«Una nazione al tramonto è un paese che non riesce più a crescere, che si smaglia e si disunisce, e che consuma una frattura con il proprio passato, non riuscendo neppure più a immaginare un futuro. Smarrito il filo della sua vicenda novecentesca, l’Italia odierna è in una condizione siffatta». Ernesto Galli della Loggia ha raccontato negli ultimi vent’anni la crisi del nostro paese in tutte le sue forme: la politica scossa dalla fine delle appartenenze e dal trionfo dell’antipolitica, la società incapace di conciliare multiculturalità e salvaguardia della tradizione nazionale, i valori cristiani indeboliti sotto il peso di innumerevoli tensioni. Passando in rassegna senza sconti tutti i sintomi di un malessere quotidiano –assenza di visione della politica, ristagno dell’economia, una giustizia piena di ambiguità e dai tempi esasperanti, un sistema d’istruzione che non riesce più a fungere da ascensore sociale, il divario Nord-Sud che si aggrava –, queste pagine restituiscono oggi un impietoso ritratto politico e sociale dell’Italia incapace di essere protagonista del proprio tempo. Una metamorfosi tale da indurre l’autore a una considerazione solo apparentemente paradossale: «Sono nato italiano ma mi viene da chiedermi, a volte, se morirò tale. Nella mia generazione, quella che ha visto la luce durante o a ridosso della guerra, sospetto proprio di non essere il solo che più o meno consapevolmente si pone una domanda come questa».
Inabissato, questo il destino di Stragi e trattativa, importante documento della Commissione parlamentare antimafia.Redatto per lo più da magistrati coraggiosi, è qui pubblicato per la prima volta. Non viene esclusa un’ipotesi impressionante, cioè che l’assassinio di Giovanni Falcone e Paolo Borsellino abbia avuto un interesse convergente o sia servito a ripristinare un secolare compromesso tra Stato e mafia. Stragi e trattativa non è né ambiguo né reticente. Fa i nomi di chi si è prestato al cedimento a Totò Riina alla sommità dei palazzi del potere politico, della giustizia e della Polizia. Viene anche assecondato un sospetto del premier Giuliano Amato: nelle stragi del 1992-1993 ci fu la “manina” di poteri criminali estranei a Cosa nostra? La verità in un documento che fa tremare le vene e i polsi.

"Thought provoking and fresh - this book challenges how we think about economics.” Gillian Tett, Financial Times For further information about recent publicity events and media coverage for Rethinking Capitalism please visit Western capitalism is in crisis. For decades investment has been falling, living standards have stagnated or declined, and inequality has risen dramatically. Economic policy has neither reformed the financial system nor restored stable growth. Climate change meanwhile poses increasing risks to future prosperity. In this book some of the world’s leading economists propose new ways of thinking about capitalism. In clear and compelling prose, each chapter shows how today’s deep economic problems reflect the inadequacies of orthodox economic theory and the failure of policies informed by it. The chapters examine a range of contemporary economic issues, including fiscal and monetary policy, financial markets and business behaviour, inequality and privatisation, and innovation and environmental change. The authors set out alternative economic approaches which better explain how capitalism works, why it often doesn’t, and how it can be made more innovative, inclusive and sustainable. Outlining a series of far-reaching policy reforms, Rethinking Capitalism offers a powerful challenge to mainstream economic debate, and new ideas to transform it.

With this book Fallaci breaks a ten year silence--the silence she kept until September 11's apocalypse in her Manhattan house. She breaks it with a deafening noise. In Europe this book has caused a turmoil--polemics, discussion, debates, hearty praises, wild attacks. Fallaci faces the themes unchained by the Islamic terrorism: the contrast and, in her opinion, incompatibility between the Islamic world and the Western world; the global reality of the Jihad and the lack of response, the lenience of the West. She defends our culture and blames what she calls our blindness, our deafness, our masochism, the conformism and the arrogance of the Politically Correct.--From publisher description.

A dead war hero’s lingering influence follows his family from World War II–era London to the 1950s English countryside At the height of World War II, while her husband, Julius, was away at the front, Esme, the mother of two young children, fell in love for the first time. Her lover, a poet named Felix, was fourteen years her junior. After Julius was killed during the evacuation from Dunkirk, Esme hoped that she and Felix would marry. Instead, Felix enlisted, and Esme never saw him again. Now, nearly twenty years later, they’re about to be reunited. But not in the way Esme imagined. Past and present converge at Esme’s country house in Sussex where, during the course of one revelatory weekend, the far-reaching influence of the dead Julius begins to emerge. Narrated in turn by Esme; Felix; Esme’s daughters, Cressy and Emma; and Emma’s boyfriend, Daniel, the story moves seamlessly from one generation to the next as they all attempt to move on with their lives. In the tradition of Jean Rhys and Rosamond Lehmann, Elizabeth Jane Howard’s wit, sensitivity, and unerring powers of observation are on dazzling display in this novel that explores the lingering impact of a heroic action on a soldier’s loved ones. With its timeless themes of courage, love, and loss, After Julius is a towering work of fiction from the bestselling author of the Cazalet Chronicles.

Travels in Arabia Deserta, originally published in 1888, is a two-volume set which describes English poet Charles Doughty's extensive travels through the Arabian deserts and the discoveries he made there. The work became well-regarded for its beautiful prose as well as its extensiveness, which made it a benchmark of ambitious travel writing in the early 20th century. Written in the style of the King James Bible, the text is extravagant and creative. In the 1920's, it was discovered by British Army Officer T.E. Lawrence, who spurred the book's republication, this time with an introduction from Lawrence. The book has been in and out of print since then, but the Cosimo edition is a rare 1921 reprint, and includes the Lawrence introduction. Volume II contains Doughty's travels to Ibn Rash d's town (and the people and culture there), life in Hay l, the journey to Kheybar and his discoveries and encounters there, the Shammar and Harb Deserts in Nejd, the Journey to El-Kas m, and more. CHARLES MONTAGU DOUGHTY (1843-1926) was an English poet and writer born in Theberton Hall, Saxmundham, Suffolk. He attended King's College London and graduated from Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge in 1864. Among this author's works are an epic poem in six volumes titled The Dawn in Britain, published in 1906, and his well-known Travels in Arabia Deserta, for which he received much praise.
