Filmed over the course of three years, this documentary offers viewers unprecedented access to His Holiness the Dalai Lama and his inner circle as they work together to convince the Chinese government of the need for a negotiated settlement on the future of Tibet.

China [electronic resource]: The Rebirth of an Empire

Can China replace the U.S. as the world's preeminent power? And if it did, what type of power would it wield? In Pakistan and Afghanistan, China's investment in infrastructure along with a flow of low-cost goods has beat out U.S. foreign policy in winning the hearts of the people.

Chalmers Johnson (The Blowback Trilogy) discusses American hegemony, Rebiya Kadeer addresses concerns of the Uyghur minority, and exiled dissident Wei Jingshen provides commentary th [...]

Acclaimed director Peter Du Cane weaves historical data with human logistics as he charts the construction of testing facilities, obtaining of materials, and recruitment of scientists - who couldn't tell their families about the top-secret project - while keeping the implications of global politics always in sight.
