Root of all evil? by Richard Dawkins( Visual )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This controversial two-part documentary from prominent atheist and evolutionary biologist Professor Richard Dawkins is the companion piece to the best-selling book 'The god delusion'. The 'Root of all evil?' is an incendiary look at the monotheistic religions of Islam, Judaism and Christianity and an unapologetic polemic against blind faith."--CONTAINER
Root of all evil?( Visual )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Root of all Evil?, by the Oxford University evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, is his controversial documentary that accompanies his bestselling book The God Delusion. Dawkins presents his view of religion as a cultural virus that, like a computer virus, once downloaded into the software of society corrupts many of the programs it encounters. It isn't hard to find examples to fit this view; one only has to read the dailies coming out of the Middle East to see its nefarious effects -- Container

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Japanese Imperial family is the oldest hereditary monarchy in the world, dating back to the sixth century BC. However, its central role in Japan has not shielded the family from controversy in recent years. Through personal scandals, and vagaries of the hereditary system, even to their own biology, it’s been a rocky time. But what is left if every tradition is changeable?"--Publisher

Richard Dawkins is astounded that religious faith is gaining ground in the face of rational, scientific truth based on hard evidence. He explores the state of the 3 Abrahamic religions in the world today, from the political influence of rich, powerful Christian fundamentalist institutions in America to the deadly clash of Judaism, Christianity and Islam in the Middle East. Episode 2 looks at sectarian religious schooling, and the increase in the numbers of faith schools. Discusses morality in relation to religion

The last absolute monarch( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brunei may be one of the richest nations in the world, but financial problems have beset even their royal house. The sultan has recently made moves towards some form of partial democracy. However, it is up to him whether or not he introduces it. Why did he make a move to do so, and then let it drop?"--Publisher
Land of the thunder dragon( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bhutan's governing party pledged recently to follow the policies of the absolute monarchy it is replacing, after it won a landslide in the country’s first parliamentary elections. This remote, beautiful country truly is in the throes of a noble experiment. What makes this experiment unique is that this move towards democracy has been initiated by the ruling monarch himself"--Publisher
In the shadows of Angkor( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"King Sihanouk retired in 2004, giving way to his son, Sihamoni -- a ballet dancer. Unlike many monarchies, Cambodia's is not hereditary -- rather the next monarch is chosen by the National Assembly from a pool of eligible candidates. When Sihamoni was chosen, what sort of monarch were they hoping to crown?"--Publisher
Fall of the House of Shah( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2008, Nepal's monarchy was ousted from power, turfed out of their palaces, and the country began a new era as a republic. The story of the fall of the house of Shah is one of bloodshed, betrayal and intrigue. The transformation from kingdom to republic was swift, dramatic, and leaves huge questions unanswered about the future"--Publisher
The root of all evil( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Professor Dawkins presents his view of religion as a cultural virus that, like a computer virus, once downloaded int the software of society corrpts many of the programs it encounters. Illustrates how religion can be a force for unspeakable evil as well s unmitigated good, but how the evl outweighs the good. Explains that with the widespread availability of mass communications coupled to weapons of mass destruction, it is time for humanity to grow beyond religion and toward a worldview of science and reason to become more enlightened and more tolerant. "Professor Dawkins challenges what he describes as 'a process of non-thinking called faith'; ranging from the political influence of rich and powerful Christian fundamentalist institutions in America, to the deadly clash of Judaism, Christianity and Islam in the Middle East. He describes the Holy Land as the least enlightened place on the Earth. A microcosm of the threat to rational values and civilisation posed by religion, whose irrational roots, he says, are nourishing intolerance and murder."--ABC website
