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.

Written more than 70 years ago, 1984 was George Orwell’s chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, his dystopian vision of a government that will do anything to control the narrative is timelier than ever...

“The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”
Winston Smith toes the Party line, rewriting history to satisfy the demands of the Ministry of Truth. With each lie he writes, Winston grows to hate the Party that seeks power for its own sake and persecutes those who dare to commit thought crimes. But as he starts to think for himself, Winston can’t escape the fact that Big Brother is always watching...
A startling and haunting novel, 1984 creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the novel’s hold on the imaginations of whole generations, or the power of its admonitions—a power that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.
