Party games : surviving a children's party( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How will future historians view the 2008 Summer Olympics? Will the Beijing games be viewed as a turning point in Chinese history? Or will they be seen as a spectacular façade concealing the intractability of Chinese leadership? Filmed during China's pre-Olympic fervor, this program follows citizens of varied ages and backgrounds as they help to shape China's inner workings and its image on the global stage. Viewers will meet a preteen gymnast exhausted from her Olympic training, a high school girl striving to join the Communist Party, a rural mayor up for reelection, and a famous artist who, because of his father's persecution under Mao, is uneasy about his role in designing the Olympic Stadium
Getting rich : the quest for wealth in China( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By embracing private enterprise, China has achieved the most rapid economic advance in history. But how much of its success is founded on the abuse and exploitation of workers? This program examines the rise of China's upper class, looking at new philosophies and business tactics that have created millionaires and billionaires in a once-collectivist society. Viewers are introduced to Zuo Zongshen, owner of the Zongshen Industrial Group and one of the richest men in China --as well as two of his factory employees, among the estimated 100 million Chinese who have left rural villages for low-wage urban jobs. Also studied: the nation's alarming rise in workplace injuries and its booming dot-com industry

Covering more than one hundred years of United States history, traces the evolution of Black American caricatures and their role in political and social conflicts concerning race. Examines specific stereotypes in detail: loyal Toms, carefree Sambos, faithful mammies, grinning coons, savage brutes, and wide-eyed pickaninnies to trace the deeply-rooted stereotypes which have fueled anti-black prejudice throughout American history. The documentary interweaves minstrel shows, greeting cards, advertisements, popular songs, cartoons, films and household artifacts showing caricatured blacks with wooly hair, swollen lips, and bulging eyes, shuffling, dancing and attending to whites with grateful servility. Links each stereotype to the dominant white society's shifting needs to justify black oppression
