2-DVD Set, Joseph Campbell - The Power of Myth - with Bill Moyers
When celebrated scholar Joseph Campbell sat down with veteran journalist Bill Moyers for a discussion about his life’s work, the nation was captivated. Exploring how myths hold the key to understanding human experience, the scholar and the journalist touch on topics as diverse as world religions, marriage and pop culture.

The series -- filmed at both George Lucas’ Skywalker Rand and New York’s American Museum of Natural History a quarter of a century ago -- is more than a tribute to the ideas of a remarkable author. It is also a vibrant collection of extraordinary stories spun by a great storyteller, teacher and lecturer. In lively, expansive dialogues, Campbell and Moyers discuss how myths are clues to the spiritual core of human nature and open vistas to human experience across the ages. Myths may vary from culture to culture but, at their deepest level, they reveal the innermost dreams and aspirations of men and women for self-fulfillment, social collaboration and the possibility of transcendence.

“Joseph Campbell agreed that the guiding idea of his work was to find the common themes that run through the world’s myths,” says Moyers. “His most profound teaching was that each of us can slay the inner dragons that imprison us – especially the savage dragon of the narcissistic ego – so that we might experience fully the rapture of being alive.”

Hardcover book, Bill Moyers Journal: The Conversation Continues
Bill Moyers Journal, one of the highest-rated public affairs programs on PBS, drew up to 2 million weekly viewers from 2007 to 2010. Through incisive, morally engaging conversations with some of the leading political figures, writers, activists, poets and scholars at work today, the Journal captured the essence of the past 3 pivotal years in American life and politics, including the final act of the Bush Administration and the early years of the Obama Administration.

Now, Bill Moyers Journal: The Conversation Continues brings this groundbreaking work to the page. From Michael Pollan, David Simon and Jane Goodall to John Grisham, Karen Armstrong and Barbara Ehrenreich, this book introduces ideas that matter today – on subjects as diverse as the politics of food, race in the age of Obama, aging in America, the power of poetry, wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan, the conflict over gay marriage, and the fate of the American newspaper.

With extensive new commentary from Bill Moyers – in the tradition of his national bestsellers A World of Ideas and Healing and the Mind – here is an unparalleled guide to the debates, the cultural currents and, above all, the fascinating people who have so powerfully shaped the world we live in.
