Re: reading suggestions
These folks might be of interest:
1)Arunhdati Roy's film DAM/AGE. A very powerful critique of India's
nuclear weapons policies and the approach to industrialization and
rapid development including the Narmada Dam project (displacing
thousands of poor caste in India) and the power company Enron's
activities in India.
2)Wangari Muta Maathai of Kenya who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2004.
