First published in England 1949 by Martin Secker and Warburg Ltd. Includes bibliographical references (p. xxv-xxvii).

While the totalitarianism that provoked George Orwell into writing 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' seems to be passing into oblivion, his harrowing, cautionary tale of a man trapped in a political nightmare has had the opposite fate, and its relevance and power to disturb our complacency seem to grow decade by decade.
