Overview

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.

Arundhati Roy, the internationally acclaimed author of The God of Small Things, brings her keen novelist’s eye to her analysis of the tragic events of September 11 and the military response, starting with the U.S. bombing of Afghanistan.

The essay 'Algebra of Infinite Justice' is powerful. A must read. I am forever grateful for Arundhati Roy for keeping me sane at times where I thought I was crazy because no one else seemed to think the same way I did.
