We by Yevgeny Zamyatin is a landmark work of modern dystopian satire. This special Folio edition features a unique lenticular slipcase and an introduction by acclaimed novelist Ursula K. Le Guin. 

The best single work of science fiction yet written
Ursula K. Le Guin

Written in 1921 and banned in its native Russia until 1988, We is a uniquely prophetic dystopian satire, fearlessly excoriating the very concept of censorship and predicting the rise of Stalinism. George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley both stand as foundation stones of science-fiction literature, but neither might have existed without this remarkable book.

In the far-future city of OneState, happiness has been reduced to a simple equation: remove freedom and choice, and create contentment for all. Celebrated mathematician D-503 fully embraces the rule of the all-powerful Benefactor until the beautiful and mysterious I-330 comes into his life. A dangerous revolutionary, she throws the strict rhythms of his existence into chaos, and soon D-503 finds himself diagnosed with that most degrading of ancient diseases – the ownership of a soul.
