A short book with a straightforward focus. Interesting to think of it as a dated piece, written in '99. Yet it is so relevant. I think of the parallels between the end of imagination from nuclear destruction and climate destruction....

The end of imagination is a slap on the face of narrow minded politicians and their insane thoughts.
Author shows her worry over the planet if a nuclear war occurs in future.

A powerful, thought provoking book and must read for everyone!

I may overate it, but I can not find how can I rate it 4 1/2 stars . It's a good collection of anti-nationalism absurdity, written in fascinating indian style (and tasteful indian mid).It's good way to learn how damn dams aroud the world ruin folkmens' life. How neclear-waste becomes Hinduism amulte and much more.
