George Orwell's Meaning of 1984.
Beadle, Gordon B.
Social Education, v48 n3 p183-84 Mar 1984
How the novel "1984" evolved out of Orwell's mind and experience is examined. The novel was meant to be much more than an attack on the Soviet Union and communism. The real target is the deadly combination of advanced technology and unbridled exercise of power over the individual. (RM)
