Product Description

War is Peace.
Freedom is Slavery.
Ignorance is Strength.

Big brother is watching. Always watching. And always alert for the first sign of thoughtcrime.

George Orwell's classic dystopian novel, 1984 looks at the world once it's been divided into three superstates that wage a perpetual war; even though the enemy and allies may change, the war continues. A resident of Oceania, protagonist Winston Smith works revising history to remove references to vaporized "unpersons" as well as any indicator that Big Brother has ever been wrong, or that Oceania may have ever been fighting against someone else.

A tale of what occurs when freedom isn't even a concept, when 2+2=5 when the authority says so, and of unquestioning belief valued above knowledge, 1984 provides a reminder of the value of freedom and of the ability to act in accordance with human nature. 294 pages, softcover, with afterward by Erich Fromm.

Publisher's Description

View our feature on George Orwell’s 1984.

Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell's chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, Orwell's narrative is more timely that ever. 1984 presents a "negative utopia," that is at once a startling and haunting vision of the world—so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of entire generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions—a legacy that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.
