Front Cover
New American Library, 1983 - Fiction - 268 pages
1299 Reviews
For use in schools and libraries only. Portrays life in a future time when a totalitarian government watches over all citizens and directs all activities. 1984 is still the great modern classic of "negative utopia" in its representation of an imaginary world that is completely convincing.
