La lucida e puntuale analisi dei principali driver di cambiamento dell'economia mondiale � il filo conduttore dell'incalzante pamphlet scritto da Eugenio Benetazzo con Gianluca Versace. Eurocracy fa luce senza cincischiare, n� perdite di tempo, sul declino delle potenze occidentali. Dopo il successo di Neurolandia, forti della loro geniale interazione, i due autori veneti vivisezionano senza piet� la mutazione genetica che sta sconvolgendo il neocapitalismo. Bombardando il lettore con notizie, dati e riscontri inediti, con uno stile discorsivo e divulgativo, Benetazzo & Versace gettano un forte fascio di luce chiarificatore sui principali fenomeni ed eventi di portata economica e non solo. Facendoci vivere in presa diretta una rutilante, sconvolgente rivoluzione, sociale ed industriale: temi cruciali come eurocrazia, banche allo sfascio, sharing economy, potenze emergenti e declinanti, crisi asiatica, storico crollo del prezzo dell'oro nero ed infine anche il golpe italiano, si susseguono in queste pagine a ritmo incalzante, non senza di colpi di scena. L'obiettivo ? Tenere incollato chi legge, al pari di un giallo che sino all'ultima pagina rende incerta la rivelazione del colpevole. Anche se, allo stesso tempo, il lettore ha timore di conoscerlo. Eurocracy dedica profonda attenzione alle grandi trasformazioni politiche, culturali ed economiche della nostra vita, per concludere con una sezione, ancora senza peli sulla lingua, incentrata sul dilemma lacerante della sostenibilit� finanziaria dei sistemi pensionistici e di welfare. Il mondo in cui viviamo si sta trasformando a velocit� supersonica: Eurocracy, rivolgendosi a tutti ma in particolare alle giovani generazioni, offre strumenti di conoscenza indispensabili per vivere e cavalcare questo cambiamento. E per non farsi travolgere impreparati.

Continua il fortunato sodalizio tra Eugenio Benetazzo e Gianluca Versace, dopo il successo di Neurolandia ed Eurocracy non poteva mancare Apocalypseuro, come in ogni prestigiosa trilogia che si rispetti. Con un taglio giornalistico ed al contempo analitico, i due poliedrici autori scandagliano lo scenario socioeconomico europeo, a fronte del recente voto francese. Il cuore di questo pamphlet rimane ancora e doverosamente la moneta unica europea, il cui progetto sovranazionale concepito due decenni fa sembra ormai volgere ad una fine ingloriosa. L'ascesa del populismo dagli States, passando per il Regno Unito ed arrivando sino in casa nostra, rappresenta un tema molto caro agli autori, che lo vivisezionano da pi� punti di osservazione. Non manca una retrospettiva con precisione chirurgica sull'economia e politica italiana, in particolar modo sulla salute del sistema bancario italiano. Apocalipseuro quindi, � uno strumento unico e prezioso per comprendere il mutamento epocale che caratterizza, in questo momento, l'economia europea e per non farsi trovare impreparati, qualora l'euro venisse definitivamente dato per spacciato. Scenario che sembra ogni giorno sempre pi� probabile ed incombente.

In the heart of Europe's current crisis, one of the continent's foremost statesmen issues a clarion call to radically remake the European Union in the mold of the United States' own federal government Europe is caught in its greatest crisis since the Second World War. The catalog of ills seems endless: an economic crisis spread through most of Europe's Mediterranean tier that has crippled Greece and driven a wedge between northern and southern Europe; terrorist attacks in Paris, Cologne, Brussels, and Nice; growing aggression from Russia in Ukraine and the Baltic states; and refugees escaping war-torn neighbors. The European Union's inability to handle any of these disasters was a driving factor in Great Britain voting to leave, and others may soon follow. The result won't just be a continent in turmoil, but also a serious threat to American and British security-the Atlantic, let alone the Channel, simply isn't big enough to keep European troubles in Europe. For everyone's sake, Europe must survive. The question is how. In Europe's Last Chance, Guy Verhofstadt-former prime minister of Belgium and current leader of the liberal faction in the European Parliament-provides the essential framework for understanding Europe today, laying bare the absurdity of a system in which each member state can veto legislation, opt in or out of the Euro, or close borders on a whim. But Verhofstadt does not just indict the European Union, he also offers a powerful vision for how the continent can change for the better. The key, argues Verhofstadt, is to reform the European Union along the lines of America's federal government: a United States of Europe strong enough to stand with the United States of America in making a better, safer world. A visionary book from one of today's luminaries of European leadership, Europe's Last Chance is a clarion call to save the European Union, one of the world's greatest chances for peace and prosperity.

There are many myths about Margaret Thatcher's extraordinary personality and political career. But what was it really like to work with her? In The Real Iron Lady: Working with Margaret Thatcher, Gillian Shephard speaks to an eclectic and distinguished range of Mrs T.'s former colleagues; all offer a unique insight into what the Iron Lady was really like at close quarters. Among them are John Major, Geoffrey Howe, Douglas Hurd and other Cabinet colleagues, alongside an ambassador and senior civil servants. In addition, prominent Conservative Party members, distinguished journalists and a leading trade unionist add their views, as well as MPs, political advisers and Downing Street staff. A French perspective is even provided by Hubert Védrine, foreign minister to erstwhile President François Mitterrand. Gillian Shephard has laced this miscellany of recollections of the Iron Lady with her own sparkling wit and acerbic comments - resulting in a fascinating close-up portrait of Britain's first woman Prime Minister. Most importantly, it is a portrait painted by the people who were with her throughout the dramas of her political career: the Falklands conflict, the miners' strike, the Brighton Bomb outrage and, eventually, her downfall. The book, with its wealth of previously unpublished material, portrays Margaret Thatcher as a woman of contrasts: courageous, kind, ferocious, feminine - and so far, unsurpassed.

Nanoparticles may be used in industrial processes, incorporated into consumer products, or applied as biomedical agents. Isotopic (radio)labeling is one of the most powerful methods for nanoparticle tracing in experimental studies. This book presents an introduction to some commonly used nanomaterials, describes various methods with which they may be radiolabeled, and provides illustrative examples of applications of the labeled particles. Finally, it discusses the use of nanomaterials in radiotherapy, the stable isotope labeling technique, and operational health and safety aspects related to the manipulation of nanoparticles in controlled areas. The book will appeal to anyone involved in nanotechnology, molecular imaging, radiochemistry, and nanomedicine.

The use of microwaves has gradually democratized itself in several scientific areas and is now a common methodology in domains as different as chemistry, protein digestion, mining, and metallurgy. Materials chemistry is one field where microwave irradiation technologies are being studied. In recent years, development of nanotechnologies has increased the interest of materials scientists in these new technologies. Microwave methodologies are now routinely used in several areas of materials science, and new advances are ongoing. This book presents recent improvements in microwave engineering of materials and nanomaterials, interactions of microwave chemistry with materials, and advances in microwave technologies in several domains such as polymer synthesis and modification, processing of various materials (ceramics, glasses, metallic alloys, zeolites), and synthesis and functionalization of diverse nanomaterials (carbon nanotubes, MOF semiconductors, inorganic nanoparticles). The book will be of interest to all students and researchers in materials science and nanosciences who want to discover or increase their knowledge of microwave technology.
