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.

The story began in 1918, when Gustavo Arellano's great-grandfather and grandfather arrived in the United States, only to be met with flying potatoes. They ran, and hid, and then went to work in Orange County's citrus groves, where, eventually, thousands of fellow Mexican villagers joined them. Gustavo was born sixty years later, the son of a tomato canner who dropped out of school in the ninth grade and an illegal immigrant who snuck into this country in the trunk of a Chevy. Meanwhile, Orange County changed radically, from a bucolic paradise of orange groves to the land where good Republicans go to die, American Christianity blossoms, and way too many bad television shows are green-lit. Part personal narrative, part cultural history, Orange County is the outrageous and true story of the man behind the wildly popular and controversial column ¡Ask a Mexican! and the locale that spawned him. It is a tale of growing up in an immigrant enclave in a crime-ridden neighborhood, but also in a promised land, a place that has nourished America's soul and Gustavo's family, both in this country and back in Mexico, for a century. Nationally bestselling author, syndicated columnist, and the spiciest voice of the Mexican-American community, Gustavo Arellano delivers the hilarious and poignant follow-up to ¡Ask a Mexican!, his critically acclaimed debut. Orange County not only weaves Gustavo's family story with the history of Orange County and the modern Mexican-immigrant experience but also offers sharp, caliente insights into a wide range of political, cultural, and social issues.

We know everything and nothing about China. We know that China is changing so fast that the maps in Shanghai need to be redrawn every two weeks. We know that China has brought 300 million people from agricultural backwardness into modernity in just thirty years, and that its impact on the global economy is growing at unprecedented speed. We have an image of China as a dictatorship; a nationalist empire that threatens its neighbors and global peace. But how many people know about the debates raging within China? What do we really know about the kind of society China wants to become? What ideas are motivating its citizens? We can name America's neo-cons and the religious right, but cannot name Chinese writers, thinkers, or journalists—what is the future they dream of for their country, or for the world? Because China's rise— like the fall of Rome or the British Raj—will echo down generations to come, these are the questions we increasingly need to ask. Mark Leonard asks us to forget everything we thought we knew about China and start again. He introduces us to the thinkers who are shaping China's wide open future and opens up a hidden world of intellectual debate that is driving a new Chinese revolution and changing the face of the world.
