Description
Information
Could it be that democracy, the sacred answer to our short-term hopes and prayers, the protector of our individual freedoms and nurturer of our avaricious dreams, will turn out to be the endgame for the human race?

In eleven powerful, and often shocking, linked essays, Booker-prize winning novelist Arundhati Roy examines democracy's greatest experiment – India – and shows how the West's rose-tinted view often refuses to acknowledge a dark underbelly of corruption, lies and mass murder.
