Ever since its first publication in 1992, The End of History and the Last Man has provoked controversy and debate. Francis Fukuyama's prescient analysis of religious fundamentalism, politics, scientific progress, ethical codes, and war is as essential for a world fighting fundamentalist terrorists as it was for the end of the Cold War. Now updated with a new afterword, The End of History and the Last Man is a modern classic.

'I was twelve years old the first time I walked on water . . .' So begins Mr Vertigo, the story of Walt, an irrepressible orphan from the Mid-West. Under the tutelage of the mesmerising Master Yehudi, Walt is taken back to the mysterious house on the plains to prepare not only for the ability to fly, but also for the stardom that will accompany it. At the same time a delighted race through 1920s Americana and a richly allusive parable, Mr Vertigo is a compelling, magical novel - a work of true originality by a writer at the height of his powers. 'A virtuoso piece of storytelling by a master of the modern American fable.' The Independent

Cosa succede se un'intera generazione, nata borghese e allevata nella convinzione di poter migliorare – o nella peggiore delle ipotesi mantenere – la propria posizione nella piramide sociale, scopre all'improvviso che i posti sono limitati, che quelli che considerava diritti sono in realtà privilegi e che non basteranno né l'impegno né il talento a difenderla dal terribile spettro del declassamento? Cosa succede quando la classe agiata si scopre di colpo disagiata?La risposta sta davanti ai nostri occhi quotidianamente: un esercito di venti-trenta-quarantenni, decisi a rimandare l'età adulta collezionando titoli di studio e lavori temporanei in attesa che le promesse vengano finalmente mantenute, vittime di una strana «disforia di classe» che li porta a vivere al di sopra dei loro mezzi, a dilapidare i patrimoni familiari per ostentare uno stile di vita che testimoni, almeno in apparenza, la loro appartenenza alla borghesia.In un percorso che va da Goldoni a Marx e da Keynes a Kafka, leggendo l'economia come fosse letteratura e la letteratura come fosse economia, Raffaele Alberto Ventura formula un'autocritica impietosa di questa classe sociale, «troppo ricca per rinunciare alle proprie aspirazioni, ma troppo povera per realizzarle». E soprattutto smonta il ruolo delle istituzioni laiche che continuiamo a venerare: la scuola, l'università, l'industria culturale e il social web. Pubblicato in rete nel 2015, Teoria della classe disagiata è diventato un piccolo culto carbonaro prima di essere totalmente riveduto e completato per questa prima edizione definitiva.

When Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address in 1863, he had broader aims than simply rallying a war-weary nation. Lincoln realized that the Civil War had taken on a wider significance—that all of Europe and Latin America was watching to see whether the United States, a beleaguered model of democracy, would indeed “perish from the earth.” In The Cause of All Nations, distinguished historian Don H. Doyle explains that the Civil War was viewed abroad as part of a much larger struggle for democracy that spanned the Atlantic Ocean, and had begun with the American and French Revolutions. While battles raged at Bull Run, Antietam, and Gettysburg, a parallel contest took place abroad, both in the marbled courts of power and in the public square. Foreign observers held widely divergent views on the war—from radicals such as Karl Marx and Giuseppe Garibaldi who called on the North to fight for liberty and equality, to aristocratic monarchists, who hoped that the collapse of the Union would strike a death blow against democratic movements on both sides of the Atlantic. Nowhere were these monarchist dreams more ominous than in Mexico, where Napoleon III sought to implement his Grand Design for a Latin Catholic empire that would thwart the spread of Anglo-Saxon democracy and use the Confederacy as a buffer state. Hoping to capitalize on public sympathies abroad, both the Union and the Confederacy sent diplomats and special agents overseas: the South to seek recognition and support, and the North to keep European powers from interfering. Confederate agents appealed to those conservative elements who wanted the South to serve as a bulwark against radical egalitarianism. Lincoln and his Union agents overseas learned to appeal to many foreigners by embracing emancipation and casting the Union as the embattled defender of universal republican ideals, the “last best hope of earth.” A bold account of the international dimensions of America's defining conflict, The Cause of All Nations frames the Civil War as a pivotal moment in a global struggle that would decide the survival of democracy.
