This collection of documentaries produced by A & E presents a broad overview of organized crime in America, beginning with immigrants who formed gangs soon after arriving in the late 19th century. The focus is on Italian-American gangsters, though there are mentions of Irish and Jewish gangs, which at various times cooperated with or competed against the Mafia, and one program in the collection presents skeins of conjecture while seeking to document links between the Mob and the Kennedy political dynasty. The documentaries use vintage newsreel footage as well as clips of Hollywood versions of gang life to illustrate the narration

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This documentary brings to life the Sahara's cruel history and the conflicts that still plague its people.

It tells of Roman death squads that exterminated the citizens of the Empire's most bitter rival and how the Foreign Legion crafted a legend out of last stands and lost causes. From the fabled metropolis of Timbuktu to the shores of Tripoli, this film is an illuminating exploration of this unforgiving and remote land of myth and mirage. Also included is a bonus disc that examines the lives of two men -- T.E. Lawrence and Erwin Rommel -- who shaped the desert's modern history and were themselves forever changed by the Sahara
