"A riveting account . . . a necessary book by one of India's most distinctive voices." -Washington Post
"A bell-clear expose of corporate greed and governmental malfeasance that should--if there is any justice in the world--provoke a furious backlash in the name of human dignity." -Kirkus (starred review) "Informed, impassioned, at times strident, and fleet and fascinating when describing life on the ground among the rebels, Roy's prose will both rouse and ruffle . . . she ultimately points to a global system in which all we're all crucially involved and implicated." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)
