Summary Internationally reknowned author Arundhati Roy draws on her unprecedented access to a little-known rebel movement in India to pen a work full of earth-shattering revelations. Deep in the forests, under the pretense of battling Maoist guerillas, the Indian government is waging a vicious total war against its own citizens. Allied with the mining and banking conglomerates, government soldiers are committing unspeakable atrocities daily, ther actions undocumented by a weak domestic press and unnoticed by an indifferent world. In Walking with comrades, Arundhati Roy chronicles the weeks she spent living with the forest guerillas resisting these assaults, taking us to the front lines of a conflict over whether global capitalism will tolerate any societies existing outside of its colossal control.
