War Talk by Arundhati Roy [in AsianWeek]

War TalkA slim, must-read collection of powerful essays by the author of the Booker Prize-winning The God of Small Things that questions everything from nuclear power, the so-called war against terror, and the new imperialism. She reveals how the Indian prime minister promoted his poems on MTV while Muslims were massacred enmasse in Gujarat, and sagely insists that post-9-11 U.S. rhetoric is merely a thinly disguised “canny recruitment drive for a misconceived, dangerous war.”
