Parenti has written more than a dozen books on the relationship between commerce and militarism, the role of the news and entertainment media in propagandizing certain ideologies, the workings of empires, ancient and modern, the role of history in obscuring or laying bare certain basic truths about the social system, and so on. India has experienced what is called "economic growth" as a result of neoliberal policies. Our next speaker, noted in Indian jounalist Palagummi Sainath will take an in depth look at India's new "prosperity" - the widening disparity between rich and poor that we are also seeing in the US. Sainath is the author of Everybody Loves A Good Drought as well as numerous articles on globalization and its effects. He spoke at the University of Houston on Feb 18, 2005.
