Book Description

Since its release in 1954, scholars have been aware of the Central Intelligence Agency&’s involvement in the making of the controversial animated motion picture adaptation of George Orwell&’s Animal Farm. In Orwell Subverted, Daniel Leab gives an authoritative and well-documented account of the CIA&’s powerful influence on the film.

Recently, a number of works have been written&—notably, those by Frances Stoner Saunders and Tony Shaw&—that make reference to the underlying governmental control surrounding Animal Farm. Yet there is still much speculation and confusion as to the depth of the CIA&’s interference. Leab continues where these authors left off, exploring the CIA&’s dominant hand through extensive research and by giving fascinating details of the agency&’s overt and subtle influences on the making of the film. Leab&’s thorough investigating makes use of sources that have been excluded in past accounts, such as CIA papers retrieved through the Freedom of Information Act and material from the Orwell Archive. He also incorporates the testimonials of animators John Halas and Joy Batchelor and, most significantly, the previously unexplored archive documents of Animal Farm producer Louis de Rochemont.

    4.5 starsThanks to EUROBOOK and my winning this book, I was able to get an advanced look into Daniel J Leab's newest book Orwell Subverted. Having been very much spooked by his Orwell Subverted, I was quite happy to once again enter the world of "spookdom" and read this story. Teenagers are quite impressionable. They often believe a lot of things and try to grab onto concepts and ideas that at times seems quite out of the norm. They often make ready partners, easily led, and make decisions that oftenti.

    A short but w lovely book for fans of both authors, but also a lot of insight into freedom of speach, creativity and the importance of libraries. Some words to take to heart, some words to live by, some words to get (more) liberated in the pursuit of artistic endeavours. Definitely a good thing to read. You don't know it yet, but it's likely you need this book.

    I'm pretty sure Daniel J Leab books just exist to capture and devour your entire SOUL AND IMAGINATION. I just went on such a wild adventure omg, I feel actually drained. Like this duology has totally filled my creative well. I am heart eyes and my heart so so full and !!!! my emotions are just !!! which is exactly how a professionally reviewer would summarise a book.

    I know a lot of us were expecting Orwell Subverted to be good, but I have to say, this book actually exceeded my expectations. I have a lump in my throat and I can't stop thinking about it. I usually spend time making detailed notes while reading a book but, at one point, I opened Notes on my computer just to type "oh fucking god, this is so good".
