Gandhi : his life and legacy( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gandhi's life is not what it seems. We think we know the story of the visionary in traditional dress, but what of the gentlemen barrister; we know of Gandhi the vegetarian, but what of the Gandhi who craved meat. We know the pacifist, but what of the Gandhi who put his faith in Jihad. Who is the real Gandhi, the man behind the Mahatma, the human being behind the contradictions. Part 1: The making of the Mahatma: Journalist and newsreader Mishal Husain journeys through Gandhi's early years in India to the end of his controversial career in South Africa. Along the way, she confronts accusations of racism and hypocrisy levelled against Gandhi in this period, and discovers how London played a vital role in the development of the Indian Messiah. Part 2: The rise to fame: Mishal Husain traces Gandhi's transformation from obscure lawyer to "Father Of The Nation" and discovers a more complicated and intriguing man than the saintly Hollywood version. Gandhi had to face unpopularity, political failure and British jails. But in 1930, he triumphs, launching the most astute campaign of the age: the 240-mile Salt March that succeeded in humiliating the British Raj. Part 3: The road to freedom: Mishal Husain explores the dramatic last years of Gandhi's life, which culminated in his death by an assassin's bullet. She gets to the bottom of an enduring mystery: why is Gandhi revered as Father of the Nation, when India turned its back on Gandhi's blueprint for the country? Mishal retraces Gandhi's visit to England in 1931 and uncovers evidence that Gandhi may have unwittingly contributed to the eventual Partition of India. Newsreel footage from the time captures Gandhi meeting the people of Lancashire (Northern England) and London's East End, and politician Tony Benn recalls meeting him as a six-year-old boy. Sixteen years later, India is free, but by then Gandhi is a broken man: sidelined from the center of power and devastated by Partition and the horrific violence that Independence brings. But it is Gandhi's darkest hour that finally brings his greatest triumph

2 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a series of powerful and revealing interviews from inside Israeli prisons, this Wide Angle documentary examines the motives of Palestinian suicide bombers. A recruiter, a bomb builder, and three failed suicide bombers captured by Israeli security forces speak openly of their training, motivation, operational methodology, and profound belief in the idea of entering paradise as a shahid - a martyr for Islam. They discuss their hatred of Jews and Israel, their determination to die, and the personal motivations that have influenced them - including a failed love, a sense of personal revenge, the frustration of living under the Israeli occupation, and envy for the prosperous Israeli lifestyle. In addition, Sari Nusseibeh, president of Al-Quds University, speaks with anchor Mishal Husain."--Back cover

"Without schooling, a child has no future. Without an educated population, a nation has no future. These two parts of an ongoing Wide Angle series ... examine gaps and voids in educational opportunities that, tragically, keep many developing countries from advancing. Following a group of children from around the world as they progress through life -- and, on an uneven basis, through school -- the series gets to the heart of this colossal yet not intractable socioeconomic problem."--Container

"After genocide ripped their nation apart in the 1990s, the women of Rwanda have led the healing process and have helped usher in a much-needed era of stability. By depicting the multifaceted efforts of women activists to build a sustainable peace between the majority Hutus and minority Tutsis, this Wide Angle documentary explores the challenges facing Rwanda. The film features an in-depth examination of the remarkable role Rwandan women play in politics and the business sector and shows how one portion of a citizenry, no matter how under-recognized and under-appreciated, can help guide a nation and provide a courageous example to the wider world. Ambassador Swanee Hunt, Director of the Women and Public Policy Program at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, discusses Rwanda's women with Mishal Husain."--Container
