Inhaltsangabe: Orwell's Politics is a study of George Orwell's political ideas and beliefs from his time as a policeman in Burma through to the publication of Nineteen Eighty-Four. It places Orwell's politics in historical context, examining his response to Imperialism, to mass unemployment in the 1930s, to revolution in Spain and to the Second World War and its aftermath. The book considers Orwell's belief that socialist revolution was the only road to victory in wartime Britain. It discusses his time at the BBC and at the leftwing Labour newspaper Tribune. Particular attention is paid to Orwell's American connection, to his writings for Partisan Review and for Politics. Orwell's belief that Russia had nothing in common with socialism is discussed and new sources for Nineteen Eighty-Four are identified. The book also discusses recent feminist critiques of Orwell's politics. Newsinger demonstrates that, while Orwell's political beliefs inevitably changed over the years, he remained a committed socialist up to the time of his death. Orwell's anti-Stalinism was a consequence of his socialism rather than a repudiation of it.
'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
