George Orwell's Animal Farm was often misunderstood and seen as being critical of all forms of socialism, rather than just Stalinist communism. The CIA funded a cartoon version in 1955. Because it was banned in Soviet-controlled territories, many first read it in pirated, 'samizdat' form. If you are a collector of banned books then this copy of Animal Farm is one you will want in your library.
