Great Britain, now known as Airstrip One, is ruled by the Party, led by Big Brother.

Mass surveillance is everything and The Thought Police are employed to ensure that no individual thinking is allowed.

Winston Smith works at The Ministry of Truth, carefully rewriting history, but he dreams of freedom and of rebellion. It is here that he meets and falls in love with Julia.

In this new edition of a modern classic, Alex Massie's introduction highlights the importance that Jura had on the writing of one of the twentieth century's most important works of fiction.
