So he returns, demanding his old soul back, but there are complications: it's in St. Petersburg. Stolen by soul smugglers, it's been sold on the black market to a vapid Russian soap star. Suddenly thrust into the middle of a twisted black market of international soul trafficking, Paul journeys halfway around the world to reclaim what he'd so readily given away

Global exchange : free trade and protectionism( Visual )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 422 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
Globalization at a crossroads( Visual )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 406 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
Kashmir : valley of despair( Visual )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 391 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
Global capital market : risks and rewards( Visual )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 379 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

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 348 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.

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

The film also presents the stories of Rachel Corrie, an American student crushed by a bulldozer as she tried to protect Palestinian homes; photographer Tom Hurndall, who was shot while rescuing a child from gunfire; and cameraman James Miller, killed by Israeli fire despite being unarmed and carrying a white flag

Poverty, politics, and religion : plight of India's poor( Visual )

3 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charges against Christian missionaries for unlawful conversions and desecration of Hindu shrines are fodder for militant Hindu revivalists who seek to claim converts for themselves-and justification for their acts of violence against India's Christian minority. This gripping program investigates the political agendas behind the violence, as the tribal poor-many of whom have benefited socioeconomically from embracing Christianity-are coercively reclaimed by a Hinduism of which they were never a part
