For 10 years, Senator Bob Graham served on the Senate Intelligence Committee, where he had access to some of the nation´s most closely guarded secrets. Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, Graham co-chaired a historic joint House-Senate inquiry into the intelligence community´s failures. From that investigation and his own personal fact-finding, Graham discovered disturbing evidence of terrorist activity and a web of complicity. As a result of his Senate work, Graham has become convinced that the attacks of September 11 could have been avoided, and that the Bush administration´s war on terror has failed to address the immediate danger posed by al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, and Hamas in Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, and Somalia. His book is a disturbing reminder that at the highest levels of national security, now more than ever, intelligence matters. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sam Freed.

What is at stake is far from insignificant: it is how one should live one´s life. Plato´s The Republic is widely acknowledged as the cornerstone of Western philosophy. Presented in the form of a dialogue between Socrates and three different interlocutors, it is an inquiry into the notion of a perfect community and the ideal individual within it. During the conversation, other questions are raised: What is goodness? What is reality? What is knowledge? The Republic also addresses the purpose of education and the roles of both women and men as ´´guardians´´ of the people. With remarkable lucidity and deft use of allegory, Plato arrives at a depiction of a state bound by harmony and ruled by ´´philosopher kings.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Langton.
