About the Book:
War has spread from Indias borders to the forests in the very heart of the country. Here are four essays by Arundhati Roy including the heatedly debated Walking with the Comrades that combines a clear-eyed, analytical overview with extraordinary reportage from the ground of the Maoist guerrilla zone and her most recent essay, Capitalism: A Ghost Story. Broken Republic examines the nature of progress and development in the emerging global superpower, and asks some fundamental questions about the real meaning of civilization itself.
