****Part 2: Sources
******Part 3: Variations and Diffusions
******Part 4: The State

### Recensione
This is easily the most comprehensive survey of neoliberalism available, covering the contested meanings of the term, its political and intellectual origins, institutional shape, geographic diffusion, and implications across a wide range of domains. The editors have assembled a formidable set of contributors, including many who themselves played a central role in defining and debating how best to understand neoliberalism. Also welcome in this volume is a recognition of the limits to neoliberalism and the ways in which resistance to it has reshaped the terrain of contemporary capitalism.
(Chris Howell 2018-01-22)
Comprehensive in coverage and elegantly organized, this collection of thoughtful essays probes the history, varieties, political economy and socio-cultural logic of neoliberalism – the signature paradigm of our time. An indispensable resource for researchers and students interested in grasping the dynamics of crisis and change in contemporary capitalism.
(William K. Carroll 2018-01-22)
From the analyses of globalisation in the 1990s onwards, neoliberalism has become a widely studied phenomenon. And yet, its meaning has often been more assumed than closely defined and there has been little agreement on what it actually constitutes. Bringing together scholars from different disciplines and critically engaging with neoliberalism in a range of varied contexts, this Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of, and engagement with, this concept. This is a welcome, state-of-the-art volume, which will become essential reading across the Social Sciences and Humanities for staff and students alike. 
(Andreas Bieler 2018-01-23)
Amidst the waves of socio-economic troubles roiling the world, neoliberalism has often been identified as an explanatory cause. Yet dissecting the neoliberal body – along the lines of its historical gestation, behaviour, convulsions, and adaptability – is a very difficult enquiry. Organised around a stellar cast of perceptive writers, this SAGE Handbook of Neoliberalism is the go-to volume for understanding these problems. Not only does it shed fresh light on many established topics, but the book pushes the study of neoliberalism into new territory, in the process adding further complexity to the neoliberal condition.

Safe Harbour

On a wind-swept summer day in San Francisco, a solitary figure walks down the beach, a dog at her side. At eleven, Pip Mackenzie’s young life has already been touched by tragedy; nine months before, a terrible accident plunged her mother Ophelie into inconsolable grief. But on this chilly July afternoon, Pip meets artist Matt Bowles, who offers to teach the girl to draw–and can’t help but notice her beautiful, lonely mother.
Matt Bowles senses something magical about Pip, who reminds him of his own daughter at that age, before a bitter divorce tore his family apart and swept his children halfway across the world. At first, Ophelie is thrown off-balance by her daughter’s new companion–until she realizes how much joy he is bringing into their lives. As Matt confronts unfinished business from his past, and Ophelie is struck by a stunning betrayal, out of the darkness that has shadowed them both comes an unexpected gift of hope.

Safe at Last

The third book in the beloved #1 bestselling author’s sexy, romantic suspense Slow Burn series…

They say young love doesn’t last, but a girl from the wrong side of the tracks with unique abilities and the hometown golden boy were determined to defy the odds. For Zack Covington, Anna-Grace—his ”Gracie”—was the one. Until one night forever alters the course of their future, when a devastated Gracie disappears without a trace, leaving Zack to agonize over what happened to the girl he loved. As the years pass, his desperate efforts to find her uncovered nothing.

Now working for Devereaux Security, he stumbles across a painting featuring a special place only he and Gracie would know. The image is too perfectly rendered for it to be coincidence. His Gracie must be alive. When he finally tracks her down, he is shocked—and heart-broken—to discover the wounded shell of the girl he once knew and still loves. Her psychic gifts are gone, and worse, she believes he betrayed her all those years ago.

Zack has enemies, and once his weakness is discovered, Gracie becomes a target for revenge. He’ll have to save her before he can earn her trust and her love. And he vows they’ll never be torn apart again.

