Rodden examines the changing perceptions of Orwell during and after the collapse of the Soviet Union; the appropriation of Orwell's rhetoric by the Right and Left; and the controversies among Orwell biographers. In his chapter, "W.W.G.O.D.," Rodden considers Orwell's persistence as an intellectual and political emblem. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
