We.

"A superb new translation of the classic dystopian novel, 'the best single work of science fiction yet written.'" Ursula K. Le Guin. "Set in the twenty-six century A.D., Zamyatin's masterpiece describes life under the regimented totalitarian society of OneState, ruled over by the all-powerful 'Benefactor.' Recognized as the inspiration for George Orwell's '1984,' 'We' is the archetype of the modern dystopia, or anti-Utopia: a great prose poem detailing the fate that might befall us all if we surrender our individual selves to some collective dream of technology and fail in the vigilance that is the price of freedom."

  • "D-503, a mathematician in the one thousandth year of the One State, threatens the national security when he falls in love."
  • "Preceeding both Aldous Huxley's 'Brave new World' and George Orwell's 'Nineteen eighty-four', 'We' was first published in America, and then Czechoslovakia, in 1924. It is a dystopian fantasy, never published in Soviet Russia, which Zamyatin left in 1931."
  • "A dystopian novel completed in 1921, written in response to the author's personal experiences with the Russian revolutions of 1905 and 1917, his life in the Newcastle suburb of Jesmond and work in the Tyne shipyards at nearby Wallsend during the First World War. It was at Tyneside that he observed the rationalization of labour on a large scale. The book influenced Orwell's 1984 and possibly Huxley's Brave new world."
  • "Translated by Natasha Randall Foreword by Bruce Sterling Written in 1921, We is set in the One State, where all live for the collective good and individual freedom does not exist. The novel takes the form of the diary of mathematician D-503, who, to his shock, experiences the most disruptive emotion imaginable: love. At once satirical and sobering'and now available in a powerful new translation'We is both a rediscovered classic and a work of tremendous relevance to our own times. From the Trade Paperback edition."@en