Sacred and Immoral: On the Writings of Chuck Palahniuk

###
*Sacred and Immoral: On the Writings of Chuck Palahniuk*, edited by Jeffrey A. Sartain, combines the efforts of an international list of writers to explore the depths of Chuck Palahniuk’s fiction. Scholars have paid attention Palahniuk’s premiere novel, *Fight Club*, for years. *Sacred and Immoral* is the first anthology dedicated to scholarship focused on Palahniuk’s work following *Fight Club*, which he has been producing at an average of a book a year for thirteen years. By collecting the work of an interdisciplinary group of scholars under a single cover, *Sacred and Immoral* extends the reach of Palahniuk scholarship beyond any previous publication. *Sacred and Immoral* provides the single most comprehensive and useful scholarly resource to date for anyone wishing to examine Chuck Palahniuk’s fiction in an academic context. Some of the anthology’s chapters situate Palahniuk’s work within existing generic conventions, while other chapters are concerned with the theoretical underpinnings of Palahniuk’s writing and the philosophical implications of his work. With eleven new critical analyses of Palahniuk’s later novels, *Sacred and Immoral* drastically expands the range and depth of academic inquiry into Palahniuk’s fiction commensurate with the prominent and exciting position Palahniuk’s work occupies in contemporary culture. “Sacred and Immoral” also includes a new interview with Chuck Palahniuk, conducted by literary scholar Matt Kavanagh. Finally, *Sacred and Immoral* boasts the most complete primary and secondary bibliographies of Palahniuk-related materials to date. *Sacred and Immoral* is not an attempt to have the last word on Chuck Palahniuk’s literature. Rather, this volume is a springboard for other projects that relate to Palahniuk’s writings. The anthology provides a critical framework for Palahniuk’s later literature that students, teachers, and researchers can use in their own classrooms and writing.******************

A famous photographer lying in a coma holds the key to the salvation of the world. But first he must travel back into the traumatic events of his childhood.
Will Rabjohns has everything. He’s handsome, he’s rich, and he’s revered as the world’s greatest wildlife photographer. He’s also a haunted man, driven to risk his life for his art – to capture the raw tragedy of the wild, the beauty of nature’s violence.

The Rust Programming Language

The Rust Programming Language is the official book on Rust, an open-source, community-developed systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety. This is the undisputed go-to guide to Rust, written by two members of the Rust core team, with feedback and contributions from 42 members of the community. The book assumes that you’ve written code in another programming language but makes no assumptions about which one, meaning the material is accessible and useful to developers from a wide variety of programming backgrounds.
Known by the Rust community as “The Book,” The Rust Programming Language includes concept chapters, where you’ll learn about a particular aspect of Rust, and project chapters, where you’ll apply what you’ve learned so far to build small programs.
The Book opens with a quick hands-on project to introduce the basics then explores key concepts in depth, such as ownership, the type system, error handling, and fearless concurrency. Next come detailed explanations of Rust-oriented perspectives on topics like pattern matching, iterators, and smart pointers, with concrete examples and exercises–taking you from theory to practice.
The Rust Programming Language will show you how to:
Grasp important concepts unique to Rust like ownership, borrowing, and lifetimes
Use Cargo, Rust’s built-in package manager, to build and maintain your code, including downloading and building dependencies
Effectively use Rust’s zero-cost abstractions and employ your own
You’ll learn to develop reliable code that’s speed and memory efficient, while avoiding the infamous and arcane programming pitfalls common at the systems level. When you need to dive down into lower-level control, this guide will show you how without taking on the customary risk of crashes or security holes and without requiring you to learn the fine points of a fickle toolchain.
You’ll also learn how to create command line programs, build single- and multithreaded web servers, and much more.
The Rust Programming Language fully embraces Rust’s potential to empower its users. This friendly and approachable guide will help you build not only your knowledge of Rust but also your ability to program with confidence in a wider variety of domains.

