La mia sosta perfetta

Una volta mi è stato detto di scrivere solo delle cose che conoscevo e di cui avevo avuto esperienza perché, sulle pagine, sarebbero sembrate molto più vive.
Questo libro è tutto quello che so e, per me, queste pagine trasudano vita a ogni parola. Spero che voi possiate sentirla, perché, adesso, sono così grato di poterla avere che quasi mi esplode il cuore.

Il romanzo, liberamente ispirato ad una storia vera, si svolge nel 2001 sulla splendida cornice paesaggistica di Reggio Calabria. Il protagonista è Carlo Fante: trent’anni, felicemente sposato con Rachele e padre di Riccardo, un dolcissimo bambino di quattro anni. L’azione comincia quando Carlo trova lavoro: giardiniere presso l’istituto psichiatrico “San Gregorio.” Carlo diventa amico di quattro pazienti speciali: Filippo, Mimì, Bart e Vera. Ognuno di essi porta un fardello nel cuore, errori fatti in passato, che trasportano come un pesante carico sulle spalle, proprio come una formica fa ogni giorno della sua vita, portando nella tana un chicco di grano dieci volte più grande del suo peso. Uno di essi, Filippo, resterà schiacciato dal pesante carico, Bart e Mimì, invece, riusciranno a disfarsene, tornando serenamente a vivere nella società. Carlo s’innamora perdutamente di Vera, trovandosi di fronte ad una scelta amletica: l’ infinito amore per la propria famiglia (nel frattempo Rachele gli ha confidato di essere in dolce attesa) o la smisurata passione verso una donna bella da impazzire. Questa scelta si protrarrà fino allo sconvolgente finale del romanzo, che lascerà il lettore senza fiato, incollandolo agli ultimi capitoli del libro, ricchi di pathos e colpi di scena. Sfido chiunque legga questo libro, a non avere questo pensiero: “Non avrei mai immaginato che sarebbe terminato in questo modo!” Il romanzo si potrebbe definire intimistico con venature dark, ricco di suggestioni paesaggistiche, dallo stile limpido e scorrevole.

The violent actions of a few extremists can alter the course of history, yet there persists a yawning gap between the potential impact of these individuals and what we understand about them. In Engineers of Jihad, Diego Gambetta and Steffen Hertog uncover two unexpected facts, which they imaginatively leverage to narrow that gap: they find that a disproportionate share of Islamist radicals come from an engineering background, and that Islamist and right-wing extremism have more in common than either does with left-wing extremism, in which engineers are absent while social scientists and humanities students are prominent.

Searching for an explanation, they tackle four general questions about extremism: Under which socioeconomic conditions do people join extremist groups? Does the profile of extremists reflect how they self-select into extremism or how groups recruit them? Does ideology matter in sorting who joins which group? Lastly, is there a mindset susceptible to certain types of extremism?

Using rigorous methods and several new datasets, they explain the link between educational discipline and type of radicalism by looking at two key factors: the social mobility (or lack thereof) for engineers in the Muslim world, and a particular mindset seeking order and hierarchy that is found more frequently among engineers. Engineers' presence in some extremist groups and not others, the authors argue, is a proxy for individual traits that may account for the much larger question of selective recruitment to radical activism.

Opening up markedly new perspectives on the motivations of political violence, Engineers of Jihad yields unexpected answers about the nature and emergence of extremism.

Maintenance Audits Handbook: A Performance Measurement Framework explores the maintenance function and performance of an organization, and outlines the key aspects required for an effective and efficient maintenance performance measurement (MPM) system. Incorporating different aspects of traditional literature and considering various frameworks on the subject, it examines the auditing process as well as the use and development of maintenance metrics. It identifies different frameworks and models showcasing how MPM systems should be implemented as well as the values that are created when different frameworks are used.

The book presents performance indicators within a framework that classifies and sorts according to functional and hierarchical aspects. It introduces techniques that can help determine the right set of performance indicators. It also outlines a process that combines both numerical indicators with the classical result of massive questionnaires successfully incorporating both the quantitative and qualitative aspects of maintenance performance. In addition, the author provides examples of MPM frameworks that are used in organizations with condition-based, vibration-based, and reliability-centered maintenance.

A useful handbook for students and maintenance professionals, this book provides readers with an understanding of how to

Align the organizational strategy to the strategies of the maintenance function Link the maintenance performance measures to the different hierarchies of the organization and establish effective communication between them Translate the MPIs at operational level to the corporate level (to create value for the whole organization and its customers) Identify the weaknesses and strengths of the implemented maintenance strategy

Maintenance Audits Handbook: A Performance Measurement Framework

provides readers with a sound foundation for developing and measuring a comprehensive maintenance improvement strategy using qualitative and quantitative data, and serves as an ideal resource for maintenance/mechanical engineers, maintenance/performance/business/production managers and industry professionals involved in maintenance.

This book analyses the rise and decline of the Basque terrorist group Euskadi Ta Askatasuna (ETA, Basque Homeland and Freedom). ETA declared a unilateral ceasefire in November 2011, bringing to a close a campaign of political violence that started in the late 1960s. By the beginning of the twenty-first century, the overwhelming majority of secession supporters agreed that an independent Basque homeland would be realised through ‘ballots’ and not ‘bullets’.

Providing an inter-disciplinary overview of radical Basque nationalism that pays special attention to the drivers for ETA’s decline, defeat and disbandment, this book includes chapters by historians, political scientists and sociologists who offer three important theoretical and empirical contributions to the literature on nationhood and security studies. Firstly the book re-assesses the military conflict that opposed ETA and the Spanish state, by paying special attention to tactical and strategic considerations as well as the counter-terrorist policy itself. Secondly it provides an original interpretation of the politics of fear which surrounded the process of victimization, as well as assessing the extent to which the issue of violence led to the polarisation of citizens. Thirdly the authors examine the historical narratives and rituals that contributed to the production and reproduction of identity binaries and memories of war.

Arguing that the defeat of ETA must be contextualised within the strategic evolution of Basque nationalism, the declining resonance of the radical message and the effectiveness of the Spanish counter-terrorist effort, this book is essential reading for students and scholars working in the areas of European politics, nationalism and terrorism studies.
