1984
by Orwell, George

[ACCESS EBOOK ONLINE]

"Many attempts have been made to rid school libraries of 1984 in the nearly 50 years since its publication. In his introduction to Celebrating Censored Books, Lee Burress identified the 30 most frequently challenged books ... 1984 ranked fifth." See Literature Suppressed on Political Grounds for more details. Challenged in the Jackson County, FL (1981) because Orwell's novel is "pro-communist and contained explicit sexual matter." (ALA.org)
