The Reality behind the Headlines

This book cuts to the chase: none of the obfuscation and excuses that attempt to put a positive gloss on our laws, institutions and society. The laws on land acquisition, for example, were passed by the British to give a legal and moral cover to the theft of land that tribals had lived on for centuries. They continue to serve the same purpose today. The book looks at corporate governance, the courts, our hypocrisy and much else.

Written in an easy, conversational style, the book is a useful corrective to what our newspapers, politicians and others tell us.
