The negotiations and treaties and betrayals of the lead-in to World War II are all here, as are Stalin's purges, the famines, the creeping re-establishment of capitalism in the farm's external dealings, and a brilliant closing scene that captures the Tehran Conference and even the post-war confrontation between Stalin and the United States.

Through a young pig named SquealerNapoleon claims credit for the windmill idea. Animal Farm is the story of betrayal of ideals, of the way leaders in general and Stalin in particular can hijack a longing for a better world and turn it into a different tool of oppression.

Here I cannot agree with what George Orwell has to say, but right or wrong this book is a brilliant politically minded piece that is an irrevocable page turner, easily read in one sitting.
