THE JURA EDITION with new introduction by Alex Massie

'For him, Jura was home' - Richard Blair on his father George Orwell

'The book of the twentieth century . . . haunts us with an ever-darker relevance' - Ben Pimlott, Independent

'The greatest British novel to have been written since the war' - Time Out

'His final masterpiece . . . enthralling and indispensable for understanding modern history' - New York Review of Books

The year is 1984 and war and revolution have left the world unrecognisable. Great Britain, now known as Airstrip One, is ruled by the Party, led by Big Brother. Mass surveillance is everything and The Thought Police are employed to ensure that no individual thinking is allowed. Winston Smith works at The Ministry of Truth, carefully rewriting history, but he dreams of freedom and of rebellion.

It is here that he meets and falls in love with Julia. They start a secret, forbidden affair - but nothing can be kept secret, and they are forced to face consequences more terrifying than either of them could have ever imagined.

In this new edition of a modern classic, Alex Massie's introduction highlights the importance that Jura had on the writing of one of the twentieth century's most important works of fiction.
