Description

A radical new translation of the dystopian classic that influenced George Orwell and Aldous Huxley, introduced by Margaret Atwood.

One State is the perfect society, ruled over by the enlightened Benefactor. It is a city made almost entirely of glass, where surveillance is universal and life runs according to algorithmic rules to ensure perfect happiness. And Chief Engineer D-503 is the ideal citizen, at least until he meets I-330, who opens his eyes to new ideas of love, sex, and freedom.

A foundational work of dystopian fiction, inspiration for both Orwell's 1984 and Huxley's Brave New World, We is a book of radical imaginings--of control and rebellion, surveillance and power, machine intelligence and human inventiveness, sexuality and desire. It is both a warning and a hope for a better world.
 
This new edition also includes Ursula K. Le Guin's essay "The Stalin in the Soul" on the enduring influence of Zamyatin's masterpiece, and George Orwell's 1946 review of We.
