Power Politics 2ND Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Arundhati Roy — "India's most impassioned critic of globalization" (New York Times) — has expanded the compelling first edition of Power Politics with two new essays on the U.S. war on terrorism. A Book Sense 76 choice for November/December 2001 and Los Angeles Times "Discoveries" selection, Power Politics challenges the idea that only experts can speak out on such urgent matters as nuclear war, the privatization of India's power supply by U.S.-based energy companies, and the construction of monumental dams in India.

Synopsis:

Roy explores the politics of writing, the costs of development, and the U.S. war on terrorism.

About the Author
