Product Description

Review

'My main criticism of this book (a compliment by another name) is that I wanted it to be longer.' - Robert Pearce, History Today

'an extremely useful addition to the literature on Orwell'. - Frank Field, History

'A vigorous thrashing defence of Orwell'. - Robert Colls, History Workshop

'Newsinger has given as good an account of Orwell as a political thinker - never a systematic one, always a stimulating one - as we are likely to find in this generation'. - Bernard Crick, Political Quarterly

Format: Paperback
Orwell's Politics by John Newsinger moves the debate a critical step further. Taking the end of the Cold War as "an ideal context for a reassessment" of Orwell's political ideas, Newsinger gives us a map of Orwell's intellectual terrain, and deftly orientates the reader around the key Orwellian debates. He examines how Orwell's politics developed in a changing world, and extracts a through-line strung like a piano wire through volatile circumstances, warring ideologies and intellectual sleight of hand in the century that promised workers in the saddle. Newsinger's thesis is that, although Orwell's politics shifted throughout his lifetime, the one constant was his unwavering socialism. What detractors - and even some admirers - have missed is that he never ceased to write from within the left, attacking the betrayal of the revolution rather than the revolution itself.

One of the best, most up to date review's of Orwell. John is slightly biased in his liking for Orwell, but this is a much better place to start than Crick's book.
