There´s an India we don´t know about. Behind the public image of a country of astonishing growth, with swelling cities and a burgeoning middle class, there´s a country at war with itself.
For India´s poor are being displaced on an industrial scale as companies move into rural areas to plunder their mineral wealth. But with these clearances comes resistance and in Broken Republic Arundhati Roy provides a stunning snapshot of the conflict between people and industry.
Combining brilliant analysis and reportage, Arundhati Roy examines the nature of progress and development in this emerging global superpower, and asks fundamental questions about modern civilization itself.
