The Book, this secret, vital piece of a ‘puzzle’ was a heavy black volume, amateurishly bound. There was no name or title on the cover. The print also looked slightly irregular. The pages were worn at the edges, and fell apart, easily, as though the book had passed through many hands.
The name of the Book was THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF OLIGARCHICAL COLLECTIVISM.
It was written by Emmanuel Goldstein.
The same Goldstein who was the target of the 2 minutes hate.
Winston began reading.
The coming pages will expose the basis of The Party philosophy; the rules of society that Winston Smith lives beneath.
