This dynamic series of interviews captures four long conversations between two passionate and witty thinkers: Arundhati Roy, renowned author of the novel The God of Small Things, and David Barsamian, cutting edge radio producer. Beginning in February 2001, the talks presage the September 2001 attack and trace the subsequent War on Terror to the invasion and occupation of Iraq. Arundhati Roy eloquently represents the thoughts of people worldwide who are coming to know the United States through the machinations of multinational corporations and the military. The many Americans who wondered 'why do they hate us' after 9/11 have no better source than Roy for the complex answers to that question.
