Presents the reality of gang life in El Salvador, where deported gang members from the United States easily recruit teenagers into two warring gangs. "In the 1990s, thousands of Salvadoran nationals living illegally in the U.S. were deported to their homeland. Some took Los Angeles gang culture with them. This Wide Angle report documents six months spent inside the transnational gang known as "18"--A Salvadoran permutation of L.A.'s notorious 18th Street gang. Following teenage 'homeboys' as they patrol their turf in the streets of San Salvador, the program details the inner workings of 18--initiating would-be members through violent beatings, organizing support for friends in need, orchestrating gang activity behind prison walls, waging endless warfare against its enemies, and putting El Salvador high on the list of the most violent and crime-ridden countries in the world. The program also features anchor Daljit Dhaliwal discussing U.S. anti-gang efforts and deportation policy with Anne W. Patterson, Assistant Secretary of State for Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs."--FMG website

Protestant Reformation ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Protestant Reformation marked the European transition from medieval to modern and, in fact, was the driving force behind that evolution. What began as a radical protest by a single Catholic monk, Martin Luther, became a continent-wide surge of dissatisfaction and religious revolt. In the end, the way was paved for the Enlightenment, the Renaissance, the Industrial Revolution, and the creation of the United States of America. The very borders of Europe's nations were shaped by the influence of the Reformation. In this one-hour special, The History Channel® sweeps viewers back in time to see how this cataclysmic shift occurred, and to witness firsthand the most critical, dramatic moments of the upheaval. From the horrors of the Spanish Inquisition to the debates that raged in the American colonies, you are there to relive the "why" and "how" of the simmering dissent and cultural transformation.--Container
