The Orwell Conundrum: A Cry of Despair Or Faith in the Spirit of Man?
McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP, 1992 - 313 من الصفحات
An important contribution to the understanding of George Orwell's thought, particularly to Nineteen Eighty Four. The author challenges the view of the novel as a flawed work of crushing pessimism, arguing convincingly that it is a great humanist's mature vision of his deeply troubled times.
