"A powerful study in fiction of the passion for gambling and the evil effect of the national lottery in Naples on all classes of society. The lottery is the joy and curse of the Marquis di Formosa as well as Gaetano, the glove-maker, Carmela, the factory girl and her insolent lover Raffaele. Cesare, the wealthy pastry maker, loses everything he has in the hope of getting money from the lottery for a new venture. The Marquis has ruined himself and is sacrificing his frail young daughter, the Lady Bianca, to his terrible passion. A medium whom he and his friends consult about winning numbers makes him believe that Bianca’s innocence may call on the spirits to reveal lucky numbers, and the Marquis destroys her health and happiness trying to force the sensitive neurotic girl to see spirits for him. She loves Dr. Amanti, peasant born, but a great and wealthy physician, but her father, advised by the medium, forbids her to marry and she obeys. The idyllic love story of Bianca and Dr. Amanti has a tragic ending. Her father refuses her prayers to bring him to her until it is too late for him to save her life. All the characters lose money, honor, and self-respect through the curse of their obsession. The story is also a description of Naples, of its people and scenes at all times and seasons. The panorama of the procession of the festival of San Genaro is a vivid picture."

Il paese di cuccagna; romanzo napoletano by Matilde Serao( Book )

47 editions published between 1891 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Con il toponimo Cuccagna nella cultura popolare, viene indicato il favoloso paese ove regnano l'abbondanza e le delizie del cibo: qui infatti spensieratezza e godimento assoluto sono raggiunti facilmente senza sforzo o sacrifici. Nella nostra tradizione cuccagna è presente però anchen egli usi figurati del linguaggio, infatti designa, per estensione, tanto le prelibatezze alimentari, quanto le fortunate combinazioni del vivere, in contesti che alludono ora a giochi di piazza, ora a momenti di festa e di euforica aggregazione sociale. La Serao nel suo romanzo di ambientazione napoletana, destinato però a un pubblico non locale, seppe sfruttare la complessità semantica del termine. Cuccagna - parola che d'ora in poi scriveremo con la maiuscola - fu per lei sopratutto il nome di una città dedita in settimana, gli abitanti inseguivano, con ostinata convinzione, da visionari, il miraggio dell'arrichimento improvviso e si condannavano ad una vita irreale, sperando in una meta impossibile, riconosciuta solo da una farneticante geografia immaginaria

Matilde Serao is widely regarded as the most successful Italian woman journalist of the nineteenth century as well as being an important writer of fiction. A great observer of life, Serao focused her writing directly on the most pressing problems of a newly unified Italy, urban poverty, and the North/South divide. This collection, the first to make Serao's short stories available in English translation, reflects this naturalistic writer's interest in the everyday drama of the lives of women in the Italy of her day.--Publisher's description

Publisher description: Trojans, Worms, and Spyware provides practical, easy to understand, and readily usable advice to help organizations to improve their security and reduce the possible risks of malicious code attacks. Despite the global downturn, information systems security remains one of the more in-demand professions in the world today. With the widespread use of the Internet as a business tool, more emphasis is being placed on information security than ever before. To successfully deal with this increase in dependence and the ever growing threat of virus and worm attacks, Information security and information assurance (IA) professionals need a jargon-free book that addresses the practical aspects of meeting new security requirements. This book provides a comprehensive list of threats, an explanation of what they are and how they wreak havoc with systems, as well as a set of rules-to-live-by along with a system to develop procedures and implement security training. It is a daunting task to combat the new generation of computer security threats #x13; new and advanced variants of Trojans, as well as spyware (both hardware and software) and "bombs" #x13; and Trojans, Worms, and Spyware will be a handy must-have reference for the computer security professional to battle and prevent financial and operational harm from system attacks
