Reviews

"Again and again, Arundhati has used her gifts as a novelist and trained architect to help us visualize the invisible architecture of modern empire. Crucially, she has helped us to understand how powerful interests that seem to be in conflict--the nation state vs. corporate globalization; religious fundamentalism vs. US capitalism--actually serve to strengthen and protect each other, and join forces to lay waste to democracy." --Naomi Klein, from the Foreword
