1984 v4.7.0 S60v3 by George Orwell
Winstonís torture with the cage of rats in Room 101.
The novel depicts an oligarchical collectivist society where life in the Oceanian province of Airstrip One is a world of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance, and incessant public mind control.
The individual is always subordinated to the masses, and it is in part this philosophy which allows the Party to manipulate and control humanity.
In the Ministry of Truth (Minitrue), protagonist Winston Smith is a civil servant responsible for perpetuating the Party's propaganda by revising historical records to render the Party omniscient and always correct, yet his meagre existence disillusions him to the point of seeking rebellion against Big Brother, eventually leading to his arrest, torture, and conversion.
A Tale of Two Cities v2.2.20 S60v3 by Charles Dickens
A Tale of Two Cities (1859) is a novel by Charles Dickens, set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution. With 200 million copies sold, it is the most printed original English book, and among the most famous works of fiction.
It depicts the plight of the French peasantry under the demoralization of the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and a number of unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same time period.
It follows the lives of several protagonists through these events, most notably Charles Darnay, a French once-aristocrat who falls victim to the indiscriminate wrath of the revolution despite his virtuous nature, and Sydney Carton, a dissipated British barrister who endeavours to redeem his ill-spent life out of love for Darnay's wife, Lucie Manette.
Bin Laden: Behind the Mask of the Terrorist v4.7.0 S60v3 by Adam Robinson
Osama bin Laden has presented himself to the world as a zealous freedom fighter and a deeply pious man, a de facto paragon for Muslims everywhere.
Telling a far different story, this authoritative new biography lifts bin Laden's mask of moral purity as it recounts his transformation from dissolute rich kid into terrorist mastermind and delineates his long campaign to bring jihad to the United States.
Based on reliable information provided by members of bin Laden's family and extensive independent research, Adam Robinson opens a window onto a privileged childhood riven by jealousies, family politics, and the early death of his father, and depicts the young bin Laden desperately seeking attention and acceptance.
Documenting the teenager's excesses in the Beirut nightclub world of hedonism, sex, and alcohol, he traces the steps that led to bin Laden's transformation, via the Soviet-Afghan war and Operation Desert Storm -- and with no small amount of media manipulation -- into an icon in the Islamic fundamentalist world.
The author shows how bin Laden's business skills shaped Al-Qaeda into a kind of Terrorism, Inc., and recounts in detail the increasingly violent stages of his decade-long war against the United States, right up to the attacks of September 11, 2001, and their aftermath.
