Three new essays by India's fiercest, most outspoken and fearless political activist

War has spread from the borders of India to the forests in the very heart of the country. Combining brilliant analysis and reportage by one of India's iconic writers, Broken Republic examines the nature of progress and development in the emerging global superpower, and asks fundamental questions about modern civilization itself. In three incisive essays Roy lays bare the corruption at the centre of government and industry, explores life with the Maoist guerrilla movement and reveals the thwarted search for justice and democracy in India.

MEDIA REVIEWS
She is a natural rebel . . . Roy's version of India is uncompromising . . . She is the insider on the outside, part of a movement and yet, as a writer, inevitably alone - the individual at the heart of a crowd * New Statesman *
Her prose is vivid and poetic: witty wordplay interspersed with biting satire * Independent *
Scalpel-sharp wit and insight * Express Tribune (Karachi Edition) *
A fine piece of reportage . . . The language is lyrical but Roy's critique is excoriating * Scotsman Magazine *