The Rust Programming Language is the official book on Rust, an open-source, community-developed systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety. This is the undisputed go-to guide to Rust, written by two members of the Rust core team, with feedback and contributions from 42 members of the community. The book assumes that you’ve written code in another programming language but makes no assumptions about which one, meaning the material is accessible and useful to developers from a wide variety of programming backgrounds.
Known by the Rust community as “The Book,” The Rust Programming Language includes concept chapters, where you’ll learn about a particular aspect of Rust, and project chapters, where you’ll apply what you’ve learned so far to build small programs.
The Book opens with a quick hands-on project to introduce the basics then explores key concepts in depth, such as ownership, the type system, error handling, and fearless concurrency. Next come detailed explanations of Rust-oriented perspectives on topics like pattern matching, iterators, and smart pointers, with concrete examples and exercises–taking you from theory to practice.
The Rust Programming Language will show you how to:
Grasp important concepts unique to Rust like ownership, borrowing, and lifetimes
Use Cargo, Rust’s built-in package manager, to build and maintain your code, including downloading and building dependencies
Effectively use Rust’s zero-cost abstractions and employ your own

A Russian Doll Other Stories

Character sketches and timeless snapshots of the eccentric denizens of the American city that perfectly capture Eisner’s genius and powers of observation.

A Russian Doll and Other Stories is the ninth collection of short fiction by one of this century’s premier Argentinian writers who, with his fellow countrymen Julio Cortázar and Jorge Luis Borges, helped change the world’s perception of Latin American literature. Bioy Casares’s narratives are elegant and urbane, his style precise and streamlined, as he paces his characters through seriocomic traps of fate––ensnared by love, impelled by lust, ambition, or plain greed, even metamorphosed by pharmaceuticals. These are not stories in a psychological mode but like the image of the Russian doll of the title piece are carefully wrought congeries of intractable selves within selves.

Running with the Bulls

A chance encounter in Spain in 1959 brought young Irish reporter Valerie Danby-Smith face to face with Ernest Hemingway. The interview was awkward and brief, but before it ended something had clicked into place. For the next two years, Valerie devoted her life to Hemingway and his wife, Mary, traveling with them through beloved old haunts in Spain and France and living with them during the tumultuous final months in Cuba. In name a personal secretary, but in reality a confidante and sharer of the great man’s secrets and sorrows, Valerie literally came of age in the company of one of the greatest literary lions of the twentieth century.
Five years after his death, Valerie became a Hemingway herself when she married the writer’s estranged son Gregory. Now, at last, she tells the story of the incredible years she spent with this extravagantly talented and tragically doomed family.
In prose of brilliant clarity and stinging candor, Valerie evokes the magic and the pathos of Papa Hemingway’s last years. Swept up in the wild revelry that always exploded around Hemingway, Valerie found herself dancing in the streets of Pamplona, cheering bullfighters at Valencia, careening around hairpin turns in Provence, and savoring the panorama of Paris from her attic room in the Ritz. But it was only when Hemingway threatened to commit suicide if she left that she realized how troubled the aging writer was–and how dependent he had become on her.
In Cuba, Valerie spent idyllic days and nights typing the final draft of *A Moveable Feast*,* *even as Castro’s revolution closed in. After Hemingway shot himself, Valerie returned to Cuba with his widow, Mary, to sort through thousands of manuscript pages and smuggle out priceless works of art. It was at Ernest’s funeral that Valerie, then a researcher for *Newsweek*, met Hemingway’s son Gregory–and again a chance encounter drastically altered the course of her life. Their twenty-one-year marriage finally unraveled as Valerie helplessly watched her husband succumb to the demons that had plagued him since childhood.
From lunches with Orson Welles to midnight serenades by mysterious troubadours, from a rooftop encounter with Castro to numbing hospital vigils, Valerie Hemingway played an intimate, indispensable role in the lives of two generations of Hemingways. This memoir, by turns luminous, enthralling, and devastating, is the account of what she enjoyed, and what she endured, during her astonishing years of living as a Hemingway.
*From the Hardcover edition.*
