by George Orwell - £20.00 Penguin Books (2001)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780141185187 | ISBN 10: 014118518x
This major new collection brings together the best of George Orwell's powerful political essays and journalism with his timeless satire on totalitarianism, Animal Farm. They show the vast range of his political interests, with articles expressing his views on subjects from corrupt political language to the oppressive British Empire; his masterly wartime Socialist polemic, 'The Lion and the Unicorn'; a wry review of Mein Kampf; a defence of Nineteen Eighty-Four; and extracts from his controversial list of 'Crypto-communits'.
These writings are testament to Orwell's lifelong passion for politics, for telling unpalatable truths and exposing injustice, yet doing so with wit and humanity: in his words, making 'political writing into an art'.
