              Fascism and Democracy collects five brilliant examples of Orwell's writing during the darkest days of World War Two. Grappling with the principles of democracy and the potential of reform, the meaning of literature and free speech in times of violence, and the sustainability of o...bjective truth, Orwell offers a compelling portrayal of a nation where norms and ideals can no longer be taken for granted. Like the best of Orwell's writing, these essays also serve as timeless reminders of the fragility of freedom.

              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 a...n 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.

              Dorothy Hare, the dutiful daughter of a rector in Suffolk, spends her days performing good works and cultivating good thoughts, pricking her arm with a pin when a bad thought arises. She does her best to reconcile her father's fanciful view of his position in the world with such ...realities as the butcher's bill. But even Dorothy's strength has its limits, and one night, as she works feverishly on costumes for the church-school play, she blacks out. When she comes to, she finds herself on a London street, clad in a sleazy dress and unaware of her identity. After a series of degrading adventures--picking hops in Kent, sleeping among the down-and-outers in Trafalgar Square, spending a night in jail, and teaching in a grubby day school for girls--she is rescued. But although she regains her life as a clergyman's daughter, she has lost her faith.
