Naomi Klein</p>Now in paperback, with a new introduction by the author discussing the election of India's new prime minister Narendra Modi.</p>This series of essays examines the dark side of democracy in contemporary India. It looks closely at how religious majoritarianism, cultural nationalism, and neo-fascism simmer just under the surface of a country that projects itself as the world's largest democracy.</p>She describes the systematic marginalization of religious and ethnic mirities, the rise of terrorism, and the massive scale of displacement and dispossession of the poor by predatory corporations.</p><i>Field Notes on Democracy</i> tracks the fault-lines that threaten to destroy India's precarious democracy and send shockwaves through the region and beyond.</p><b>Arundhati Roy</b> is a world-rewned Indian author and global justice activist.
