1984 by George Orwell - This classic work details the dangers of a society with too much information, too much surveillance, and too much apathy on the part of its members.

This novel has had such an impact on Western society that it has coined phrases all its own, changing the very language here in America. An "Orwellian" society or something reminiscent of "1984" are phrases we all understand to mean a watchdog state of over-surveillance and tyranny.

This is a book that everyone, no matter their political affiliation, should read and give to their friends and family to read.
