Gomorrah by Roberto Saviano( Book )
93 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 2,051 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 : viaggio nell'impero economico e nel sogno di dominio della camorra by Roberto Saviano( Book )
35 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in Italian and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nell'aprile 2006 il mondo editoriale italiano è stato sconvolto da un bestseller clamoroso e inaspettato, trasformatosi in poco tempo in un terremoto culturale, sociale e civile: Gomorra. Un libro anomalo in cui Roberto Saviano racconta la camorra come nessuno aveva mai fatto prima, unendo il rigore del ricercatore, il coraggio del giornalista d'inchiesta, la passione dello scrittore e, soprattutto, l'amore doloroso per una città da parte di chi vi è nato e cresciuto.

Slavery Inc. : the untold story of international sex trafficking by Lydia Cacho( Book )
4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Illegal, inhuman, and impervious to recession, there is one trade that continues to thrive, just out of sight. The international sex trade criss-crosses the entire globe, a sinister network made up of criminal masterminds, local handlers, corrupt policemen, wilfully blind politicians, eager consumers, and countless hapless women and children. In this ground-breaking work of investigative reporting, the celebrated journalist Lydia Cacho follows the trail of the traffickers and their victims from Mexico to Turkey, Thailand to Iraq, Georgia to the UK, to expose the trade's hidden links with the tourist industry, internet pornography, drugs and arms smuggling, the selling of body organs, money laundering, and even terrorism. This is an underground economy in which a sex slave can be bought for the price of a gun, but Cacho's powerful first-person interviews with mafiosi, pimps, prostitutes, and those who managed to escape from captivity makes it impossible to ignore the terrible human cost of this lucrative exchange. Shocking and sobering, Slavery Inc, is an exceptional book, both for the colossal scope of its enquiry, and for the tenacious bravery with which Cacho pursues the truth

"'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."
