Il sociale interroga la pedagogia. Una nuova sensibilità culturale ed alcune positive tendenze della società civile determinano oggi una maggiore attenzione verso i problemi della formazione ed un maggior credito nei confronti della capacità di progettazione dell’agire educativo. Manca, tuttavia, quel livello di consapevole partecipazione che permetterebbe di individuare il compito educativo come espressione di esercizio della cittadinanza e quindi come leva determinante dello sviluppo e della emancipazione del gruppo sociale. Questo lavoro a più mani, pur destinato ai professionisti del settore, intende richiamare l’attenzione verso aspetti, modelli, luoghi e contesti non sempre raggiunti con la dovuta attenzione e non sempre affrontati con scrupolo metodologico e rigore investigativo. Il tema di fondo è l’apprendimento, che viene studiato in alcuni suoi aspetti meno consueti e nella prospettiva di una comunità competente.
Author: Niccolò Machiavelli
The Prince is a 16th-century political treatise by the Italian diplomat and political theorist Niccol� Machiavelli. From correspondence a version appears to have been distributed in 1513, using a Latin title, De Principatibus (About Principalities). However, the printed version was not published until 1532, five years after Machiavelli's death. This was done with the permission of the Medici pope Clement VII, but "long before then, in fact since the first appearance of The Prince in manuscript, controversy had swirled about his writings".

The Art of Deception
Author: Kevin D. Mitnick, William L. Simon
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
The world's most infamous hacker offers an insider's view of the low-tech threats to high-tech security Kevin Mitnick's exploits as a cyber-desperado and fugitive form one of the most exhaustive FBI manhunts in history and have spawned dozens of articles, books, films, and documentaries. Since his release from federal prison, in 1998, Mitnick has turned his life around and established himself as one of the most sought-after computer security experts worldwide. Now, in The Art of Deception, the world's most notorious hacker gives new meaning to the old adage, "It takes a thief to catch a thief." Focusing on the human factors involved with information security, Mitnick explains why all the firewalls and encryption protocols in the world will never be enough to stop a savvy grifter intent on rifling a corporate database or an irate employee determined to crash a system. With the help of many fascinating true stories of successful attacks on business and government, he illustrates just how susceptible even the most locked-down information systems are to a slick con artist impersonating an IRS agent. Narrating from the points of view of both the attacker and the victims, he explains why each attack was so successful and how it could have been prevented in an engaging and highly readable style reminiscent of a true-crime novel. And, perhaps most importantly, Mitnick offers advice for preventing these types of social engineering hacks through security protocols, training programs, and manuals that address the human element of security.
A historical novel reflecting the Sicily of the end of the 19th century.
Lend Me Your Ears
Author: Max Atkinson
Publisher: Oxford University Press
The room darkens and grows hushed, all eyes to the front as the screen comes to life. Eagerly the audience starts to thumb the pages of their handouts, following along breathlessly as the slides go by one after the other... We're not sure what the expected outcome was when PowerPoint first emerged as the industry standard model of presentation, but reality has shown few positive results. Research reveals that there is much about this format that audiences positively dislike, and that the old school rules of classical rhetoric are still as effective as they ever were for maximizing impact. Renowned communications researcher, consultant, and speech coach Max Atkinson presents these findings and more in a groundbreaking and refreshing approach that highlights the secrets of successful communication, and shows how anyone can put these into practice and become an effective speaker or presenter. Topics Include: DT How to win and hold the attention of audiences; DT Using visual aids and PowerPoint more effectively; DT Getting your message across and winning applause; DT Inspiring audiences; DT How to prepare quickly; DT Fact and fiction about body language and non-verbal communication
