About the Author

Arundhati Roy studied architecture in New Delhi, where she now lives. She is the author of the novels The God of Small Things, for which she received the 1997 Booker Prize, and The Ministry of Utmost Happiness. A collection of her essays from the past twenty years, My Seditious Heart, was recently published by Haymarket Books.

David Barsamian
has altered the independent media landscape, both with his weekly radio program, Alternative Radio, and his books with Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Arundhati Roy, and Edward Said.

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
