan, and Indian government forces are waging a war of attrition that nobody appears to be winning and which could result in nuclear conflict. This program provides a history and a thorough analysis of the political, religious, and ethnic causes of the Kashmir conflict
Globalization at a crossroads( Visual )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To some, the term "globalization" means ruthless exploitation by corporations; to others, it means bringing economic development to all the peoples of the world. This program explains key principles at the core of global economics and takes a historical look at their effects, focusing on market liberalization and the failed "East Asian miracle"; privatization of basic resources in Bolivia and the severe backlash against it; Russia's rapid transition to capitalism and the oligarchism and kleptocracy that came to characterize it; and China's incremental implementation of capitalism under communism. The video also takes stock of the seismic shift in the U.S. economy and its probable effect on the rest of the world
The forgiveness of blood( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in Albanian and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nik is an ordinary Albanian teenager. More interested in Facebook than his family's bread-delivery business, he has 2 simple dreams: to open an internet cafe and to win his crush's love. But his life is thrown into turmoil after his father is accused of murder & flees the town. An archaic Albanian "eye for an eye" law means that the victim's family may seek justice, forcing Nik and his family to stay locked inside for safety
Global capital market : risks and rewards( Visual )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program illustrates the flow of international capital, analyzes the risks it presents to banking and currency systems, and studies international political structures created to address those risks. The video presents the pros and cons of financial globalization, in the process explaining the concepts of inter-temporal trade, portfolio diversification, income inequality, and capital inflow and outflow. Recounting fiscal catastrophes that provoked international alarm-including the 1995 Mexican peso crisis and the 1997 implosion of Asian economies that impacted nations across the world-the program draws parallels between our current investment climate and the so-called First Age of Globalization in the late 19th century
State of the Talib( Visual )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary, filmed in early 2001, takes viewers to the villages of Afghanistan to explore Taliban ideology and examine life under Taliban rule. After years of anarchy, the promise of a pure Islamic government seemed attractive to many, but the regime's brutal abuse of basic human rights has changed the lives of the Afghan people for the worse. The film also looks at Afghanistan's relations with Pakistan, from where the Taliban draw much support, and resistance to the Taliban's oppressive regime from Iran and other Muslim countries

Kosovo : of blood and history( Visual )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To fully understand the recent bloodshed in Kosovo, one must go back 600 years and trace the causes of the undying hatreds that permeate Serbia and the surrounding region. Using eyewitness accounts, maps, and footage both of historic events and of Serbian life, this program examines the ethnic nationalism and religious extremism that have resulted in the long-standing hatred between Serbs and Kosovar Albanians--a hatred that continued to destabilize the Balkans during the Milosevic regime."--Distributor's website
Vivamazonia : the Jungle Book of Teaching( Visual )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and Portuguese and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the heart of the Amazon rainforest, a British couple runs a different kind of primary school. Each lesson relates to the pupils' remote jungle environment. The children can't see themselves in the cityscapes of the textbooks sent by the local authorities, so they make all their books from scratch. In mathematics they find fractions in rivers, and the fishing ban soon to expire on their beloved river becomes a subject for history. They learn not just facts and figures, but a responsibility for their natural heritage, and they come to understand the impact the end of the fishing ban will have on their families. This documentary focuses on the people who have the most to lose in our changing world

The Global trade debate( Visual )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As tensions mount between big business and an increasingly powerful activist lobby, the gulf between their positions has never been clearer. This program offers a balanced look at the reality of globalization in an effort to address the issues that underpin the angry rhetoric. Since the founding of the International Monetary Fund, the world has seen a 12-fold increase in global trade. But local economies and the environment have paid a heavy price. Consumers and governments alike must require responsible business practices and cleaner energy, or the global marketplace-potentially beneficial in so many ways-may turn out to be unsustainable
