Notes

Page from The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism, in theory.

"The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism, by Emmanuel Goldstein, is the fictional book that is a thematic and plot element integral to the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), by George Orwell.  A large portion of Nineteen Eighty-Four is a reproduction of portions of the samizdat publication allegedly written by Emmanuel Goldstein and known simply as “The Book”, although its actual title is The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism."   Dan Halter. (2011) Samizdat, [Online], Available: http://danhalter.com/samizdat-2011/ [25 January 2018].
