by George Orwell
Publisher: eBooks@Adelaide 2010
The first half of this work documents Orwell's sociological investigations of the bleak living conditions amongst the working class in Lancashire and Yorkshire in the industrial north of England before World War II. The second half is a long essay on his middle-class upbringing, and the development of his political conscience, questioning British attitudes towards socialism.
