Una prueba más de los angeles brillantez de Roberto Saviano como escritor, investigador y divulgador» (Antonio Maria Costa, ex director ejecutivo de los angeles Oficina de las Naciones Unidas contra las Drogas y el Delito).

Download Globalmafia: Manifesto per un'internazionale antimafia by Giuseppe Carlo Marino,Antonio Ingroia PDF

By Giuseppe Carlo Marino,Antonio Ingroia

Si continua a parlare e a scrivere di mafie vecchie e nuove, mentre le idee rimangono confuse persino sulla mafia-mafia originaria, nata in Sicilia ed esportata nel continente americano. Sull’argomento si moltiplicano le confusioni interpretative e i giudizi superficiali, insufficienti e devianti (del tipo canonico “la mafia è l. a. criminalità organizzata”) e ambiguamente si invoca l. a. legalità, mentre si impone nel mondo un più complesso interrogativo: con quale dinamica, e con quale natura (antica e nuova), agli oscuri poteri del capitalismo globalizzato si sta avvitando, come l’edera al tronco, il processo della globalizzazione mafiosa? Di certo l’“egemonia” del malaffare sta dilagando dall’Italia al resto del pianeta nelle forme a number of e variabili di un inedito totalitarismo, incorporando sempre più inferme e improbabili “democrazie”. Ed è tanto malaffare quanto è politica ed è politica in quanto è economia. Mancava un quadro interpretativo “globale” idoneo a spiegare come l. a. peggiore Sicilia della mafia sia diventata negli anni los angeles peggiore Italia delle mafie fino a intrecciarsi con tutte le altre del pianeta, segnandone metodi, stili, mentalità e mestieri criminali. Lo ha scritto, adesso, lo storico che aveva inaugurato l. a. storiografia critica sul fenomeno mafioso.
Ne è nato questo testo snello, sintetico e intenso, tanto inquietante consistent with le denunci quanto accattivante according to un inconfondibile stile di scrittura; un testo di riflessione e di azione civile, che si apre al dibattito come un Manifesto in keeping with un’Internazionale antimafia.
