Te la do io l'America
Author: Joe Bastianich
Le vetrine scintillanti della Fifth Avenue e le montagne russe di Coney Island, i battelli della Circle Line lungo il fiume Hudson e le strade trafficate all'ora di punta, lo skyline di Manhattan al tramonto e i bar seminterrati di Brooklyn aperti fino a notte fonda... Cos'altro vi viene in mente pensando a New York? Il profumo del bacon che sfrigola in padella? Gli hot dog presi a un baracchino all'angolo? I pancake ricoperti di sciroppo d'acero e una tazzona di caffè bollente? Non accontentatevi di sognare a occhi aperti (e con l'acquolina in bocca): tra le mani avete il biglietto per un viaggio con Joe Bastianich, direzione USA. Farete colazione con l'Avocado Toast, come le casalinghe salutiste dei quartieri di lusso, e assaggerete le strepitose Deviled Eggs; scoprirete che la vera ricetta della Caesar Salad l'ha inventata un italiano fuggito in Messico durante il proibizionismo e che, se tornate a casa un po' brilli, la cura perfetta è un panino Meatball Grinder (parola di Joe!); dopo aver assaggiato l'hamburger classico potrete osare con il Juicy Lucy - un panino "per soli adulti", tanto è godurioso - o il Veggie Burger se preferite stare leggeri; e quando avrete finito anche l'ultimo boccone di Cheesecake, non vi resta che una passeggiata a Central Park per sentirvi dei newyorkesi DOC. Un tour di ricette 100% New York Style da provare e riprovare per assaporare il vero gusto della città!

Attempts by Washington and Brussels to push Russia to the fringes of global politics because of the Ukrainian crisis seem to have failed. Thanks to its important role in mediating the Iranian nuclear agreement, and to its unexpected military intervention in Syria, Moscow proved once again to be a key player in international politics. However, Russia’s recovered assertiveness may represents a challenge to the uncertain leadership of the West. This report aims to gauging Russia’s current role in the light of recent developments on the international stage. The overall Russian foreign policy strategy is examined by taking into account its most important issues: Ukraine and the relationship with the West; the Middle East (intervention in Syria, and ongoing relations with Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia); the development of the Eurasian Economic Union; the Russian pivot towards Asia, and China in particular. The volume also analyzes if and to what extent Moscow can fulfill its ambitions in a context of falling oil prices and international sanctions.

A bestseller across Europe this international phenomenon is an ambitious, dynamic and intelligent historical novel written by four young Italian men. Set in the time of tremendous religious and political upheaval caused by the Reformation in Europe,Qbegins with Luther nailing his 95 theses on the door of the Wittenberg cathedral -- a historical flash point which would completely disrupt European society. The novel traces the adventures and conflicts of two central characters as they travel across Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. One is an Anabaptist, a member of the most radical Protestant sect. These are the anarchists of the Reformation who revolted against Catholicism and the emerging Reformation church. The other is a Catholic spy and informer. Like the leaders of religious reform, the book’s authors break with tradition -- seeking anonymity behind the pseudonym Luther Blissett. They have successfully created a world of intrigue, violence and intense political and religious passion. A phenomenal bestseller in Italy and Holland –Qis now being translated into eight languages. When it was first published anonymously in Italy, it was widely rumoured to be the work of Umberto Eco.
This book offers a unique account of British and United States Governments' attempts to adapt their propaganda strategies to global terrorist threats in a post-9/11 media environment. It discusses Anglo-American coordination and domestic struggles that brought in far-reaching changes to propaganda. Changes that had implications for the structures of legitimacy yet occurred largely in isolation from public debate. The fast-paced evolution of the global information sphere prompted rapid development of practices that raise questions regarding their governance. Dr. Briant argues that independent and public reexamination of continuing strategy development is essential for government accountability and the formation of systems and policies that both respect citizens and build constructive foreign relations. This book's themes will engage a wide readership including scholars, PR professionals and government personnel.

"Toilet Paper" is an artists' magazine created and produced by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari, born out of a passion or obsession they both cultivate: images. The magazine contains no text; each picture springs from an idea, often simple, and through a complex orchestration of people it becomes the materialization of the artists' mental outbursts. Since the first issue, in June 2010, "Toilet Paper" has created a world that displays ambiguous narratives and a troubling imagination. It combines the vernacular of commercial photography with twisted narrative tableaux and surrealistic imagery.
