Book Review: Arundhati Roy, The End of Imagination

A timely compilation of five of Arundhati Roy’s books of essays with a new introduction by Roy. Parts I and II focus on power politics in India; Part III on the rise of neoliberalism in the United States following September 11th. I’d read many of these essays when they were first published, but in the tumultuous aftermath of the takeover of the global stage by Donald T***p I find they are just as relevant now as then, even prophetic. An important book for everyone: activists, community organizers, and those just looking for a bit of hope in their struggle to survive modern imperialism including a blatantly corrupt Indian government and US domination of the world.
