Dunque si può fare. La scelta del downshifting raccontata in ADESSO BASTA (10 edizioni) si è rivelata percorribile. “Ho tempo per cucinare, per studiare, per scrivere, navigare, perdere tempo...” scrive Simone Perotti in questo nuovo libro, che è un pamphlet sul cambiamento alle porte, su un nuovo ordine esistenziale e sociale. Contro la paura. Scoprire che si può vivere con poco, fuori dallo schema “lavoro guadagno spendo”, in un momento di grave crisi economica, può essere un sollievo personale, ma anche un progetto “politico”, da condividere. Suffragato dall’esperienza in azienda e dagli anni trascorsi nella libertà, Simone Perotti racconta “come si vive fuori”, le sue scoperte (buone e cattive), e sfata gli stereotipi placando l’animo dei tifosi e contrastando una a una le obiezioni dei più critici. Dall’analisi degli 80.000 messaggi ricevuti, l’autore ricava la prima classificazione dei downshifter italiani (i Convinti, gli Arrabbiati, gli Impegnati, gli Antitaliani, gli Accoppiati, i Sorpresi...) e una mappa generazionale delle loro paure: l’identikit dell’uomo contemporaneo in rivolta. La lotta di classe sembra finita. Forse è incominciata la lotta per la vera liberazione.

Understanding Minimalism, first published in 2005, is an introduction to the Minimalist Program - the model of syntactic theory within generative linguistics. Accessibly written, it presents the basic principles and techniques of the minimalist program, looking firstly at analyses within Government and Binding Theory (the Minimalist Program's predecessor), and gradually introducing minimalist alternatives. Minimalist models of grammar are presented in a step-by-step fashion, and the ways in which they contrast with GB analyses are clearly explained. Spanning a decade of minimalist thinking, this textbook will enable students to develop a feel for the sorts of questions and problems that minimalism invites, and to master the techniques of minimalist analysis. Over 100 exercises are provided, encouraging them to put these skills into practice. Understanding Minimalism will be an invaluable text for intermediate and advanced students of syntactic theory, and will set a solid foundation for further study and research within Chomsky's minimalist framework.

Design guru and art collector Todd Oldham shines the spotlight on the clever and warped world of artist Wayne White. From Wayne's early days as a production designer and puppet maker for the iconic TV show "Pee-Wee's Playhouse" to his unmistakable and exquisitely rendered text paintings, this monograph is a comprehensive view of Wayne White's oeuvre. Wayne is a unique wordsmith, brilliantly juxtaposing irreverent and humorous phrases over existing thrift store paintings that together create a completely original and fictional landscape. Influenced by both his upbringing in rural Tennessee and a very sophisticated knowledge of art history. Wayne White's sensibility is completely singular and distinctive. Wayne White's warped and perspectival words integrate into seemingly benign pastoral landscapes, creating a completely surreal experience. Wayne's expert painting chops and detailed attention to lighting and reflection place the "new" text directly in its "original" setting. Text paintings such as "Donald Judd was a Son of a Bitch Wrecked His Train in a Whorehouse Ditch," "Poon," and "Maybe Now I'll Get The Respect I So Richly Deserve" are a welcome departure from the more-often-than-not self-aggrandizing art world.
