This title features three new essays by India's fiercest, most outspoken and fearless political activist. War has spread from the borders of India to the forests in the very heart of the country. Combining brilliant analysis and reportage by one of India's iconic writers, "Broken Republic" examines the nature of progress and development in the emerging global superpower, and asks fundamental questions about modern civilization itself. In three incisive essays Roy lays bare the corruption at the centre of government and industry, explores life with the Maoist guerrilla movement and reveals the thwarted search for justice and democracy in India.
