Adesso se non comprava quell'asino di san Giuseppe, non sapeva che farne del suo carro e degli arnesi; e vedrete che quell'asino sara la sua ricchezza! L'asino imparo anche a tirare il carro, che era troppo alto di stanghe per lui, e gli pesava tutto sulle spalle, sicche non avrebbe durato nemmeno sei mesi, arrancando per le salite, che ci volevano le legnate di compare Luciano per mettergli un po'di fiato in corpo; e quando andava per la discesa era peggio, perche tutto il carico gli cascava addosso, e lo spingeva in modo che doveva far forza colla schiena in arco, e con quelle povere gambe rose dal fuoco, che la gente vedendolo si metteva a ridere, e quando cascava ci volevano tutti gli angeli del paradiso a farlo rialzare. Ma compare Luciano sapeva che gli portava tre quintali di roba meglio di un mulo, e il carico glielo pagavano a cinque tari il quintale.--Ogni giorno che campa l'asino di san Giuseppe son quindici tari guadagnati, diceva, e quanto a mangiare mi costa meno d'un mulo.--Alle volte la gente che saliva a piedi lemme lemme dietro il carro, vedendo quella povera bestia che puntava le zampe senza forza, e inarcava la schiena, col fiato spesso e l'occhio scoraggiato, suggeriva: --Metteteci un sasso sotto le ruote, e lasciategli ripigliar lena a quella povera bestia.--Ma compare Luciano rispondeva: --Se lo lascio fare, quindici tari al giorno non li guadagno.

Globalised neo-liberalism has produced multiple crises – social, ecological, political. In the past, crises of global order have generated large-scale social transformations, and the current crises likewise hold a transformative promise. Social movements become a crucial barometer, in signalling both the demise and rise of political formations and programs. Elite strategies, framed as crisis management, create their own disordering side-effects. Experiments in movement strategy gain greater significance, as do contending elite efforts at repressing, managing or displacing the fall-out. In this book we investigate both movements and management in the face of crisis, taking crisis and unanticipated consequences as a normal state-of-play. The book enquires into the winners and losers from crisis, and investigates the movement-management nexus as it unfolds in particular localities as well as in broader contexts. The book deals with some of the most pressing conflicts of our time, and produces a range of theoretical insights: the ubiquity of crisis is seen as not only a hallmark of social life, but a way into a different kind of social analysis. This book was published as a special issue of Globalizations.

This triumphant conclusion to this trilogy is a sumptuous fantasy of defiance and redemption. It's a fabulous read for fans of George R. R. Martin and Sylvia Day alike. Phèdre nó Delaunay is a woman touched by Kushiel's dart, chosen to forever experience pain and pleasure as one. Her path has been a strange and dangerous one, and through it all the devoted swordsman Joscelin has been at her side. Her very nature is torturous for them both, but he is sworn to her and he has never forsaken his vow: to protect and serve. Now Phèdre's plans will put his pledge to the ultimate test. For she hasn't forgotten her childhood friend Hyacinthe, and has spent ten long years searching for the key to free him from eternal indenture. But this is a bargain he struck with the gods themselves - to take Phèdre's place as a sacrifice and save a nation. However, Phèdre cannot forgive herself or the gods. She is determined to seize one last hope to redeem her friend, even if it means her death. The search will take Phèdre and Joscelin to the far side of the world, to distant courts where madness reigns and souls are currency. At the end of the their journey, they'll find a power so mighty that none dare speak its name. Kushiel's Dart , the first in this trilogy, won the Locus Award for Best First Novel. It also won the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award for Best Fantasy.
