“The fierceness with which Arundhati Roy loves humanity moves my heart.” – Alice Walker
“In her searing account, Roy asks whether our shriveled forms of democracy will be ‘the endgame of the human race’—and shows vividly why this is a prospect not to be lightly dismissed.” – Noam Chomsky, in praise of Field Notes on Democracy
“The scale of what Roy surveys is staggering. Her pointed indictment is devastating.” – New York Times Book Review (in praise of Power Politics)
“An unflinching emotional as well as political intelligence. Her lucid and probing essays offer sharp insights on a range of matters, from crony capitalism and environmental depredation to the perils of nationalism.” – Pankaj Mishra, Time
“Resists and denounces all tyrannies, pleads for their victims, and unflinchingly questions the tragedy.” – John Berger (in praise of Field Notes on Democracy)
“Powerful, passionate and often personal (she records her own hounding by “the mob” over her comments about Kashmir), this work is timely and hugely important in its targets: it’s hard to think of bigger dangers, or more harmful effects, than from faceless, unaccountable conglomerates.” – Independent

When democracy has an ethical foundation we might imagine it to be the best choice of political system. However all such systems can become degenerate when avarice and lack of initiative lure government representatives into corruption. Arundhati Roy explores this human fallibility and counts the cost to vulnerable citizens, particularly when they engage in trying to restore the human rights of persecuted individuals.

Arundati Roy is a fearless champion of true democracy and reveals the dark underbelly of Indian politics, the shame of caste and the military occupation of Kashmir. Looks beyond the hype of economic growth to something a little closer to the truth.

I learned the hazards of corporate philanthropy and cross ownership of business empires from this book e.g. mining companies owning media outlets and arms manufacturing factories financing universities.
