 2.  Field Notes on Democracy: Listening to Grasshoppers

Roy, Arundhati 160846024X / 9781608460243 Hardcover

Brand New! 

Combining fierce conviction, deft political analysis, and beautiful writing, this is the essential new book from Arundhati Roy. This series of essays examines the dark side of democracy in contemporary India. It looks closely at how religious majoritarianism, cultural nationalism, and neo-fascism simmer just under the surface of a country that projects itself as the world’s largest democracy. Roy writes about how the combination of Hindu Nationalism and India’s neo-liberal economic reforms which began their journey together in the early 1990s are now turning India into a police state. She describes the systematic marginalization of religious and ethnic minorities, the rise of terrorism, and the massive scale of displacement and dispossession of the poor by predatory corporations. She also offers a brilliant account of the August 2008 uprising of the people of Kashmir against India’s military occupation and an analysis of the November 2008 attacks on Mumbai. Field Notes on Democracy tracks the fault-lines that threaten to destroy India’s precarious democracy and send shockwaves through the region and beyond.

 3.  Public Power in the Age of Empire

Roy, Arundhati Paperback

Brand New 

Roy clarifies the political and human stakes of regime change and reaffirms the imporance of activism and protest. The scale of what Roy surveys is staggering. Her pointed indictment is devastating. The New York Times Book Review. Reading Arundhati Roy is how the peace movement arms itself. She turns our grief and rage into courage. Naomi Klein, author of No Logo. In her major address to the 99th annual meeting of the American Sociological Association on August 16, 2004, Public Power in the Age of Empire, broadcast nationally on C-Span Book TV and on Democracy Now! and Alternative Radio, writer Arundhati Roy brilliantly examines the limits to democracy in the world today. Bringing the same care to her pose that she brought to her Booker Prize-winning novel The God of Small Things, Roy discusses the need for social movements to contest the occupation of Iraq and the reduction of democracy to elections with no meaningful alternatives allowed. She explores the dangers of the NGO-ization of resistance, shows how governments that block nonviolent dissent in fact encourage terrorism, and examines the role of the corporate media in marginalizing oppositional voices.

 4.  Walking with the Comrades

Roy, Arundhati 014312059X / 9780143120599 Paperback

Brand New! 

From the award-winning author of The God of Small Things comes a searing frontline exposé of brutal repression in India. In her latest book, internationally renowned author Arundhati Roy draws on her unprecedented access to a little-known rebel movement in India to pen a work full of earth-shattering revelations. Deep in the forests, under the pretense of battling Maoist guerillas, the Indian government is waging a vicious total war against its own citizens-a war undocumented by a weak domestic press and fostered by corporations eager to exploit the rare minerals buried in tribal lands. Roy takes readers to the unseen front lines of this ongoing battle, chronicling her months spent living with the rebel guerillas in the forests. In documenting their local struggles, Roy addresses the much larger question of whether global capitalism will tolerate any societies existing outside of its colossal control. 
Price: 15.00 USD
