Gandhi. The name conjures the image of a man, unimpressive in appearance, simple in his lifestyle, who spent his life pursuing independence for India. Months after the country achieved that independence from Great Britain, Gandhi’s life ended when an assassin killed him. But Gandhi’s legacy lives on. Gandhi’s rise to political and spiritual leadership is the incredible saga of a man who, in his youth, showed no signs of greatness but who became one of the most influential men of all time. The civil rights movement that was led by Martin Luther King Jr. owes its inspiration to Gandhi; the patient suffering of Nelson Mandela in his fight against apartheid grew out of the civil disobedience of Gandhi. In this book you will hear about...Growing up in IndiaStudying law in LondonPolitical activism in South AfricaBecoming the MahatmaThe battle for independence in IndiaThe martyr of IndiaAnd much more!The 20th century saw the rise of despots and dictators, charlatans and cowards; it witnessed the evolution of weapons so deadly that whole countries could be destroyed; it incubated the rise of political philosophies and religious extremism that sought to eradicate democracy and mock compassion. But amid all of the violence and hatred, Gandhi remained steadfast to his beliefs, and his beliefs have changed the world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Nelson.

His threadbare overcoat is mocked as well. He saves up to buy a new one and wears it for one glorious evening, only to have it stolen that night. He dies soon after from his great loss.

The United States conducted highly classified atomic testing in the Marshall Islands. One of the ships used in the mock up fleet was a captured Japanese Battleship, the Nagato. These ships were equipped with an array of equipment, from cameras to Geiger counters, as well as various farm animals. These tests were intended to determine "Fleet Survivability" in the face of a thermonuclear implosion. Unfortunately, no one fully understood, or could even begin to imagine, the utter devastation about to be unleashed...or the consequences! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Penz.

Priscilla Buckley is probably known for her long and admired tenure as managing editor of the conservative political journal National Review, founded in the 1950s by her brother, William F. Buckley, Jr. But in String of Pearls we meet a different Priscilla, young Pitts Buckley, just out of Smith, eager for the next step up from the college paper to "real" journalism. There she is, in her proper wool suit, her cashmere sweater, and in her string of pearls, notebook at the ready, United Press Radio News Department's fledgling employee. The war in Europe was winding to its close. For Buckley, the atmosphere in UP's New York offices was a heady one; the journalists worked furiously but had time to play practical jokes, stage mock battles on the newsroom floor, and treasure the funny stories that haste and tension engender. Young Priscilla fit right in; she made friends, wrote copy for the reporters to read on the air ("Keep the sentences short!"), and joined in the fun and frequent hilarity. It was a demanding, sometimes heartbreaking, and always vibrant period. The author was pleased a few years later to be offered a job at the Paris bureau of United Press. The young writer who has spent some of her girlhood years living in prewar France with her parents and her numerous siblings found a different Paris at war's end: scars of the prolonged occupation were everywhere. It was a poignant time, but for Priscilla and her friends there was laughter and comic misadventures as well, and she shares them, along with varied characters gathered at United Press at the time, with us. Buckley's stay in Paris was cut short by a summons from brother Bill: Would she be interested in working with him on the new magazine he was starting? Thus ended her UP days, and this began a new and glowing journalistic career. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marguerite Gavin.
