La parola chiave di questo libro è "segreto", senza censure. Sarà il lettore a giudicare. La fede religiosa è qualcosa di molto particolare e tutto ciò che ruota intorno ad essa è per natura avvolto dal mistero. Così anche le regole, i testi sacri, i rituali, i templi che nei secoli sono stati espressione del sacro, arcaico e contemporaneo. Dal Cristianesimo alle sette, passando per l'Ebraismo, l'Islàm, il Buddhismo e le altre religioni del mondo. In questo suo decimo libro, Giorgio Nadali - giornalista per diverse riviste nazionali e studioso dei fenomeni religiosi - svela tutti i segreti, anche i più "scomodi", legati al mondo della fede. Nelle pagine di questo libro, tra chiarezza descrittiva e forza divulgativa, scoprirete gli enigmi dei testi sacri, i misteri legati alle reliquie, ai santi e all'eroismo nascosto della vera santità, ai luoghi sacri di tutto il mondo. I segreti del clero cattolico, dagli stipendi sacri agli antipapi viventi, i segreti delle chiese cristiane, dalle messe con i serpenti, alle chiese gay, dai segreti della storia ai rituali sessuali dell’Induismo, i festival osé dello Shintoismo, i segreti taoisti a luci rosse e la pornografia sacra induista. Dalla teologia della prosperità e del successo, alle scoperte e invenzioni legate alla religione, ai rituali taoisti dell’immortalità, dai rituali estremi in alcune religioni alla condizione della donna in tutte le religioni e i segreti interreligiosi, tra vizi e virtù... E poi i fenomeni soprannaturali, l'aldilà... Esorcismi, miracoli e apparizioni tra veri mistici e autentici ciarlatani. La religione fa bene alla salute? Gli studi scientifici. L’influsso culturale e sociale della religione nella laicità di tutti i giorni e il futuro delle religioni, con i dati aggiornati di credenti e non credenti in tutto il mondo. E ancora, potrete approfondire il controverso rapporto tra fede e scienza, sesso e religione, scienza e miracoli, angelico e diabolico, cibi sacri e tabù, o addentrarvi nei segreti (e orrori) del fondamentalismo islamico e del fanatismo religioso nel mondo, dei dogmi e dei rituali religiosi, dell'arte dello Zen, del Nirvana, del Tantra e di tante altre pratiche e "stranezze" religiose... Senza alcuna censura... Centinaia di informazioni attuali e aggiornate in un unico libro. Tutto quello che è impossibile scoprire da soli e che nessuno vi avrebbe mai detto o avrebbe voluto scrivere... Scaricalo, e preparati a stupirti della forza della religione nel bene e nel male in giro per il mondo...

Il papato, una delle istituzioni più antiche del mondo, ha da sempre un doppio ruolo: autorità spirituale e attore fondamentale della scena politica mondiale. E proprio per rafforzare il suo potere, nel 1566 venne fondato il servizio di intelligence pontificio: da allora fino ai giorni nostri, l’Entità e il suo controspionaggio, il Sodalitium Pianum, hanno assassinato re, capi di Stato ed esponenti dell’alta economia come Enrico IV di Francia o Roberto Calvi; preso parte a rivoluzioni, finanziato dittatori e appoggiato golpe; creato società segrete al cui interno sono stati pianificati ed eseguiti omicidi politici e traffici d’armi internazionali; organizzato la fuga di criminali di guerra nazisti e provocato crack finanziari. Tutto in nome di Dio e della fede cattolica e dietro mandato del Sommo Pontefice, secondo il motto «per la croce e con la spada». Questo libro racconta cinque secoli di operazioni segrete dell’Entità, da Pio v a Benedetto XVI, soffermandosi sulle pagine oscure della storia vaticana degli ultimi decenni (l’improvvisa e misteriosa morte di Papa Luciani, l’attentato a Wojtyla, la gestione di Marcinkus dello IOR e il suo coinvolgimento nel fallimento del Banco Ambrosiano). Un saggio sconvolgente e molto documentato, che svela episodi inediti e getta una nuova luce sulle vicende dello Stato della Chiesa, ma anche dell’Italia e delle maggiori potenze politiche mondiali.

