Pubblicato nel 1974, Intervista con la storia viene riproposto ai lettori in una nuova edizione con la Prefazione di Federico Rampini, primo titolo di una nuova collana BUR dedicata a tutte le Opere di Oriana Fallaci. A proposito del suo libro, diventato negli anni una lettura obbligata anche per i più giovani, la Fallaci scrive nella Premessa del 1977: "Se il naso di Cleopatra fosse stato più corto, l'intera faccia della terra sarebbe cambiata [dice Pascal] Non riesco a escludere insomma che la nostra esistenza sia decisa da pochi, dai bei sogni o dai capricci di pochi, dall'iniziativa o dall'arbitrio di pochi... Certo è un'ipotesi atroce. È un pensiero che offende perché, in tal caso, noi che diventiamo? Ancor più sconsolato ti chiedi come siano quei pochi: più intelligenti di noi, più forti di noi, più illuminati di noi, più intraprendenti di noi? Oppure individui come noi, né meglio né peggio di noi, creature qualsiasi che non meritano la nostra collera, la nostra ammirazione, la nostra invidia?". La risposta è nelle interviste ai personaggi che negli anni Settanta del secolo scorso la Fallaci incontra: da Henry Kissinger a Willy Brandt, da Golda Meir a Indira Gandhi, da Arafat a Hussein di Giordania, dal generale Giap al ministro del petrolio Yamani, da Nenni ad Amendola, fino ad Alessandro Panagulis. Un libro che dalla sua prima pubblicazione ha rivelato il coraggio della Fallaci, la sua voglia di capire il mondo e gli uomini, il suo stile inconfondibile, la forza della sua scrittura. Un libro che ancora oggi risuona come una condanna spietata del potere, un invito disperato alla disubbidienza, un inno appassionato alla libertà.

Translated and sold in nineteen countries, the bestseller that brought Oriana Fallaci world success Published for the first time in 1979 by Rizzoli, A Man is the passionate story of Alekos Panagulis, hero of the Greek Resistance and Fallaci’s partner. On May 1, 1976, Alexandros Panagulis, known as Alekos, the lonely hero of the Greek riot against tyranny and power, died tragically in a suspicious car crash. During his funeral, millions of people crowded the streets of Athens screaming “Zi, zi, zi!”—“Live, live, live!” This is the opening scene of A Man—and the final scene in the life of Alekos and of his love story with the author. The narration goes back some years, and the reader relives the breakdown of Alekos’s relationship with Oriana Fallaci, starting with his attempt to kill the tyrant Papadopulos and his consequent arrest. Balancing romance and reportage, Fallaci describes Alekos’s personal fight against tyranny and his desperate attempt to escape his inevitable arrest. Alekos became a real hero for the Greek population; the political leadership could not kill him without stirring up the suspicion of the public. The government built him a prison called Boiati, where he survived tremendous torture, hunger strikes, and terribly unsanitary conditions. After his release, Fallaci met and interviewed him. They fell in love and shared years of romance, obsession, and madness, all recounted in this extraordinary book. The story centers on their strong and deep love, intertwined with the struggle of this Greek tragic hero, who desperately looked for freedom and who, in the end, was just a man.
Published by Rizzoli in 1975, Letter to a Child Never Born was quickly translated and sold in twenty-seven countries, becoming an extraordinary world success. It is the tragic monologue of a woman speaking with the child she carries in her womb. This letter confronts the burning theme of abortion, and the meaning of life, by asking difficult questions: Is it fair to impose life even if it means suffering? Would it be better not to be born at all? Letter to a Child Never Born touches on the real meaning of being a woman: the power to give life or not. When the book begins, the protagonist is upset after learning she is pregnant. She knows nothing about the child, except that this creature depends totally and uniquely on her own choices. The creation of another person directly within one’s own body is a very shocking thing. The sense of responsibility is huge; it is a heavy burden that gives life to endless reflections, from the origin of our existence to the shame of our selfishness. If the child could choose, would he prefer to be born, to grow up, and to suffer, or would he return to the joyful limbo from which he came? A woman’s freedom and individuality are also challenged by a newborn—should she renounce her freedom, her job, and her choice? What should she do at this point?

This book offers a unique insight into fifty personalities who in some way shaped the second half of the 20th century (the ‘short century’). It features exclusive interviews conducted by Marco Lupis during his decades-long career as a special and foreign correspondent covering Latin America and the Far East for some of Italy’s biggest media outlets, including Corriere della Sera, Panorama, L’Espresso, La Repubblica and RAI. You will hear from leading figures from the worlds of politics, culture and the arts, including: rock star Peter Gabriel, singer-songwriter Franco Battiato, supermodel Claudia Schiffer, Mexican revolutionary Subcomandante Marcos, Nobel laureate and Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi, Colombian politician Ingrid Betancourt, Argentine president Carlos Menem, Japanese and Chinese Nobel-winning writers Kenzaburō Ōe and Gao Xingjian, and East Timorese president and Nobel laureate José Ramos-Horta. Sometimes dramatic, occasionally light-hearted, but always accurate and packed with fascinating revelations, Lupis’s interviews cover the great issues of the modern era: war, freedom, the fight against injustice and the quest for truth, be it through politics, literature, art or cinema. Marco Lupis is a journalist, photojournalist and author who has worked as La Repubblica’s Hong Kong correspondent. Born in Rome in 1960, he has worked as a special and foreign correspondent the world over, but mainly in Latin America and the Far East, for major Italian publications (Panorama, Il Tempo, Corriere della Sera, L’Espresso and La Repubblica) and the state-owned broadcaster RAI. Often posted to war zones, he was one of the few journalists to cover the massacres in the wake of the declaration of Timor-Leste’s independence, the bloody battles between Christians and Muslims in the Maluku Islands, the Bali bombings and the SARS epidemic in China. He covered the entire Asia-Pacific region, stretching from Hawaii to the Antarctic, for over a decade. His articles, which often decry human rights abuses, have also appeared in daily newspapers in Spain, Argentina and the United States. PUBLISHER: TEKTIME

History of the Mafia
Author: Salvatore Lupo
Publisher: Columbia University Press
Consulting rare archival sources, Salvatore Lupo traces the web of associations, both illicit and legitimate, that have defined the Sicilian Mafia from 1860 to the present. He focuses on several crucial periods of transformation: the Italian unification of 1860 and 1861, the murder of noted politician Notarbartolo, the fascist repression of the Mafia, the Allied invasion of 1943, the social conflicts that followed each world war, and the major murders and trials of the 1980s. Lupo clarifies the Mafia's cultural codes and situates them within social groups and communities. He also refutes the notion that the Mafia has grown more ruthless in recent decades. Rather than representing a shift from "honorable" crime to immoral drug trafficking and violence, Lupo argues the terroristic activities of the modern Mafia signify a new desire for visibility and a distinct break from the state.
