Homage to Catalonia
A first-hand account of the brutal conditions of the Spanish Civil War, George Orwell's ‘Homage to Catalonia’. “Every line of serious work that I have written since 1936 has been written, directly or indirectly, against totalitarianism and for democratic Socialism as I understand it”. Thus wrote Orwell following his experiences as a militiaman in the Spanish Civil War, chronicled in Homage to Catalonia. Here he brings to bear all the force of his humanity, passion and clarity, describing with bitter intensity the bright hopes and cynical betrayals of that chaotic episode: the revolu-tionary euphoria of Barcelona, the courage of ordinary Spanish men and women he fought alongside, the terror and confusion of the front, his near-fatal bullet wound and the vicious treachery of his supposed allies.

Mutual Aid: A Factor in Evolution
In ‘Mutual Aid’, Peter Kropotkin attacks the use of Darwinism as a social theory, arguing that cooperation is as important as competition, and had led to the highest achievements of the human race. Examining animals, indigenous societies, medieval cities, and the modern era, Kropotkin demonstrates the importance of cooperation and collective enterprise to evolution and survival, and as a means to social justice. This edition includes Kropotkin’s extensive notes which are at the end of each chapter.

Down and Out in Paris and London
Written when Orwell was a struggling writer in his twenties, it documents his 'first contact with poverty'. Here, he painstakingly documents a world of unrelenting drudgery and squalor - sleeping in bug-infested hostels and doss houses of last resort, working as a dishwasher in Paris's vile 'Hôtel X', surviving on scraps and cigarette butts, living alongside tramps, a star-gazing pavement artist and a starving Russian ex-army captain. Exposing a shocking, previously-hidden world to his readers, Orwell gave a human face to the statistics of poverty for the first time - and in doing so, found his voice as a writer.

Newly presented in a beautiful small format, the lines of ‘Sand and Foam’ echo with a beauty as moving and relevant today as when they were first written.

The Permanent Revolution
This book is probably the most imoprtant that Trotsky ever wrote. It is an anlysis of why the Russian Revolution failed and a passionate counter-blast to Stalin and what Trotsky sees as the betrayal of revolutionary ideals. More importantly, perhaps, it is also a blue-print for the future - the permanent revolution - which is as relevant today as it was when it was first written.

The Road to Wigan Pier
In 1936 George Orwell was commissioned to visit areas of mass unemployment in the North of England, and The Road to Wigan Pier is a powerful description of the poverty he witnessed there. A searing account of George Orwell's observations of working-class life in the bleak industrial heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire in the 1930s, The Road to Wigan Pier is a brilliant and bitter polemic that has lost none of its political impact over time. His graphically unforgettable descriptions of social injustice, cramped slum housing, dangerous mining conditions, squalor, hunger and growing unemployment are written with unblinking honesty, fury and great humanity. It crystallized the ideas that would be found in Orwell's later works and novels, and remains a powerful portrait of poverty, injustice and class divisions in Britain.

The Death of Ivan Ilyich
'The Death of Ivan Ilyich' is probably Tolstoy's greatest novella, because it encapsualtes his notion of what constitutes the better way to live. Ivan Ilycih, slowly dying, comes to realize that the material life he devoted himself to is meaningless when confronted by death. Poignant, sensitive and deeply moral, this is Tolstoy at his best. The cover painting is of Tolstoy ploughing his own fields.
