A new Italian-language book authored by Antonio Nicaso, Maria Barillà, and Vittorio Amaddeo was published just this past April 30. Here's the link to the publisher's page for the book, Quando la 'ndrangheta scoprì l'America. 1880-1956. Da Santo Stefano d'Aspromonte a New York, una storia di affari, crimini e politica:

https://www.librimondadori.it/libri/quando-la-ndrangheta-scopri-lamerica/

Both Amazon Italia and Kobo Italia have restrictions about who can buy the ebook, based on your country of residence.

I bought the ebook this morning via the Internet Bookshp Italia site, ibs.it, ordering from the following page:

https://www.ibs.it/quando-ndrangheta-scopri-america-1880-ebook-vari/e/9788852094477

The book can be read online in a browser tab or downloaded as an .acsm file, which you will then have to open in Adobe Digital Editions, the free e-reader. You can't drag and copy text, which is a huge disadvantage for those of you who were thinking of translating the text in portions. If Kobo makes the ebook available in your country at some point, you will then be able to buy the digital version, drag text, and look up the selected text in Google, which in turn will allow you to copy and paste in to Google Translate.

The price of the ebook is 12.99 Euros. My credit card will likely be charged around 19.60 Canadian dollars. American customers are likely looking at spending about 14.50 US dollars.

Thank you for sharing , you have websites that can do photo-to-text , so if you want to translate you can take a screenshot and then translate like that.

You're welcome, Strax.

I do use websites that use OCR to convert the text in images, such as screenshots, to text that can be selected, copied, and pasted. I even do this when I have an image containing English-language copy.

But with an ebook, you need a reader or reading app that will allow you to drag, select, copy, and paste large chunks of text into a translation utility.
