Questo libro è nato da un incontro tra uomini divisi in tutto: nascita, formazione, valori. Da un lato Pino Arlacchi, uno dei massimi esperti mondiali del fenomeno mafia, dall'altro Antonino Calderone, mafioso di spicco della «famiglia» di Catania e poi grande pentito. In un rifugio messo a disposizione dalla polizia, Calderone ha deciso di ricordare. E raccontare. Quando uscì nel 1992 Gli uomini del disonore ebbe un grande successo. Faceva conoscere le gerarchie di Cosa Nostra, le sue lotte intestine, le trame diaboliche dei suoi capi, la sua storia tormentata. La storia di un mondo in cui tutti sono nello stesso tempo amici e nemici di tutti, professano lealtà e sono pronti all'inganno più subdolo, progettano congiure e imboscate, tradiscono e uccidono senza rimorsi. Era la prima volta che la mafia veniva descritta dal suo interno, la prima volta che veniva descritta la vita quotidiana dell'uomo d'onore, le sue amicizie, gli odi, gli affetti di un'esistenza dominata dalla paura di essere uccisi e dalla necessità di ammazzare. Il libro viene oggi ripubblicato con una nuova postfazione di Pino Arlacchi. Lo studioso, tra gli artefici della legislazione antimafia italiana degli anni ottanta, autore del progetto esecutivo della Dia, ripercorre passo dopo passo la sfida a Cosa Nostra, condotta in prima persona insieme a Chinnici, Falcone e Borsellino: dal tempo degli omicidi di La Torre e Dalla Chiesa alle confessioni di Buscetta, dagli anni della strategia stragista a oggi.

The nexus between terrorism and organised crime consists of a strategic alliance between two non-state actors who are able to exploit illegal markets, threaten the security of individuals, and influence policy-making on a global level. Recent Europol reports have pointed towards the importance of studying the links between organised crime and terrorist groups, and have underlined that the nature and extent of these connections have seldom been addressed from an academic perspective. Considering the danger that both organised crime and terrorism currently pose to the world, the collusion between these two phenomena is of urgent contemporary interest. Basing itself on geographical case-studies, this book contributes to the existing literature in three ways: by enriching the empirical knowledge on the nature of the crime-terror nexus and its evolution; by exploring the impact of the nexus within different economic, political and societal contexts; and by expanding on its theoretical conceptualization. This book was originally published as a special issue of Global Crime.

Secrets of Life and Death is the first book to focus on women whose lives are entangled in the workings of the mafia. Drawing on courtroom testimonies, interviews, contemporary journalism and recent research, Siebert cuts through the mafia's myth of honouring women to expose the harsh realities for women living with, and fighting against, the mafia. With careful attention to the socio-economic realities of southern Italy, she looks at what it actually means to live in the mafia's shadow. She explores the gains and costs of being a mafia wife in New York or Palermo, probing the emotions underlying women's mafia loyalties and the sexual lure of the mafioso. In vivid and often harrowing detail, Siebert examines women's growing resistance to a culture of death and dangerously intensified masculinity. Alongside the public stories of the wives of murdered judges, policemen and politicians, she places the extraordinary accounts of women who have taken a stand against their own mafia upbringing or have spoken out as witnesses, at enormous personal cost. It is women's courageous initiatives, Siebert shows, which have led to the development of local anti-mafia organizations and recent mass protests in the face of violent intimidation. Poignant and incisive, Secrets of Life and Death breaks the code of silence to tell a story that is both haunting and inspiring.

Okonkwo is the greatest warrior alive, famous throughout West Africa. But when he accidentally kills a clansman, things begin to fall apart. Then Okonkwo returns from exile to find missionaries and colonial governors have arrived in the village. With his world thrown radically off-balance he can only hurtle towards tragedy. Chinua Achebe's stark novel reshaped both African and world literature. This arresting parable of a proud but powerless man witnessing the ruin of his people begins Achebe's landmark trilogy of works chronicling the fate of one African community, continued in Arrow of God and No Longer at Ease.
