From the bestselling author of "The God of Small Things" comes a scathing and passionate indictment of big government'sdisregard for the individual. In her Booker Prize-winning novel, "The God of Small Things," Arundhati Roy turned a compassionate but unrelenting eye on one family in India. Now she lavishes the same acrobatic language and fierce humanity on the future of her beloved country. In this spirited polemic, Roy dares to take on two of the great illusions of India's progress: the massive dam projects that were supposed to haul this sprawling subcontinent into the modern age--but which instead have displaced untold millions--and the detonation of India's first nuclear bomb, with all its attendant Faustian bargains. Merging her inimitable voice with a great moral outrage and imaginative sweep, Roy peels away the mask of democracy and prosperity to show the true costs hidden beneath. For those who have been mesmerized by her vision of India, here is a sketch, traced in fire, of its topsy-turvy society, where the lives of the many are sacrificed for the comforts of the few.… (mere)

Roy, Arundhati. The Cost of Living. The Modern Library, New York, 1999. This book consists of two essays. The first, The Greater Common Good, is about big dam projects in India. This one I'm inteterested in the most; I take any charge that capitalism fails very seriously at this stage in my life. Ms. Roy makes some serious charges that the big dam projects in India have nothing to do with the Common Good and everything to do with greed. The dams, she charges, displace or kill millions. This I want to investigate. The second essay strikes me more as a rambling, but still thought-provoking, response to India's nuclear tests. It doesn't provoke me to follow up on anything, though, because I agree with her viewpoint. The nuclear tests were silly.
