Field notes on democracy : listening to grasshoppers by Arundhati Roy( Book )

32 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This series of essays examines the dark side of democracy in contemporary India. It looks closely at how religious majoritarianism, cultural nationalism, and neo-fascism simmer just under the surface of a country that projects itself as the world's largest democracy. Roy writes about how the combination of Hindu Nationalism and India's neo-liberal economic reforms, which began their journey together in the early 1990s, are now turning India into a police state. She describes the systematic marginalization of religious and ethnic minorities, the rise of terrorism, and the massive scale of displacement and dispossession of the poor by predatory corporations. She also offers a brilliant account of the August 2008 uprising of the people of Kashmir against India's military occupation and an analysis of the November 2008 attacks on Mumbai."--Publisher's Web site
Capitalism : a ghost story by Arundhati Roy( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the poisoned rivers, barren wells, and clear-cut forests, to the hundreds of thousands of farmers who have committed suicide to escape punishing debt, to the hundreds of millions of people who live on less than two dollars a day, there are ghosts nearly everywhere you look in India. India is a nation of 1.2 billion, but the country's 100 richest people own assets equivalent to one-fourth of India's gross domestic product. Capitalism: A Ghost Story examines the dark side of democracy in contemporary India, and shows how the demands of globalized capitalism has subjugated billions of people to the highest and most intense forms of racism and exploitation."--Back cover

To the inhabitants of Jalsindhi, an indigenous people known as Avidasis, it represents an end to a way of life they have lived for generations.

As protests against the dam building become more widespread and the government's promises of relocation and water distribution are called into question, the villagers decide they would rather drown in their homes than move from their ancestral land

India, fine anni Sessanta: Ammu, figlia di un alto funzionario, lascia il marito, alcolizzato e violento, per tornarsene a casa con i suoi due bambini. Ma, secondo la tradizione indiana, una donna divorziata è priva di qualsiasi posizione riconosciuta. Se poi questa donna commette l'innaccettabile errore di innamorarsi di un paria, un intoccabile, per lei non vi sarà più comprensione, né perdono. Attraverso gli occhi dei due bambini, Estha e Rahel, il libro ci racconta una grande storia d'amore che entra in conflitto con le convenzioni
The god of small things by Arundhati Roy( )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born from two eggs in the one womb of their beloved mother Ammu, Rahel and Esthappen have little to cling to but each other, and the occasional joy that passes through their young lives like a cool breeze on a sweltering Indian day. When Ammu, divorced and disappointed, returns with the twins to her family home in southern India, their worlds begin to open wider, all the while closing in on them. As the three arrive into the arms of Ammu's eccentric and unforgettable relatives, a tragedy begins to unfold that will propel them toward a fate that has perhaps stalked them from their inception. Yet, throughout the pain and hardships of things large and small, the humor, humanity, and ferociously perceptive intelligence only bestowed upon seven-year-olds shines gloriously through. At the core of this extraordinary, bittersweet story is the unforgettable narrative voice of first-time novelist Arundhati Roy, a uniquely talented writer capable of moving us beyond words with the perfect sentence and a profoundly insightful wisdom that far surpasses her years
