Download Premiata Macelleria delle Indie (BUR Futuropassato) (Italian by Alessandro Giglioli PDF

By Alessandro Giglioli

Sotto il tetto del mondo, in paesi dove le major avvisaglie della modernità convivono con l. a. miseria e con l'illegalità più brutale, un rene costa poche centinaia di dollari, un bambino qualche migliaio di rupie. L'inchiesta di Alessandro Gilioli attraverso l'India, il Nepal, l. a. Birmania e il Bhutan ci scaraventa in un universo capovolto, in cui l. a. vita umana vale meno di niente e l. a. disperazione si mescola al nuovo consumismo, intrecciando legami oscuri tra l'Oriente e l'Occidente, l. a. povertà e l. a. ricchezza, l'istinto di sopravvivenza e i bisogni più estremi dei paesi industrializzati. Sullo sfondo dei paesaggi leggendari dell'Asia subhimalayana, dove guerriglieri maoisti si scontrano con monarchi sanguinari e migliaia di persone vivono rinchiuse consistent with anni nei campi profughi senza sapere il perché, i crudeli paradossi della vita quotidiana ci svelano tutte le ambiguità e le più sconosciute contraddizioni del nostro piccolo grande pianeta.