I ricchi sono sempre più ricchi. I poveri sempre più poveri. La concentrazione dei dividendi è sempre più nelle mani di poche persone. I banchieri non sembrano aver imparato la lezione degli anni precedenti e stanno ricominciando ad imporre i loro diktat ai governi. Di conseguenza, le paure e le incertezze delle persone sono aumentate a dismisura. Andando di questo passo come sarà il mondo nel 2020? In che modo l’economia riuscirà a risollevarsi? Robert Reich pensa che essa abbia bisogno di affrontare riforme strutturali, in grado di rilanciare i consumi, difendere il lavoro e il potere d’acquisto delle famiglie, altrimenti la società sarà vittima del populismo dei demagoghi e dell’estremismo politico e religioso. Con lucidità e una capacità d’analisi fuori dal comune, l’ex ministro del lavoro di Clinton ripercorre la storia, le idee e gli uomini che hanno portato al cosiddetto “svuotamento” del ceto medio e rivendica come necessaria una nuova stagione di trasformazioni e cambiamenti in seno all’economia e alla società.

The International Bestseller "A true story that surpasses any novel by John le Carré."—El País (Spain) For five centuries, the Vatican—the oldest organization in the world, maker of kings and shaper of history—has used a secret spy service, called the Holy Alliance, or later, the Entity, to carry out its will. Forty popes have relied on it to carry out their policies. They have played a hitherto invisible role confronting de-Christianizations and schisms, revolutions and dictators, colonizations and expulsions, persecutions and attacks, civil wars and world wars, assassinations and kidnappings. For the first time in English (following the bestselling Spanish and French editions), Eric Frattini tells the comprehensive tale of this sacred secret service. The Entity has been involved in the killings of monarchs, poisonings of diplomats, financing of South American dictators, protection of war criminals, laundering of Mafia money, manipulation of financial markets, provocation of bank failures, and financing of arms sales to combatants even as their wars were condemned, all in the name of God. The contradiction between God's justice and Earth's justice, Christian beliefs and Christian power all fall before the motto of the Entity: With the Cross and the Sword.

From the visionary bestselling author of The Second World and How to Run the World comes a bracing and authoritative guide to a future shaped less by national borders than by global supply chains, a world in which the most connected powers—and people—will win. Connectivity is the most revolutionary force of the twenty-first century. Mankind is reengineering the planet, investing up to ten trillion dollars per year in transportation, energy, and communications infrastructure linking the world’s burgeoning megacities together. This has profound consequences for geopolitics, economics, demographics, the environment, and social identity. Connectivity, not geography, is our destiny. In Connectography, visionary strategist Parag Khanna travels from Ukraine to Iran, Mongolia to North Korea, Pakistan to Nigeria, and across the Arctic Circle and the South China Sea to explain the rapid and unprecedented changes affecting every part of the planet. He shows how militaries are deployed to protect supply chains as much as borders, and how nations are less at war over territory than engaged in tugs-of-war over pipelines, railways, shipping lanes, and Internet cables. The new arms race is to connect to the most markets—a race China is now winning, having launched a wave of infrastructure investments to unite Eurasia around its new Silk Roads. The United States can only regain ground by fusing with its neighbors into a super-continental North American Union of shared resources and prosperity. Connectography offers a unique and hopeful vision for the future. Khanna argues that new energy discoveries and technologies have eliminated the need for resource wars; ambitious transport corridors and power grids are unscrambling Africa’s fraught colonial borders; even the Arab world is evolving a more peaceful map as it builds resource and trade routes across its war-torn landscape. At the same time, thriving hubs such as Singapore and Dubai are injecting dynamism into young and heavily populated regions, cyber-communities empower commerce across vast distances, and the world’s ballooning financial assets are being wisely invested into building an inclusive global society. Beneath the chaos of a world that appears to be falling apart is a new foundation of connectivity pulling it together. Praise for Connectography “Incredible . . . With the world rapidly changing and urbanizing, [Khanna’s] proposals might be the best way to confront a radically different future.”—The Washington Post “Clear and coherent . . . a well-researched account of how companies are weaving ever more complicated supply chains that pull the world together even as they squeeze out inefficiencies. . . . [He] has succeeded in demonstrating that the forces of globalization are winning.”—Adrian Woolridge, The Wall Street Journal “Bold . . . With an eye for vivid details, Khanna has . . . produced an engaging geopolitical travelogue.”—Foreign Affairs “For those who fear that the world is becoming too inward-looking, Connectography is a refreshing, optimistic vision.”—The Economist “Connectivity has become a basic human right, and gives everyone on the planet the opportunity to provide for their family and contribute to our shared future. Connectography charts the future of this connected world.”—Marc Andreessen, general partner, Andreessen Horowitz “Khanna’s scholarship and foresight are world-class. A must-read for the next president.”—Chuck Hagel, former U.S. secretary of defense This title has complex layouts that may take longer to download.

