The organized crime group that dominates much of the socioeconomic life of contemporary Naples, the Camorra, is organized by kin and geography, and it is notoriously the most violent, fractious, and disorganized mafia in Italy. The Camorra controls local extortion rackets, the drug and counterfeit trades, and other legal and illicit activities as well as wielding substantial political influence throughout Naples and its environs. Felia Allum has been researching the Camorra for twenty years, and in The Invisible Camorra she reveals a surprising alteration in Camorra behavior when operatives live outside the Neapolitan base. When gang members move away from Naples, having been forced out by intense policing and gang competition, they are attracted by business opportunities that, on the whole, fit in with their usual activities. When they move to other parts of Western Europe and are therefore no longer criminals simply by virtue of "mafia association" as they are in Italy, they become largely invisible. Gang members avoid the spectacular deployment of violence, they merge quietly into local life, they keep themselves to themselves, and, when necessary, use legitimate local actors such as lawyers and accountants to further their economic well-being. Allum has constructed a meticulous description and analysis of Camorra activities abroad. To build accounts of the Camorra in Germany and the Netherlands, France, Spain, and the United Kingdom, she has interviewed investigating magistrates, police officers, and confessed criminals; done substantial mining of Italian and European police data; and made extensive use of judicial investigations, court records and transcripts as well as of journalistic accounts. The result is the first systematic analysis of the overseas activities of this major criminal organization.

Do adoptions provide children for families or families for children? This book analyzes the complex interactions between adopters and adoptees using historical and current data. Who are the preferred parents and children, both domestically and internationally? How do the types of adoptions-domestic adoptions, private and public through the foster care system, and intercountry adoptions-differ? Domestic trends include a shift to open adoptions and a notable increase in "hard to place", foster care adoptions-typically older, siblings, minorities, with physical, educational, or emotional challenges. Adoptive parents are increasingly all ages (including grandparents); all types of marriages (single, married and same-sex couples); all income levels, with subsidized adoptions for children who would otherwise remain in foster or institutional care. Intercountry adoptions have followed waves, pushed by wars and political or economic crises in the sending country, and pulled by the increasing demand from the U. S. Currently there is a decrease in intercountry adoptions from Asia and Eastern Europe with a possible fifth wave from Africa with the greatest number from Ethiopia. This is a resource for family sociologists, demographers, social workers, advocates for children and adoptive parents, as well as those who are interested in the continuing research in adoptions.

Estratto: ...si puo cucire a macchina, ma si cuce pure ancora a mano. Per l'illuminazione si adoperano, in concorrenza, stearina, olio, petrolio, gas, elettricita (1). 16. In ogni caso occorre dunque determinare quale mezzo convien usare, Un impresario ha da trasportare ghiaia dalla cava in altro luogo. Secondo i casi, a lui giovera usare carri tratti da animali o costruire una piccola ferrovia. Un altro ha da segare legna; secondo i casi, la fara segare da uomini, o impiantera una segheria meccanica. In questi ed altri casi simili, la decisione dell'impresario sara determinata non solo da considerazioni tecuiche, ma ben anche da considerazioni economiche. Per potere scegliere fra le varie vie occorre conoscerle. Principiamo dunque dal considerarne una qualsiasi e studiamola. 17. I capitali (1).--Supponiamo di voler fare il bilancio di un molino mosso da una ruota idraulica. Si produce farina e crusca. I principali elementi della produzione sono: il corso d'acqua--il fabbricato del molino--la ruota idraulica, le trasmissioni, le macine, ecc.--arnesi vari, apparcchi d'illuminazione, ecc.--l'olio da dare alle macchine, altre materie per l'illuminazione, per la pulizia, e per molti altri usi--il lavoro del mugnaio e dei suoi garzoni--il denaro che circola per provvedere alle spese--il grano che e macinato. 18. Dobbiamo ordinare un poco quegli elementi cotanto vari e diversi, e farne una classificaziono, la quale, come tutte le classificazioni, sara in parte arbitraria. In realta e l'energia, la forza meccanica del corso d'acqua, che e trasformata nella produzione; ma nel fenomeno economico questo elemento della produzione si...
