4. Limes. Italian geopolitical magazine. Russia Changes the World (2022) (Vol. 2)

“Russia is changing the world” is the title of the volume – the second of 2022 – that Limes is dedicating to the war in Ukraine. A war that, especially if protracted, is destined to profoundly alter international balances in ways that are still largely unpredictable but certainly enduring. The war concludes a 30-year period of US “unipolarity” that began in 1991 with the collapse of the USSR and was already severely undermined by the rise of China, its economic policy and social impact on the United States, and later American overexposure in the Middle East from 2001. The volume provides a historical overview of how and why this war came about and traces relations between the West and post-Soviet Russia.

5. It ends with us. We are the ones who say enough – Colleen Hoover

As she tries to forget that horrible day, she is distracted by the arrival of Ryle Kincaid, a charming neurosurgeon who is focused on his career and avoids any relationship.

6. Putin’s Russia – Anna Politkovskaya

Another book tackling topical issues in this week’s Best Selling Books ranking. Another book about Russia in this week’s bestseller.

The volume was designed and illustrated by MinaLima, the studio that designed the look and feel of all the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films.

8. “Stalingrad”, Vasily Grossman

“Stalingrad” is one of the masterpieces of the Russian writer Vasilij Grossman. Set in WWII Russia, it is a book about Soviet resistance to Nazi onslaught. The Italian translation, recently published by the Adelphi publishing house, has become a coincidence because it came at exactly the right time in view of the events we are living these weeks: a book that tells of resistance in a moment , where every day we listen around and look at the pictures of Ukrainian citizens resisting Russian attacks.

9. Kaiju No. 8. With puzzle. Vol. 2 – Naoya Matsumoto

Another manga in the top 10 best selling books of the week.

Kafka Hibino, who now works for a company that specializes in disposing of kaiju carcasses, once aspired to join the Defense Forces, the special forces tasked with suppressing monsters and defending the country. One day, however, a mysterious organism enters Kafka’s body and transforms him into what the Defense Forces will code-name “Kaiju No. 8.”

10. One Person at a Time – Gino Strada

Among the best-selling books of the week we find “One Person at a Time” by Gino Strada. A useful work for reflecting on the futility of war and conflict. The book of the founder of Emergency, who died on August 13, 2021, tells of the emotions and pain, the exhaustion and the love of a great life adventure that led Gino Strada to experience conflicts on the part of the victims and to experience himself a provocation. A radical and deeply political question rings out on each of these pages, calling for the abolition of war and the universal right to health. A question that sounds highly topical today.
