Winston Smith is a clerk at the Ministry of Truth whose job is to rewrite newspaper headlines to change the past and provide a more positive image of the government. Winston buys a diary and starts to write in a corner in his apartment where he is hidden from the omnipresent television screens that monitor the entire populace. He is drawn into a forbidden loveual liaison with Julia, a co-worker from the Ministry. But they are discovered and he is arrested and taken to be tortured, broken and made into a good citizen again. George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949) is a literary classic – not just an sf classic, but one that has become set texts in various English literature classes. In terms of sf it is the single most influential Dystopian work, with dozens of books and films having borrowed the imagery of Orwell’s malevolently omnipresent totalitarian state and its breaking of the individual’s spirit. There are no more potent and savage a series of indictments of the anonymous machinery of totalitarian power than the images that Orwell emphasizes – of the future of the omniscient state as a boot stamping into the face of humanity forever, or of O’Brien holding his fingers up before Winston to ask how many he sees – “Four” “And if the state says three fingers, how many do you see?” Terms like Newspeak and Big Brother have gone on into general recognition – most recently it even became the name of a reality tv series Big Brother (2001– ) wherein contestants are placed in a house wired with tv cameras – and phrases like ‘Orwellian’ or a ‘1984 scenario’ are frequently used to suggest a totalitarian nightmare. Orwell was in reality Eric Blair (1903-50). Blair came from a lower middle-class British family – his father was a civil servant who worked in the Opium Department in India. Blair for a time joined the Indian Imperial Police and then went to fight for the socialist cause in the Spanish Civil War. But it was back in England that he found his calling as a writer, with non– and semi-fictional works such as Down and Out in London and Paris (1934), A Clergyman’s Daughter (1935), Keep the Aspidistra Flying (1936) and The Road to Wigan Pier (1937). Throughout all of Blair/Orwell’s work is a strong feeling of empathy for the poor and working classes and a desire to act as moral voice and tell their story. Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949) was Orwell’s last and greatest book. He was suffering from tuberculosis when he wrote it, something that casts a grim shadow of suffering over the book, and died a matter of months after it was published.

As seller we cannot influence the speed of the mail. Customer service (also known as Client Service) is the provision of service to customers before, during and after a purchase. Its importance varies by product, industry and customer. As an example, an expert customer might require less pre-purchase service (i.e., advice) than a novice. In many cases, customer service is important if the purchase relates to a “service” as opposed to a “product". Customer service may be provided by a person (e.g., sales and service representative), or by automated means called self-service. Examples of self service are Internet sites. Customer service is normally an integral part of a company’s customer value proposition. We do not offer CS in the traditional sense, nor as outlined here. Thus you must read and agree to all provisions set forth in this auction. Shipping costs are always included in the final sales price. We usually use drop ship services. Some drop shipping retailers may keep "show" items on display in stores, so that customers can inspect an item similar to those that they can purchase. Other retailers may provide only a catalogue or website. A customized packing slip may also be included by the wholesaler, indicating the retailer's company name, logo, and/or contact information. Drop shipping can occur when a small retailer who typically sells in small quantities to the general public receives a single large order for a product. Rather than route the shipment through the retail store, the retailer may arrange for the goods to be shipped directly to the customer. Many sellers on online auction sites, such as eBay, also drop ship. Often, a seller will list an item as new and ship the item directly from the wholesaler to the highest bidder. The seller profits from the difference between the winning bid and the wholesale price, minus any selling and merchant fees from the auction site. We may sell an item that even though it has been tested, may not work. Thus, all items are sold as is, no warranties.

Les marques et marques commerciales mentionnées appartiennent à leurs propriétaires respectifs. En droit public français, le domaine public est l'ensemble des biens (immeubles ou meubles, la domanialité publique des meubles étant controversée) appartenant à l'État, à des collectivités locales et à des établissements publics et affectés à une utilité publique. Cette utilité publique peut résulter d'une affectation à l'usage direct du public (comme les routes ou les jardins publics) ou à un service public, pourvu, dans ce dernier cas, que le bien ait été spécialement affecté à cette fin (comme une université ou un tribunal). Le code général de la propriété des personnes publiques a repris cette notion mais en précisant que l'aménagement doit être « indispensable » à la mission de service public : il s'agit de freiner l'évolution de la jurisprudence qui avait tendance à trop étendre le domaine public. Cela amène même certains à s'interroger sur l'utilité de conserver le principe d'inaliénablilité du domaine public. Ces interrogations résultent d'une variation d'approches de la notion de domaine public: autrefois, zone à protéger contre les dilapidations royales, aujourd'hui, il apparaît comme une richesse à exploiter.Livraison et expédition TB.
