A study of George Orwell; the man and his works by Christopher Hollis( Book )

18 editions published between 1956 and 2017 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Author Christopher Hollis knew George Orwell personally during his schooldays at Eton, afterwards in Burma, and at the end of his life. His study of Orwell's books is therefore illuminated by some anecdotes of reminiscence. However, it is important to note that this book is primarily a study rather than a biography. Hollis examines Orwell's books in order and traces through them the development of this unmatched literary giant's thought process. From the experiences described in Down and Out in Paris and London to the points in his life that began driving him toward socialism, A Study of George Orwell is a comprehensive overview of Orwell's work as it related to his personal life. Hollis guides the reader all the way through Orwell's oeuvre, including his two most famous books-Animal Farm and 1984-which are, arguably, the greatest literary protests of political power and tyranny ever penned. Portraying Orwell as a fearless champion of the common man and a follower in the footsteps of Jonathan Swift, Hollis offers a compelling review and analysis of Orwell's work as well as a perspective not found by the average, distant biographer

The achievements of Vatican II by Christopher Hollis( Book )

3 editions published in 1967 in English and Undetermined and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is not concerned with a description of personalities or to any large extent with a description of how things happened. Its task is the rather pedestrian one of summarizing what was decided at the Council translated, as it were, into unofficial language. We think that behind the generalities there is room for such a work, for many have found it difficult to follow its unfamiliar proceedings, so different from those of a parliament or a congress." [Chapter 1]
Erasmus by Christopher Hollis( Book )

Christianity and economics by Christopher Hollis( Book )

8 editions published between 1961 and 1962 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to describe the teaching of the Catholic Church on economics--the effect which the Catholic Church has had and ought to have had on the development of the world's economy. However, there is in fact nothing in the Gospels to suggest that the Lord was at all interested in setting out an economic system. The Church does not have a specific economic position, but it does point out the immoral and anti-religious aspects that pervade systems such as fascism and communism, and which are sometimes present in other doctrines
