Overview

Power Politics (Second Edition) / Edition 2

In Power Politics, Arundhati Roy challenges the idea that only "experts" can speak out on such urgent matters as the globalization of the world economy, the privatization of India's power supply by U.S.-based energy companies, and the construction of monumental dams that will dislocate hundreds of thousands of people. Roy takes us to the frontlines of struggles for social justice and a humane, democratic future.

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.
