«Ho appena terminato un grande romanzo a cui ho lavorato per quasi dieci anni...» scriveva nel 1960 Vasilij Grossman, scrittore noto in patria sin dagli anni Trenta (e fra i primi corrispondenti di guerra a entrare, al seguito dell’Armata Rossa, nell’inferno di Treblinka). Non sapeva, Grossman, che in quel momento il manoscritto della sua immensa epopea (che aveva la dichiarata ambizione di essere il "Guerra e pace" del Novecento) era già all’esame del Comitato centrale. Tant’è che nel febbraio del 1961 due agenti del KGB confischeranno non solo il manoscritto, ma anche le carte carbone e le minute, e perfino i nastri della macchina per scrivere: del «grande romanzo» non deve rimanere traccia. Gli occhiuti burocrati sovietici hanno intuito subito quanto fosse temibile per il regime un libro come "Vita e destino": forse più ancora del "Dottor Zivago". Quello che può sembrare solo un vasto, appassionante affresco storico si rivela infatti, ben presto, per ciò che è: una bruciante riflessione sul male. Del male (attraverso le vicende di un gran numero di personaggi in un modo o nell’altro collegati fra loro, e in mezzo ai quali incontriamo vittime e carnefici, eroi e traditori, idealisti e leccapiedi – fino ai due massimi protagonisti storici, Hitler e Stalin) Vasilij Grossman svela con implacabile acutezza la natura, che è menzogna e cancellazione della verità mediante la mistificazione più abietta: quella di ammantarsi di bene, un bene astratto e universale nel cui nome si compie ogni atrocità e ogni bassezza, e che induce a piegare il capo davanti alle sue sublimi esigenze. «Libri come "Vita e destino"» ha scritto George Steiner «eclissano quasi tutti i romanzi che oggi, in Occidente, vengono presi sul serio».

Vasily Grossman (1905–1964) was a successful Soviet author and journalist, but he is more often recognized in the West as Russian literature's leading dissident. How do we account for this paradox? In the first collection of essays to explore the Russian author's life and works in English, leading experts present recent multidisciplinary research on Grossman's experiences, his place in the history of Russian literature, key themes in his writing, and the wider implications of his life and work in the realms of philosophy and politics. Born into a Jewish family in Berdychiv, Grossman was initially a supporter of the ideals of the Russian Revolution and the new Soviet state. During the Second World War, he worked as a correspondent for the Red Army newspaper and was the first journalist to write about the Nazi extermination camps. As a witness to the daily violence of the Soviet regime, Grossman became more and more aware of the nature and forms of totalitarian coercion, which gradually alienated him from the Soviet regime and earned him a reputation for dissidence. A survey of the remarkable accomplishments and legacy left by this controversial and contradictory figure, Vasily Grossman reveals a writer's power to express freedom even under totalitarianism.

Over the past decade, tourism studies has broken out of its traditional institutional affiliation with business and management programs to take its legitimate place as an interdisciplinary social science field of cutting edge scholarship. The field has emerged as central to ongoing debates in social theory concerning such diverse topics as postcolonialism, mobility, and postmodernism, to name just a few. While there has been a diverse body of empirical research on this transformation the theoretical discussions in tourism studies remain largely attached to theories of modernity and Anglo-centric assumptions about tourism. There is a need for the field to come to terms theoretically with the contemporary and future realities of tourism as a truly global phenomenon. Real Tourism is a significant volume which sets this new theoretical agenda, engaging directly with what tourism does in practice and in place and demonstrates the need for a theoretical intervention that moves tourism scholarship beyond the province of Anglophone thinking. The volume achieves this by explicitly bridging âe~westernâe(tm) and âe~non-westernâe(tm) scholarship on tourism; reframing theoretical discussions around âe~real practicesâe(tm) instead of abstract typologies; and radically delinking tourism theory from the grand narratives of modernity and assumptions about authenticity, identity, tradition, and development. The book brings together leading academics in the field and provides provocative multidisciplinary and multi-contextual reflection on the future of tourism. This original, timely and compelling volume puts forward new post modernist ideas and arguments about tourism today and in the future. It is essential reading for students, researchers and academics interested in Tourism.

