Lee, Harper. To Kill a Mockingbird.  DVD

“When a Southern white woman accuses a black man of rape, the outcome of the trial is a foregone conclusion and no lawyer except Peck will defend him. Peck’s defense costs him friendships but earns him the respect of his two children. Includes extra interview footage.” – Library Catalog Summary

Nash, Michael. Climate Refugees.

 “Explores the global human impact of climate change and its serious destabilizing effect on international politics, turning the distant concept of global warming into a concrete human problem with enormous worldwide consequences.” – Library Catalog Summary

Early, Gerald. Best African-American Fiction.

This is the second volume in the annual anthology collects the year’s best short stories by African-American authors.

Carter, Stephen. Emperor of Ocean Park.

 “An extraordinary fiction debut: a large, stirring novel of suspense that is, at the same time, a work of brilliantly astute social observation.” – Library Catalog Summary

Rountree, Les. Diversity Amid Globalization.

“This is an issues-oriented book that tackles the geographic changes accompanying today’s rapid rate of globalization. Taking a thematic approach, it gives the information needed to make critical comparisons between the various regions of the world and to understand more fully the interconnections that increasingly bind these regions together. Diversity and Globalization.” – Library Catalog Summary

Pearl, Nancy. More Book Lust

“The response to Nancy Pearland’s surprise bestseller Book Lust was astounding: the Seattle librarian even became the model for the now-famous Librarian Action Figure. Readers everywhere welcomed Pearland’s encyclopedic but discerning filter on books worth reading, and her Rule of 50 (give a book 50 pages before deciding whether to continue; but readers over 50 must read the same number of pages as their age) became a standard MO.” – Library Catalog Summary

Samuelson, Robert. Great Inflation and Its Aftermath. “The Great Inflation, argues journalist Samuelson, was the worst domestic policy blunder of the postwar era and played a crucial role in transforming American politics, economy, and everyday life–and yet its story is hardly remembered or appreciated.” Library Catalog Summary
