[...] As an artist, I love love LOVE the art in this book, I think its not only beautiful, but perfect for children. My son spent a lot of time just studying every colorful page. We read it twice in the first sitting because he was so happy! He's not yet 1, so getting him to sit still for story time is tough, and this book was such a hit he sat through it with nothing but a big smile and lots of pointing to the stuff he liked on the pages. I highly recommend this book :) Get it get it get it!""-Amazon Customer Review "Written in a very simple way but with a profound message for both adults and kids."-Amazon Customer Review "I LOVED it.

A groundbreaking major bestseller in Italy, Gomorrah is Roberto Saviano's gripping nonfiction account of the decline of Naples under the rule of the Camorra, an organized crime network with a large international reach and stakes in construction, high fashion, illicit drugs, and toxic-waste disposal. Known by insiders as "the System," the Camorra affects cities and villages along the Neapolitan coast, and is the deciding factor in why Campania, for instance, has the highest murder rate in all of Europe and whycancer levels there have skyrocketed in recent years. Saviano tells of huge cargoes of Chinese goods that are shipped to Naples and then quickly distributed unchecked across Europe. He investigates the Camorra's control of thousands of Chinese factories contracted to manufacture fashion goods, legally and illegally, for distribution around the world, and relates the chilling details of how the abusive handling of toxic waste is causing devastating pollution not only for Naples but also China and Somalia. In pursuit of his subject, Saviano worked as an assistant at a Chinese textile manufacturer, a waiter at a Camorra wedding, and on a construction site. A native of the region, he recalls seeing his first murder at the age of fourteen, and how his own father, a doctor, suffered a brutal beating for trying to aid an eighteen-year-old victim who had been left for dead in the street. Gomorrah is a bold and important work of investigative writing that holds global significance, one heroic young man's impassioned story of a place under the rule of a murderous organization.

With the Christmas season upon him, Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson of Edinburgh's finest is gearing up socially—kicking things off with a week of sex and drugs in Amsterdam. There are some sizable flies in the ointment, though: a missing wife and child, a nagging cocaine habit, some painful below-the-belt eczema, and a string of demanding extramarital affairs. The last thing Robertson needs is a messy, racially fraught murder, even if it means overtime—and the opportunity to clinch the promotion he craves. Then there's that nutritionally demanding (and psychologically acute) intestinal parasite in his gut. Yes, things are going badly for this utterly corrupt tribune of the law, but in an Irvine Welsh novel nothing is ever so bad that it can't get a whole lot worse. . . .In Bruce Robertson Welsh has created one of the most compellingly misanthropic characters in contemporary fiction, in a dark and disturbing and often scabrously funny novel about the abuse of everything and everybody. "Welsh writes with a skill, wit and compassion that amounts to genius. He is the best thing that has happened to British writing in decades."—Sunday Times [London] "[O]ne of the most significant writers in Britain. He writes with style, imagination, wit, and force, and in a voice which those alienated by much current fiction clearly want to hear."—Times Literary Supplement "Welsh writes with such vile, relentless intensity that he makes Louis-Ferdinand Céline, the French master of defilement, look like Little Miss Muffet. "—Courtney Weaver, The New York Times Book Review "The corrupt Edinburgh cop-antihero of Irvine Welsh's best novel since Trainspotting is an addictive personality in another sense: so appallingly powerful is his character that it's hard to put the book down....[T]he rapid-fire rhythm and pungent dialect of the dialogue carry the reader relentlessly toward the literally filthy denouement. "—Village Voice Literary Supplement, "Our 25 Favorite Books of 1998" "Welsh excels at making his trash-spewing bluecoat peculiarly funny and vulnerable—and you will never think of the words 'Dame Judi Dench' in the same way ever again. [Grade:] A-. "—Charles Winecoff, Entertainment Weekly

Nel settembre del 2015, il Dipartimento Istituto Italiano di Studi Orientali e l’Istituto Confucio di Roma, con il patrocinio e la collaborazione del Ministero dell’Istruzione, dell’Università e della Ricerca, hanno organizzato un convegno nazionale dedicato a La didattica del cinese nella scuola secondaria di secondo grado: esperienze e prospettive. Obiettivo dell’iniziativa era creare un momento di confronto e discussione per condividere ed esaminare le numerose esperienze didattiche della lingua e cultura cinese che, dal 2004, si andavano sperimentando in scuole secondarie di diverso indirizzo e collocazione geografica. Da più parti si sollecitava l’urgenza di un coordinamento nazionale in grado di definire con chiarezza obiettivi, specificità e programmi per l’insegnamento della lingua e della cultura cinese nella scuola italiana. Sentita era anche la necessità di un confronto su metodologie, materiali e strumenti didattici. Il volume raccoglie i risultati di quelle giornate, ventitré saggi a testimonianza della sperimentazione e del lavoro didattico compiuti nelle scuole italiane. L’auspicio è che questa pubblicazione possa contribuire allo sviluppo di ulteriori sinergie propulsive per una didattica della lingua e della cultura cinese sempre più efficace e condivisa. Alessandra Brezzi è Direttrice del Dipartimento Istituto Italiano di Studi Orientali di Sapienza Università di Roma, dove insegna lingua e letteratura cinese. I suoi ambiti di ricerca sono la letteratura cinese di viaggio e la ricezione della letteratura italiana in Cina all’inizio del XX secolo. Tiziana Lioi è docente a contratto di lingua e traduzione cinese e si occupa di didattica del cinese nelle scuole italiane e dei contatti culturali e letterari fra Cina e Italia nella prima metà del XX secolo. Fra le sue pubblicazioni un manuale per l’apprendimento della scrittura cinese edito da Hoepli.
