The crocodile by Maurizio De Giovanni( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Naples as you've never seen it before. A chaotic, shadowy city full of ominous echoes and dark alleyways where each inhabitant seems too absorbed by his or her own problems to give a damn about anybody else. And that is exactly what makes it possible for a cold, methodical killer to commit his atrocious crimes largely undisturbed, to merge with the crowd as if he were invisible. The newspapers call him "The Crocodile" because, like a crocodile, when he devours his own children, he cries. And like a crocodile he is a perfect killing machine: he waits and watches until his prey is within range, and then he strikes. Three young people with very diverse backgrounds have been found murdered in three different neighborhoods, each shot with a single bullet, execution style. While his colleagues see little or no connection, Inspector Giuseppe Lojacono, smells a rat. He is driven by his instincts and his own troubled recent history. He has just been transferred to Naples from Sicily where a Mafioso-turned-informant accused him of leaking sensitive information to the mob. Once an esteemed member of the mobile unit of the Agrigento police force, Lojacono has lost everything, first and foremost the love of his wife and daughter. But now he's been given a second chance and a shot at clearing his name. A young magistrate, the beautiful Laura Piras, wants him in Naples. She's heard of his preternatural skills and his incredible powers of observation and she thinks a man like him is needed in Naples. So it is that Inspector Lojacono is charged with finding the link between the three dead bodies. At the root of these murders, he will discover, is a pain that still burns, a sense of guilt than cannot be purged, and one all-consuming love

Getting into serious trouble with the wrong people, deputy prefect of police Rocco Schiavone is exiled to Aosta, a small, touristy alpine town far from his beloved Rome. The sophisticated and crotchety Roman despises mountains, snow, and the provincial locals as much as he disdains his superiors and their petty rules. But he loves solving crimes. When a mangled body has been discovered on a ski run above Champoluc, Rocco immediately faces his first challenge, identifying the victim, a complex procedure complicated by his ignorance of the customs, dialect, and history of his new home.

The nun by Simonetta Agnello Hornby( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

August 15, 1839, Messina, Italy. In the home of Marshall don Peppino Padellani di Opiri, preparations for the feast of the Ascension are underway, but for Agata, the Marshall's daughter, there are more important matters at hand. She and the wealthy Giacomo Lepre have fallen in love. Her mother, however, is determined that the two young people will not marry. When, one month later, Marshall don Peppino dies, Agata's mother decides to ferry her daughter away from Messina, to Naples, where she hopes to garner a stipend from the king and keep her daughter far from trouble's reach. They travel to Naples on a boat captained by the young Englishman, James Garson. Following a tempestuous passage to Naples, during which Agata confesses her troubles to James, Agata and her mother find themselves rebuffed by the king and Agata is forced to join a convent. The Benedictine monastery of San Giorgio Stilita is rife with rancor and jealousy, illicit passions and ancient feuds. Agata remains aloof, devoting herself to the cultivation of medicinal herbs, calmed by the steady rhythms of monastic life. Through letters she stays in contact with Garson, reading all the books he sends her, and follows the news of the various factions struggling to bring unity to Italy. Though she didn't choose to enter the convent and is divided between her yearnings for purity and religiosity and her desire to be part of the world, something about the cloistered life reverberates within her. Agata is increasingly torn when she realizes that her feelings for Garson, though he is only a distant presence in her life, have eclipsed those for Lepre.--From inside front cover
The invention of law in the West by Aldo Schiavone( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Law is a specific form of social regulation distinct from religion, ethics, and even politics, and endowed with a strong and autonomous rationality. Its invention, a crucial aspect of Western history, took place in ancient Rome. Aldo Schiavone, a world-renowned classicist, reconstructs this development with clear-eyed passion, following its course over the centuries, setting out from the earliest origins and moving up to the threshold of Late Antiquity. The invention of Western law occurred against the backdrop of the Roman Empire's gradual consolidation--an age of unprecedented accumulation of power which transformed an archaic predisposition to ritual into an unrivaled technology for the control of human dealings. Schiavone offers us a closely reasoned interpretation that returns us to the primal origins of Western legal machinery and the discourse that was constructed around it--formalism, the pretense of neutrality, the relationship with political power. This is a landmark work of scholarship whose influence will be felt by classicists, historians, and legal scholars for decades."--Publisher's website

Story of My People by Edoardo Nesi( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winner of the 2011 Strega prize, Italy's most prestigious literary award, this blend of essay, social criticism, and memoir is a striking portrait of the effects of globalization on Italy's declining economy. Starting with the story of his family's textile factory in Prato, Tuscany, Edoardo Nesi recalls a time of great prosperity when textiles were king in Prato, and he was heir to a company with a decades-long history. Spending his days leraning the ins and outs of fine fabric production, his nights ensconced in the works of F. Scott Fitzgerald and David Foster Wallace, Nesi led what some might call a charmed life. However, in 2004, after more than fifty years in business, the Nesi family decided to sell their company, and in so doing, sold part of their identity as well. Story of my people is a denunciation of big business, corrupt politicians, the arrogrance of economists, and cheap manufacturing. It's a must read for anyone seeking insight into the financial crisis that's battering Europe today.--Book cover
The liberty of servants : Berlusconi's Italy by Maurizio Viroli( Book )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Italy is a country of free political institutions, yet it has become a nation of servile courtesans, with Silvio Berlusconi as their prince. This is the controversial argument that Italian political philosopher and noted Machiavelli biographer Maurizio Viroli puts forward in The Liberty of Servants. Drawing upon the classical republican conception of liberty, Viroli shows that a people can be unfree even though they are not oppressed. This condition of unfreedom arises as a consequence of being subject to the arbitrary or enormous power of men like Berlusconi, who presides over Italy with his