Il destino ha davvero un’influenza sulle nostre vite, sull’essere, o è soltanto la reminiscenza di miti che appartengono agli albori della civiltà? E l’incontro con il limite, con la malattia, fisica o mentale, è parte di questo percorso già scritto o può essere scongiurato? Dopo aver trascorso la vita occupandosi della mente e dei suoi disturbi con gli strumenti della medicina, Vittorino Andreoli ha sentito il bisogno di andare oltre, di formulare un metodo diverso che si prenda cura dell’uomo «tutto intero» e, a compimento della sua avventura umana e professionale, ci consegna una visione della vita il cui fondamento è la costante promozione del bene per sé e per l’altro. Il suo messaggio è rivoluzionario: qualsiasi esistenza, indipendentemente dall’età e dalla condizione in cui ci si trova, può essere migliorata, in un percorso incentrato su una nuova disciplina da lui stesso fondata, il bendessere. Approfondendone le radici e le applicazioni, l’autore mostra come, seppur con variazioni linguistiche e diverse sfumature di significato, questa ricerca del benessere sia presente fin dalle origini nella storia e nella cultura dell’uomo, e ci accompagna in un affascinante viaggio attraverso i segreti dell’esistenza umana declinato secondo le tre dimensioni fondamentali del corpo, della mente e del nostro rapporto con il mondo circostante, che comprende la natura e le relazioni con gli altri. Oggi che – sostiene Andreoli – risulta sempre più difficile distinguere tra la follia dell’uomo e quella della società, dominata dalle apparenze e dal denaro, spendere la vita «il meglio possibile» è un’aspirazione realizzabile per tutti. Un progetto, in questo senso, «veramente umano».

From Solidarity to Schisms is the first collection to expand discussions of the effects the events of 11 September 2001 and their aftermath have had on fiction and film beyond an exclusively US-based focus. The essays brought together here go beyond critiquing the US to examine the cultural shifts taking place in fiction and cinema from places such as Britain, France, Germany, Australia, Pakistan, Canada, Israel, and Iran. From these many sites of production, the works discussed in this collection illustrate more precisely how 9/11 was “global” without succumbing to neat categorizations, such as “us vs. them,” “East vs. West,” “Christianity vs. Islam,” and so on.From Solidarity to Schisms is an important supplement to the US-centered cultural and critical production addressing 9/11, providing researchers and teachers alike with resources and contexts that will allow them to broaden their own examinations of novels and films by Americans and about the US. It also provides a valuable resource for students and scholars of contemporary global history and international politics who are interested in approaching 9/11, terrorism and counter-terrorism, and related topics from a cultural standpoint.

Roberto Esposito is one of the most prolific and important exponents of contemporary Italian political theory. Bos-his first book to be translated into English-builds on two decades of highly regarded thought, including his thesis that the modern individual-with all of its civil and political rights as well as its moral powers-is an attempt to attain immunity from the contagion of the extraindividual, namely, the community. In Bos, Esposito applies such a paradigm of immunization to the analysis of the radical transformation of the political into biopolitics. Bos discusses the origins and meanings of biopolitical discourse, demonstrates why none of the categories of modern political thought is useful for completely grasping the essence of biopolitics, and reconstructs the negative biopolitical core of Nazism. Esposito suggests that the best contemporary response to the current deadly version of biopolitics is to understand what could make up the elements of a positive biopolitics-a politics of life rather than a politics of mastery and negation of life. In his introduction, Timothy Campbell situates Esposito’s arguments within American and European thinking on biopolitics. A comprehensive, illuminating, and highly original treatment of a critically important topic, Bos introduces an English-reading public to a philosophy that will critically impact such wide-ranging current debates as stem cell research, euthanasia, and the war on terrorism. Roberto Esposito teaches contemporary philosophy at the Italian Institute for the Human Sciences in Naples. His books include Categorie dell impolitico, Nove pensieri sulla politica, Communitas: orgine e destino della comunit;, and Immunitas: protezione e negazione della vita. Timothy Campbell is associate professor of Italian studies in the Department of Romance Studies at Cornell University and the author of Wireless Writing in the Age of Marconi (Minnesota, 2006).
