U.S. Policy in a Global World
How should the United States meet the challenges of today's and tomorrow's world? Track post-Cold War shifts in world power as we highlight U.S. foreign policy over the last 25 years. Then consider current international issues and U.S. responses.

Girl of the Golden West Meets Princess of the East
Two Puccini heroines, Minnie and Turandot, get their man and actually live to sing about it—an operatic rarity! Take musical journeys to Gold Rush California in “The Girl of the Golden West" and legendary China in Puccini’s final opera, "Turandot.”

Three Bogeymen of English Literature and Theatre
Take a perceptive look at three of the most memorably notorious villains of English fiction: Shakespeare's Shylock, Marlowe's Barabas, and Dickens' Fagin. Learn how they figures reflect the historical eras of their works and their authors’ mindsets.
