America at War
In America at War, Dan Rather and the reporters of CBS News provide a unique historical record of military conflict from a riveting vantage point -- alongside our brave soldiers on the frontlines of combat. During the war in Iraq, journalists and photographers embedded among our troops had an unprecedented view of the fierce realities experienced by our men and women in uniform -- from the extreme heroism of battle to the poignancy of humanitarian efforts. Long heralded for setting the standard for television journalism, Dan Rather and his CBS News colleagues deliver here a volume of work that captures, as never before, that firsthand perspective. In reflective personal commentary, stunning photographs, and groundbreaking video, the exhilarating and heartbreaking stories of war come vividly to life against the backdrop of a military conflict that affected Americans at home and abroad. Among the contributors is Mark Strassmann, embedded with the First Brigade of the 101st Airborne in Kuwait, who recalls the aftermath of the shocking fratricide that claimed one officer's life and injured fourteen others. Allen Pizzey relays his conversation with a U.S.-backed Kurdish fighter outside of Mosul, still reeling with anger after a U.S. air strike gone devastatingly wrong killed more than seventeen. Jim Axelrod recounts the heart-stopping moment when the Humvee in which he was traveling quit in the middle of an unprotected bridge, and with AK-47 fire whistling overhead, his colleagues in a nearby truck performed a daring rescue. These and many other stories are reported with the vivid detail and emotional resonance of firsthand experience. A full-length DVD tells the full chronological story of the military conflict and brings together some of the most powerful war images ever captured -- from video of blazing firepower to intimate, revealing interviews with military personnel. The DVD also contains special features, including Dan Rather's exclusive interview with Saddam Hussein, gripping stories of soldiers lost and rescued, and an informative library of military vehicles and aircraft. From the first jet that took off from the USS Abraham to the now-famous toppling of the Saddam Hussein statue in Baghdad, the reporters of CBS News were there on the frontlines, documenting history as it happened. Now, in words, photographs, and video, America at War provides a unique historical record of a controversial military conflict, and preserves the deeply human moments that will remain a lasting part of our national consciousness.

The Class Of 2000
In 1996, in big cities and small towns across America, a new crop of teenagers entered the ninth grade. These students, the class of 2000, experienced the world in a unique way, often enjoying the benefits of a booming economy but also living through a wave of school violence, a presidential sex scandal and impeachment, the dawn of a new century, and the rise of the Internet. Since their first day of high school, the class of 2000 has been interviewed by CBS News in an unprecedented, in-depth study. CBS News's goal was to present a compelling portrait of our country's problems and promise as seen through the eyes of these students. To reach this end, the CBS News Polling Unit conducted scientific polls, revealing the thoughts, fears, and expectations of the class of 2000. The exclusive results of this study are rendered in the e-book The Class of 2000: A Definitive Survey of the New Generation. It paints an unusally clear picture of how these teenagers, now on the brink of adulthood, see the world and their place in it. The Class of 2000 is broken down into important topics such as lying and cheating, religion, dating and sexuality, drugs, guns and violence, school quality, and race relations. Each topic includes profiles and photos of some of the young people interviewed as well as the full polling results and an analysis.
