A problem from hell : America and the age of genocide by Samantha Power( Book )

73 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 4,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Problem from Hell" is a path-breaking interrogation of the last century of American history. Samantha Power poses a question that haunts our nation's past: Why do American leaders who vow "never again" repeatedly fail to marshal the will and the might to stop genocide? She provides the answer in the form of the suspenseful story of courageous individuals who risked their careers and lives in an effort to get the United States to act. Drawing upon exclusive interviews with Washington's top policymakers, access to thousands of pages of newly declassified documents, and her own reporting from the modern killing fields, Power shows how those who urged U.S. action were thwarted again and again by ignorance, indifference, and, above all, a failure of imagination."--Jacket

They Turned Our Desert into Fire by Mark Brecker( Visual )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reporting the devastation, forced displacement, and genocide in Darfur should be a story with daily coverage. Mere mention of the word Darfur should set off a passionate exchange, or at least the question, What can be done? Unfortunately, the people of Darfur struggle with a problem common to so many victimized by geo-political realities how to overcome the willful indifference of powerful government and media interests who find their story unimportant or merely inconvenient. With images and first-hand accounts, filmmaker Mark Brecke shares his experience of the Darfur crisis with Amtrak train passengers journeying eastward on a three day trip to Washington D.C. Their reactions, interwoven with hard facts and expert opinion, raise the central question in They Turned Our Desert Into Fire - Why does the public not understand the severity of this crisis and how can the world continue to do nothing? In addition to the film and a slideshow of Brecke's photographs, this video also contains the short film War as a Second Language (27 min., 2002). Mark Brecke culled from 15 years of newsreels, documentaries, and raw footage of the Vietnam War to create an audio track which he then juxtaposed with moving and still images he shot in Vietnam and Cambodia in 1995. Tourists replace soldiers and the audio design becomes a haunting and evocative narrative about history and the legacies of war
Reporter( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Follows New York Times op-ed columnist Nicholas Kristof as he seeks to bring the plight of the Congo to a seemingly deaf western world. Using the findings of psychological studies as his guide, Kristof seeks to find that single person, that single heart-wrenching story he can use as a focus for his columns, and thus touch well-off and uninvolved western readers. Along with highlighting the suffering and death among Congolese refugees fleeing the ongoing ruthless conflict between several factions and warlords, the film questions humanitarian activism itself--how can those who care about humanitarian needs convince others to care about them as well, and how can they themselves keep from becoming jaded and unflappable?

"La muerte del carismático comisionado de los derechos humanos, Sergio Vieira de Mello, en un ataque suicida en Bagdad en 2003, representó, al mismo tiempo, la culminación trágica de un idealista que dedicó su vida a luchar contra la guerra, y el inicio de una serie de desventuras para los representantes de la ONU en Irak... Samantha Power sigue a Vieira a través de su carrera, explica su condición de exiliado, habla de sus aportaciones a la construcción de la paz y recuerda las trasgresiones a las prácticas burocráticas de la ONU que lo llevaron a convertirse en una de las figuras centrales de la diplomacia internacional durante las décadas finales del siglo XX"--P.
