1984 is one of Orwell's best-crafted novels, and it remains one of the most powerful warnings ever issued against the dangers of a totalitarian society. In Spain, Germany, and the Soviet Union, Orwell witnessed the danger of absolute political authority. The novel is one of the most banned books of all time in America.  Its social and political themes were found to be too controversial, and its sexual content was deemed inappropriate. If you celebrate the freedom to read, this is a novel you want on your library shelf.
