    [synopsis] => 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 a future police state.
In the far-future city of OneState, happiness has been, reduced to a simple equation: remove freedom and choice, and create contentment for all. In a city of straight lines, protected by green walls and a glass dome, a spaceship is being, built in order to spearhead the conquest of new planets. Its chief engineer, a man called D-503, keeps a journal of his life and activities: to his mathematical mind, everything seems to make sense and proceed as it should, until a chance encounter with a woman threatens to shatter the very foundations of the world he lives in. The beautiful and mysterious I-330, a dangerous revolutionary, throws the strict rhythms of D-503's existence into chaos, and he soon finds himself diagnosed with that most degrading of ancient diseases, the ownership of a soul.
Written in a highly charged, direct and concise style, Zamyatin's 1921 seminal novel is not only, an indictment of totalitarianism and a precursor of the works of Orwell and the dystopian genre, but also a prefiguration of much of twentieth-century history and a harbinger of the ominous future that may still lay ahead of us. We is a rediscovered classic and a work of tremendous relevance to our own times.
