In Capitalism: A Ghost Story, best-selling writer Arundhati Roy examines the dark side of Indian democracy—a nation of 1.2 billion, where the country’s 100 richest people own assets worth one quarter of India’s gross domestic product.
Ferocious and clear-sighted, this is a searing portrait of a nation haunted by ghosts: the hundreds of thousands of farmers who have committed suicide to escape punishing debt, the hundreds of millions who live on less than two dollars a day.
“No one escapes the fury of Arundhati Roy’s polemic against corporate capitalism in India - not even herself.”
“Searing. . . Roy asks whether our shriveled forms of democracy will be ‘the endgame of the human race’ - and shows vividly why this is a prospect not to be lightly dismissed.”
