Auteur: Roy, Arundhati
Titel: The ordinary persons guide to empire
In this collection of speeches and essays Arundhati Roy writes about the subjects dearest to her heart, subjects of interest to anyone interested in democracy, in global justice, and in the direction certain powerful agencies beyond our control are taking the world.Focusing largely on that intense period leading up to and beyond the attack on Iraq, Roy systematically deconstructs the US government's argument for going to war. She exposes the gaping errors in their thesis, the hypocrisy and false ideology behind the rhetoric that led to 42% of the American public believing that Saddam Hussein was directly responsible for the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Centre, and that a bombed, besieged and starved country such as Iraq was a direct threat to the safety of the mighty USA.
