Product description

Britain in the year 1990. A country run by the bureaucrats of the all-powerful Public Control Department. Hundreds of thousands of civil servants, earnest, hardworking, sincere men, are all beavering away at exposing all possible and imaginary threats to the country. In order to do their job, they can command sophisticated electronic surveillance of anyone suspected of opposing the status quo; ruthless suppression of independent thought in Special State brainwashing units cunningly disguised as humane rest-homes; and strict rationing of food and alcohol.

Hard back book with dust jacket. The dust jacket has various scuff marks but is generally in very good condition. The book is also in very good condition with no damage or annotations to the pages.

First British hard cover publication. Novelization by Maureen Gregson, based on the series created by Wilfred Greatorex.
