Grazie alla lungimiranza di Adriano Olivetti negli anni 1950 e 1960 l’Italia sviluppò una propria industria dei grandi computer elettronici, ottenendo eccellenti risultati con la gamma “Elea”, avanzata e competitiva con i concorrenti americani. La scomparsa prematura dei creatori dell’impresa e l’insipienza del mondo imprenditoriale e finanziario italiano pose fine a quella straordinaria intrapresa. Con gli stessi progettisti italiani, General Electric, erede del sogno Olivetti, realizzò in Italia gli elaboratori GE 115 e GE 130, distribuiti in tutto il mondo. L’Autore di questa autobiografia, allora giovane progettista al lavoro nei grandi centri di ricerca di Borgolombardo e Pregnana, descrive azienda, macchine e protagonisti di quel periodo d’oro dell’elettronica informatica italiana. Il testo si pone come la continuazione, ma a ritroso nel tempo, del libro, anch’esso autobiografico, che l’Autore scrisse sulla Fiat degli anni 1976-1996 (“Fiat - I segreti di un’epoca” reperibile come e-book). Usando il medesimo approccio narrativo, non si esime dal toccare anche temi scottanti, denunciando senza remore le debolezze dell’oligarchia finanziaria del Paese che condusse all’abbandono del settore, e delinea i grandi temi socio-economici del tempo, dal “miracolo economico” con l’emigrazione di massa dal sud e dalle montagne, fino all’ “autunno caldo” del 1969. Si spinge fino a valutare quanti guai avrebbero potuto essere risparmiati all’Italia se l’illuminata visione di un capitalismo etico e moderno, come propugnato da Adriano Olivetti, avesse prevalso, invece della miope speculazione di industriali e finanzieri e del parassitismo dirigistico di sindacalisti e politici. Il ciclo storico si conclude idealmente con l’ultimo capitolo che racconta della cessione della telefonia Olivetti, che l’Autore visse nel 1996 da vice-presidente dell’azienda d’Ivrea guidata da Carlo De Benedetti, ormai prossima alla fine.

This book is an authentic historical document, supported by extensive analytical information, in which former Fiat top manager Giorgio Garuzzo passionately recounts his experience within Fiat between 1976 and 1996. It is a narrative from the inside that sheds new light on events that have remained cloaked in mystery: the arrival and departure of Carlo De Benedetti, the “march of the forty thousand”, the sacking of Vittorio Ghidella, the clashes between Umberto Agnelli and Cesare Romiti, the Group’s involvement in the “clean hands” scandal, the role of Gianni Agnelli and his relationships with his brother and Cesare Romiti and the intervention of Mediobanca. Garuzzo discusses the issues connected with the range of cars and marques, touching on major themes of national or international relevance that were unrelated to Fiat but nonetheless conditioned its activities: terrorism and the unmanageability of the factories, inflation, the devaluation of the lira, the role of the trade unions and the General Confederation of Italian Industry, Japanese competition and European integration.

Set in a small and tight-knit community of ‘honest criminals’ in a remote part of Russia, this is a tale of an extreme boyhood – exotic, violent and completely unique. Told from the perspective of a boy gaining his ‘education’ as a member of the Mafia-like Urkas in Transnistria, we get a glimpse inside the strict codes of honour and the rituals of this bizarre community. Besides having a deep distrust of outsiders – especially the police – the community is split into ‘honest’ and ‘dishonest’ criminals and crime is all-pervasive. Even their youngest children are taught to understand violence and when it is appropriate to use it. By the age of six, Nicolai Lilin is given his first ‘pike knife’ by an uncle and by the age of twelve he has been convicted of attempted murder.

Three book editors, jaded by reading far too many crackpot manuscripts on the mystic and the occult, are inspired by an extraordinary conspiracy story told to them by a strange colonel to have some fun. They start feeding random bits of information into a powerful computer capable of inventing connections between the entries, thinking they are creating nothing more than an amusing game, but then their game starts to take over, the deaths start mounting, and they are forced into a frantic search for the truth

Stevens takes readers on a harrowing descent into the mind of a mass murderer in this eerily realistic serial-killer novel. At the center of this gripping epic novel of mass murder, pursuit, and psychological terror is Thomas Bishop, a psychotic young killer who believes he is the son of Caryl Chessman, who was executed for rape in California amid intense controversy. Subjected to unmerciful physical and mental torture from an early age, Bishop kills his mother at the age of ten and is placed in an institution for the criminally insane. He grows to manhood knowing the outside world only through a television screen. At twenty-five, he succeeds in a brilliant escape and change of identity and begins to move across the country, murdering women in particularly gruesome ways. Pursued by reporters, police, and the mob, Bishop manages to elude them all, and the search for him becomes the greatest manhunt in US history.The chilling denouement will hold readers spellbound until the shattering, unforgettable conclusion.
