Description of this Book

As he lay dying, George Orwell summoned his publisher Fred Warburg to his bedside. No longer capable of holding a pen, the writer dictated a message to the public about the world of his new novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four. 'Don?t let it happen,? he concluded. 'It depends on you.?In an age of inescapable surveillance, fake news, alternative facts, would-be Big Brothers and endless low-level wars, Orwell?s warning still speaks to us today, and with greater force than ever before.Republished with a new introduction by Dennis Glover, author of The Last Man in Europe, Orwell?s prophetic masterpiece is truly a story for our times. Orwell?s courage and his refusal to be silenced inspire hope that, ultimately, the spirit of humanity will win through.
