wd:Q7713089

The Algebra of Infinite Justice (2001) is a collection of essays written by Booker Prize winner Arundhati Roy. The book discusses several perspectives of global and local concerns, among them one being the abuse of Nuclear bomb showoffs. Published by the Penguin Books India, the book discusses several issues from fields as diverse as the political euphoria in India over its successful nuclear bomb tests, the 'power' politics wherein she discusses the power generating companies of the world manipulating the laws and policies of the many power-deprived nations. Mithu C Banerji , in a review in The Observer (2002) stated:Roy's writing reflects her fiction, and meanders between polemic and sentiment. Yet whether she is talking about the 'death of my world' or about 'one country's terrorist being another's freedom fighter', she is always passionately intense.The official introduction to the book by Penguin India is : A few weeks after India detonated a thermonuclear device in 1998, Arundhati Roy wrote ‘The End of Imagination’. The essay attracted worldwide attention as the voice of a brilliant Indian writer speaking out with clarity and conscience against nuclear weapons. Over the next three and a half years, she wrote a series of political essays on a diverse range of momentous subjects: from the illusory benefits of big dams, to the downside of corporate globalization and the US Government’s war against terror.
