Catalysts of change: Exploration, War, and Revolution [videorecording] /produced by Productions Coscient, Inc. in association with Canal Vie, TFO-TV Ontario, Motion International. Princeton, NJ: Films for the Humanities & Sciences [distributor], 2000. 3 videocassettes (53 min. ea.) Performed by: Narrator, George Morris. Abstract Exploration: Spurred on by trade, necessity, and curiosity, all peoples throughout history have engaged in exploration. Yet while some nations, such as China, explored with the goal of forming peaceful trade partnerships, others, including Portugal, Spain, the Netherlands, France, Britain, and even the U.S., tended toward conquest and colonization. This program investigates the imperatives that promote exploration, addressing the characteristics that have prompted some countries to coexist peacefully and others to act exploitatively. War: Wherever political, religious, racial, ideological interests collide, diplomacy and tolerance historically yield to the barbarity of war. In this program, political scientist Charles-Philippe David, Jean-Louis Dufour, editor-in-chief of the magazine Difense, and historians Robert O'Connell, Andri Corvisier, and Laurent Henninger trace the history of warfare from its remote origins to the present day and discuss whether it is avoidable or an innate human drive. Will the battles of tomorrow be fought by computer proxies, or will conventional troops always be used to attack and occupy territory? Revolution: By definition, a revolution is an abrupt and usually violent change in the political and social structure of a country, occurring when people are pressed to the very limits of tolerance. Historian Michel Guay and sociologists Alain Touraine and Jack Goldstone discuss the preconditions necessary to ignite a revolution and present possible outcomes, drawing on historic examples such as the American, French, Russian, and Chinese Revolutions. Nonmilitary revolutions are considered as well, including the industrial, feminist, and information revolutions. University Museum Library Desk VHS HM831 .C38 2000

Abstract: This film on the latest medical technology in human reproduction raises complex bioethical issues. Building on the technology of in vitro fertilization pioneered twelve years ago, doctors can now implant eggs taken from the ovaries of a donor. A child born by this method will effectively have two mothers, a genetic mother who donated the egg, and a carrying, or birth mother. Which woman, according to the law will have the greater claim on the infant? Should children born by such methods be told about their origins? The film also shows that with implantation the childbearing years can be extended. While one doctor feels that women could bear children until the age of sixty-five, he questions whether this is really desirable for society. Is it the court or the medical profession who should make decisions like these? University Museum Library Desk VHS RG133.5 .M68 1990
