George Orwell was one of the most important British socialist writers of the twentieth century. He produced novels, books of reportage, booklets, essays, articles, broardcasts and reviews, but above all he is remembered for the satires Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four, which have been read by millions of people all over the world. He fought in the Spanish Civil War and sympathised with the anarcho-syndicalists in the Spanish Revolution, and had friendships with several prominent British anarchists until his death in 1950. Here for the first time is a full collection of photographs taken by Vernon Richards and his companion Marie Louise Berneri in 1946, showing George Orwell at home. Also included is the obituary which Vernon Richards wrote in 1950, a series of articles on anarchism which Colin Ward wrote in 1955, and a long account by Nicolas Walter of Orwell's relations with anarchism and the anarchists taking into account the material published in The Complete Works of George Orwell in 1998. 

 

Please note some of the books we have been getting from Freedom Press (including this title) are the best of the fire damaged stock. The books may be slightly discoloured on the outside and smell a bit burnt but we believe they should not be wasted or purely cosmetic reasons and we want to help Freedom survive the arson attack by fascists. Consider such copies as special "solidarity copies" as opposed to "soiled"!
