From the bestselling author of Azadi and My Seditious Heart, a piercing exploration of modern empire, nationalism and rising fascism that gives us the tools to resist and fight back

Over a lifetime spent at the frontline of solidarity and resistance, Arundhati Roy's words have lit a clear way through the darkness that surrounds us. Combining the skills of the architect she trained to be and the writer she became, she illuminates the hidden structures of modern empire like no one else, revealing their workings so that we can resist.

Her subjects- war, nationalism, fundamentalism and rising fascism, turbocharged by neoliberalism and now technology. But also- truth, justice, freedom, resistance, solidarity and above all imagination - in particular the imagination to see what is in front of us, to envision another way, and to fight for it.

Arundhati Roy's voice - as distinct and compelling in conversation as in her writing - explores these themes and more in this essential collection of interviews with David Barsamian, conducted over two decades, from 2001 to the present.