Only thirty-three days after his election, Pope John Paul I,Albino Luciani, died in strange circumstances. Almost immediately rumours of a cover-up began to circulate around the Vatican. In his researches David Yallop uncovered an extraordinary story: behind the Pope's death lay a dark and complex web of corruption within the Church that involved the Freemasons, Opus Dei and the Mafia and the murder of the 'Pope's Banker' Roberto Calvi. When first published in 1984 In God's Name was denounced by the Vatican yet became an award-winning international bestseller. In this new edition, Yallop brings the story up to date and reveals new evidence that has been long buried concerning the truth behind the Vatican cover-up. This is a classic work of investigative writing whose revelations will continue to reverberate around the world.

Winner of the Edgar Award: The riveting account of an audacious fraud scheme that stretched from a Mafia hangout on the Lower East Side to the Vatican. With a round, open face and a penchant for tall tales, Matteo de Lorenzo resembled everyone’s kindly uncle. But Uncle Marty, as he was known throughout the Genovese crime family, was one of the New York mob’s top earners throughout the 1960s and ’70s, the mastermind of a billion-dollar trade in stolen and counterfeit securities. In the spring of 1972, de Lorenzo and his shrewd and ruthless business partner, Vincent Rizzo, traveled to Europe to discuss a plan to launder millions of dollars worth of phony securities. Shockingly, the plot involved Archbishop Paul Marcinkus, the scandal-plagued president of the Vatican Bank. Unbeknownst to de Lorenzo and Rizzo, however, the NYPD was already on the case—thanks to the crusading work of Det. Joseph Coffey. Coffey, the legendary New York policeman who investigated the Lufthansa heist and took the Son of Sam’s confession, first learned of the scheme in a wiretap related to the attempted mob takeover of the Playboy Club in Manhattan. From those unlikely beginnings, Detective Coffey worked tirelessly to trace the fraudulent stocks and bonds around the world and deep into the corridors of power in Washington, DC, and Rome. Meticulously researched and relentlessly gripping, The Vatican Connection is a true story of corruption and deceit, packed with “all the ingredients of a thriller” (San Francisco Chronicle).

This the first scholarly study of the finances and financiers of the Vatican between 1850 and 1950. Dr Pollard, a leading historian of the papacy, explores the transformation of the Vatican into a major financial power and the part this played in the developement of the modern papacy. Using hitherto unexplored sources, he sheds new light on tensions between the Vatican's engagement with capitalism and the Church's social teaching and conflicts between the Vatican and the Allies during the Second World War and the early Cold War.

Rodinsky's world was that of the East European Jewry, cabbalistic speculation, an obsession with language as code and terrible loss. He touched the imagination of artist Rachel Lichtenstein, whose grandparents had left Poland in the 1930s. This text weaves together Lichtenstein's quest for Rodinsky - which took her to Poland, to Israel and around Jewish London - with Iain Sinclair's meditations on her journey into her own past and on the Whitechapel he has reinvented in his own writing. Rodinsky's Room is a testament to a world that has all but vanished, a homage to a unique culture and way of life.

Sara Kristoffersson's compelling study provides the first sustained critical history of IKEA. Kristoffersson argues that the company's commercial success has been founded on a neat alignment of the brand with a particular image of Swedish national identity ? one that is bound up with ideas of social democracy and egalitarianism - and its material expression in a pared-down, functional design aesthetic. Employing slogans such as "Design for everyone?? and "Democratic design??, IKEA signals a rejection of the stuffy, the 'chintzy', and the traditional in both design practices and social structures. Drawing on original research in the IKEA company archive and interviews with IKEA personnel, Design by IKEA traces IKEA's symbolic connection to Sweden, through its design output and its promotional materials, to examine how the company both promoted and profited from the concept of Scandinavian Design.
