Animal Farm - George Orwell Material Type: Fiction Document Type: Book ISBN: 0451526341 9780451526342 Synopsis Orwell

's classic political fable is often cited as simply a condemnation of Stal inism, which it certainly was, but its political relevance is both wider and mor e enduring, as novelist Ann Patchett notes in her introductory essay to this new edition. Among the lessons contained in its pages is the need of politicians fo r "The Enemy" (think Axis of Evil) and the dangers of individuality to oppressiv e political order. A previous edition of this book was cited in the third editio n of Books for College Libraries Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR Edmund Wilson Absolutely first-rate...comparable to Voltaire and Swift. -- The New Yorker "Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which."
