Il fascino dei motori e il sogno di diventare pilota, cullato fin da ragazzino. Gli anni difficili della guerra, le gare con l'Isotta Fraschini e l'Alfa Romeo. La fondazione della Scuderia Ferrari, i successi, i leggendari piloti. Fino alla morte del giovanissimo figlio Dino, che renderà per sempre «terribile» ogni sua gioia. Enzo Ferrari racconta aneddoti e sentimenti in questo documento eccezionale per tutti gli appassionati di storia dell'automobilismo (e di storia tout court). Un'autobiografia uscita nei primi anni Sessanta, quando «il Drake» era già l'italiano più famoso al mondo, aggiornata nei due decenni successivi e arricchita, in questa edizione, dal racconto del figlio Piero che completa con particolari inediti gli ultimi anni di vita del Grande Vecchio.

“To nearly every motoring enthusiast the name Ferrari means, and has meant for some years, the essence of motoring in the truly grand manner, the art and science of automobile engineering at its greatest. This book is the autobiography of Enzo Ferrari, the man who has been responsible for the cars which have achieved more in a shorter time than almost any other marque. It is the autobiography of a man who has known the great and who deserves his own share of greatness in motoring and motor racing history... A remarkable book, this; as well as throwing a clear and fascinating light on the drivers, the teams, the manufacturers, the problems of racing car team management, it deals also—in humorous fashion—with the people who buy Ferraris. And, perhaps unintentionally, Ferrari has drawn a clear portrait of himself.” (1962 – Stirling Moss). - Originally published in Italy as Le Mie Gioie Terribili

After reflecting on his support of a losing Democrat for president, George Soros steps back to revisit his views on why George Bush's policies around the world fall short in the arenas most important to Soros: democracy, human rights and open society. As a survivor of the Holocaust and a life-long proponent of free expression, Soros understands the meaning of freedom. And yet his differences with George Bush, another proponent of freedom, are profound. In this powerful essay Soros spells out his views and how they differ from the president's. He reflects on why the Democrats may have lost the high ground on these values issues and how they might reclaim it. As he has in his recent books, On Globalization and The Bubble of American Supremacy, Soros uses facts, anecdotes, personal experience and philosophy to illuminate a major topic in a way that both enlightens and inspires.

When he resigned last June, Justice Stevens was the third longest serving Justice in American history (1975-2010)--only Justice William O. Douglas, whom Stevens succeeded, and Stephen Field have served on the Court for a longer time. In Five Chiefs, Justice Stevens captures the inner workings of the Supreme Court via his personal experiences with the five Chief Justices--Fred Vinson, Earl Warren, Warren Burger, William Rehnquist, and John Roberts--that he interacted with. He reminisces of being a law clerk during Vinson's tenure; a practicing lawyer for Warren; a circuit judge and junior justice for Burger; a contemporary colleague of Rehnquist; and a colleague of current Chief Justice John Roberts. Along the way, he will discuss his views of some the most significant cases that have been decided by the Court from Vinson, who became Chief Justice in 1946 when Truman was President, to Roberts, who became Chief Justice in 2005. Packed with interesting anecdotes and stories about the Court, Five Chiefs is an unprecedented and historically significant look at the highest court in the United States.

The stories of Monza and Formula 1 are inseparable, two examples of motor sport par excellence that come together once a year, cross each other's paths and bring to life pages of history rich in fascination. In this book, enthusiasts will find accounts, but above all the pictures covering the most significant moments in a long journey that began way back in 1949 to reach the present day, with the exploits of the stars of the wheel and the best single seaters ever. To cover once again this exciting partnership is to immerse oneself in drivers, technicians, cars and the spectators - those of Monza are unique and incomparable - triumphs and tragedies. Hundreds of mostly previously unpublished pictures in colour and black and white comprise the structure of this volume, which just has to be in the libraries of all Formula 1 enthusiasts.

Jan Kozma's translation of Marianna Sirca is the near-literal rendering of a novel written by Grazia Deledda (1871-1936), the celebrated Italian author from Sardinia who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1926. Almost all of Deledda's stories treat the lives, loves, tragedies, and triumphs of the author's native land - the remote, isolated, and often forbidding island of Sardinia. This new translation includes an introduction that highlights the salient episodes of Grazia Deledda's life and which situates Marianna Sirca both literarily within the author's opera omnia and as part of the general literary trends of the early European twentieth century. Jan Kozma presents the homonymous protagonist, Marianna Sirca, as one of the great literary precursors of the liberated, independent, modern woman - an ironic twist, given the repressive culture in which Marianna lives. The translator also provides numerous explanatory foot-notes that elucidate particular arcane aspects of Sardinian life in the late nineteenth century. Marianna Sirca is a 30-year-old woman of inherited wealth who lives in Nuoro, Sardinia. Because of her strong will and sense of independence, Marianna is the family "black sheep" - refusing to be married off to a distant relative in a social arrangement of convenience. Instead Marianna becomes involved with Simone Sole, a younger man who was a servant in the Sirca household in his youth and who is now an outlaw - wanted for banditry. Against the will of her entire family, the lovers plan to marry, but at Marianna's insistence only after Simone "gets right with the law." The novel traces the story of these two emarginated lovers through various twists and turns, ending with a typical Deleddan flourish that leaves the reader with a real awareness of Sardinian, social mores, values, attitudes, and tradition.
