Gomorrah by Roberto Saviano( Book )

115 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in 20 languages and held by 1,857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A major bestseller in Italy, this is a heroic young man's impassioned account of the decline of Naples under the rule of the Camorra, an organized crime network with a large international reach and stakes in construction, high fashion, illicit drugs, and toxic-waste disposal. Known by insiders as "the System," the Camorra affects cities and villages along the Neapolitan coast, and is the deciding factor in why Campania, for instance, has the highest murder rate in all of Europe and why cancer levels there have skyrocketed in recent years. Author Saviano, who saw his first murder at age 14, worked under cover to investigate the Camorra's control of Chinese factories contracted to manufacture fashion goods, legally and illegally, for distribution around the world, and relates how the abusive handling of toxic waste is causing devastating pollution not only for Naples but also China and Somalia.--From publisher description

Gomorra : dans l'empire de la camorra by Roberto Saviano( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in French and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Ce ne sont pas les camorristes qui choisissent les affaires, mais les affaires qui choisissent les camorristes. La logique de l'entreprenariat criminel et la vision des parrains sont empreintes d'un ultralibéralisme radical. Les règles sont dictées et imposées par les affaires, par l'obligation de faire du profit et de vaincre la concurrence. Le reste ne compte pas. Le reste n'existe pas. Le pouvoir absolu de vie ou de mort, lancer un produit, conquérir des parts de marché, investir dans des secteurs de pointe : tout a un prix, finir en prison ou mourir. Détenir le pouvoir, dix ans, un an, une heure, peu importe la durée : mais vivre, commander pour de bon, voilà ce qui compte. Vaincre dans l'arène du marché et pouvoir fixer le soleil.' Gomorra explore Naples et la Campanie dominées par la criminalité organisée, sur fond de guerres entre clans rivaux et de trafics en tout genre : contrefaçon, armes, drogue et déchets toxiques. C'est ainsi que le Système, comme le désignent ses affiliés, accroît ses profits, conforte sa toute-puissance et se pose en avant-garde criminelle de l'économie mondialisée. Mais c'est aussi l'histoire intime de Roberto Saviano, qui est né sur ces terres et a choisi l'écriture pour mener son combat contre la camorra."
CeroCeroCero : ćomo la cocaína gobierna el mundo by Roberto Saviano( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Escribir sobre la cocaína --en palabras de Roberto Saviano-- es como consumirla. Cada vez quieres más noticias, más información, y las que encuentras son suculentas, ya no puedes prescindir de ellas. Eres addicted. Aún cuando remiten a un esquema general que ya has comprendido, esas historias fascinan por sus detalles. Delante ves el listón de la adicción, que no hace más que subir, y ruegas para no entrar nunca en crisis de abstinencia. Por eso sigo recopilándolas hasta la náusea, más de lo que sería necesario, sin poder detenerme. Son fogonazos que estallan cegadores. Ensordecedores puñetazos en el estómago. Pero ¿por qué ese ruido sólo lo oigo yo? Cuanto más desciendo en los círculos blanqueados de la coca, más me percato de que la gente no sabe. Hay un río que corre bajo las grandes ciudades, un río que nace en Sudamérica, pasa por Africa y se ramifica hacia todas partes. Hombres y mujeres pasean por la Via del Corso y por los bulevares parisinos, se reúnen en Times Square y caminan con la cabeza gacha por las avenidas londinenses. ¿No oyen nada? ¿Cómo lo hacen para soportar todo ese ruido?"

La paranza dei bambini : romanzo by Roberto Saviano( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in Italian and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dieci ragazzini in scooter sfrecciano contromano alla conquista di Napoli. Quindicenni dai soprannomi innocui -- Maraja, Pesce Moscio, Dentino, Lollipop, Drone --, scarpe firmate, famiglie normali e il nome delle ragazze tatuato sulla pelle. Adolescenti che non hanno domani e nemmeno ci credono. Non temono il carcere né la morte, perché sanno che l'unica possibilità è giocarsi tutto, subito. Sanno che "i soldi li ha chi se li prende". E allora, via, sui motorini, per andare a prenderseli, i soldi, ma soprattutto il potere. La paranza dei bambini narra la controversa ascesa di una paranza -- un gruppo di fuoco legato alla Camorra -- e del suo capo, il giovane Nicolas Fiorillo. Appollaiati sui tetti della città, imparano a sparare con pistole semiautomatiche e AK-47 mirando alle parabole e alle antenne, poi scendono per le strade a seminare il terrore in sella ai loro scooter. A poco a poco ottengono il controllo dei quartieri, sottraendoli alle paranze avversarie, stringendo alleanze con vecchi boss in declino. Paranza è nome che viene dal mare, nome di barche che vanno a caccia di pesci da ingannare con la luce. E come nella pesca a strascico la paranza va a pescare persone da ammazzare. Qui si racconta di ragazzini guizzanti di vita come pesci, di adolescenze "ingannate dalla luce", e di morti che producono morti. Roberto Saviano entra implacabile nella realtà che ha sempre indagato e ci immerge nell'autenticità di storie immaginate con uno straordinario romanzo di innocenza e sopraffazione. Crudo, violento, senza scampo"--

Zero Zero Zero Wie Kokain die Welt beherrscht by Roberto Saviano( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bestsellerul său din 2006, Gomora, i‑a adus lui Roberto Saviano faima mondială, dar și o condamnare la moarte din partea membrilor crimei organizate. A fost obligat, de atunci, să trăiască sub pază armată douăzeci și patru de ore din douăzeci și patru. Între timp a colaborat cu cele mai importante instituții anti‑drog din lume, iar rezultatul e ZeroZeroZero, o carte devastatoare, care face pentru întreaga planetă ceea ce a făcut Gomora pentru doar o regiune italiană. Cocaina, praful alb, cu o puritate 000, este cea mai puternică dintre afacerile multinaționale de astăzi. Pe seama ei se fac în câțiva ani averi pe care firme uriașe le pot obține în decenii întregi. Consumatorii sunt peste tot, în toate țările, în toate mediile, poate chiar în propria ta familie, iar vânzătorii, cei mai nemiloși care au existat vreodată, se infiltrează diabolic prin orice fisură. Acum totul începe în Mexic și se întinde ca o ciumă, imposibil de oprit, lăsând milioane de vieți distruse în cale. "Sunt multe locuri din lume fără spitale, internet, apă curentă. Dar nu și fără cocaină." Africa e deja albă, Rusia e albă, Terra întreagă albește văzând cu ochii. Cine o cumpără, cine o vinde, cine ucide în numele cocainei, cine se luptă cu traficanții? Saviano are mai multe răspunsuri decât oricine altcineva. Și le dă într‑un carte superb scrisă, într‑un stil viu, dinamic, halucinant și precis ca poezia pe alocuri, mereu pasionant. Te informează, te înfioară, te ține cu sufletul la gură pagină de pagină
