About this product
- DescriptionIn her major address to the 99th annual meeting of the American Sociological Association on August 16, 2004, Public Power in the Age of Empire, broadcast nationally on C-Span Book TV and on Democracy Now! and Alternative Radio, writer Arundhati Roy brilliantly examines the limits to democracy in the world today. Bringing the same care to her prose that she brought to her Booker Prize-winning vel The God of Small Things, Roy discusses the need for social movements to contest the occupation of Iraq and the reduction of democracy to elections with meaningful alternatives allowed. She explores the dangers of the NGO-ization of resistance, shows how governments that block nviolent dissent in fact encourage terrorism, and examines the role of the corporate media in marginalizing oppositional voices.
