Description: Arundhati Roy, the internationally acclaimed author of The God of Small Things, explores the politics of writing and the human and environmental price of "development" in her latest work, Power Politics. In a clear and compelling voice, Roy 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, which promises the dislocation of hundreds of thousands of people.Roy describes the challenges she has faced in speaking out on contemporary politics after the tremendous international success of her novel, The God of Small Things, winner of the prestigious Booker Prize. Like The Cost of Living, described by Salman Rushdie as "brilliant reportage with a passionate, no-holds-barred commentary", Power Politics takes us to the frontlines of struggle for social justice in India.In this latest work, Roy writes of "the politics of joining handsacross the world and preventing certain destruction . . . In the present circumstances, I'd say that the only thing worth globalizing is dissent".
