Author(s): George Orwell
'Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two equals four. If that is granted, all else follows.'
GEORGE ORWELL is one of the world's most famous social commentators. His writing opposed imperialism, sought to expose the unjust sufferings of the poor and unemployed and warned us against totalitarianism. This selection, from both his novels and non-fiction, charts his thoughts on FREEDOM: from individual liberty and character, to the nature of society and technology, to political liberty, revolution and the importance of free speech. His clear-eyed ambition to create a fairer and more egalitarian society is essential inspiration as we strive to make the world a better place for all.
