To The Blue King’s Castle
Adventures In the Underground Forest
Deep in the forests, under the pretence of battling Maoist guerrillas, the Indian government is waging a vicious total war against its own citizens-a war undocumented by a weak domestic press and fostered by corporations eager to exploit the rare minerals buried in tribal lands. Arundhati Roy takes readers to the unseen front lines of this ongoing battle, chronicling her months spent living with the rebel guerrillas in the forests. In documenting their local struggles, Roy addresses the much larger question of whether global capitalism will tolerate any societies existing outside of its colossal control.
