Writer Amitav Ghosh on the ‘profound destabilisation’ of the planet

NEW YORK – Writer Amitav Ghosh’s newest e-book, The Nutmeg’s Curse, is a searing account of Western colonialism’s violent exploitation of the pure setting and the colonised.

Subtitled “Parables For A Planet In Disaster”, it argues that it’s in colonialism that the origins of the up to date local weather disaster lie.
