The Road to Wigan Pier
A new edition of Orwell's early work, showing the origins of his commitment to social justice.
A new edition of Orwell's early account of bleak working class life in the industrial culture of Yorkshire and Lancashire, which revealed the distinctions between the upper classes of the British Empire and the reality of the people who worked in the factories to drive wealth and prosperity for others, never to get a share for themselves. Published while Orwell was in Spain, the book highlights the political philosophy that led him to fight for the leftist forces in the Civil War.
