Críticas:

"The book has all the suspense of a thriller, though the final chapter lacks that genre's satisfactory tying off of all loose ends. Nevertheless, this is such a thorough, convincing, and entertaining telling of its chosen tale that it seems unlikely to be readily superseded."--Ina Bertrand, Screening the Past

"What emerges in this book is a fascinating study of the complex relationship between the political and cultural imperatives that go into the shaping of a single film. It is difficult to see any other account displacing Leab's as the definitive historical account of its production and reception. There are many monographs on individual films, but few that demonstrate this level of detail."--James Chapman, University of Leicester

"Leab, editor of the journal American Communist History and author of I Was a Communist for the FBI and many articles on Hollywood's Cold War films, knows this period well. His thorough research uncovered correspondence and financial information in archives in both the United States and England that allowed him to compile the most complete account to date of the film's production."--Susan Ryan, Cineaste

"A first-rate book. Orwell Subverted breaks entirely new ground in its thorough treatment of the role of the American filmmaker Louis de Rochemont in the story of the filming and distribution of Animal Farm."--John Rodden, University of Texas

"Leab has provided an exhaustively researched and compellingly told account of the making of Animal Farm and the role of the CIA in its production. Orwell Subverted is a valuable addition to the scholarly interest in the role of film as a medium of propaganda and the involvement of government agencies with the film industry that has been advanced since the 1970s by members of the International Association of Media and History (IAMHIST)."

Reseña del editor:

Since its release in 1954, scholars have been aware of the Central Intelligence Agency's involvement in the making of the controversial animated motion picture adaptation of George Orwell's Animal Farm. In Orwell Subverted, Daniel Leab gives an authoritative and well-documented account of the CIA's powerful influence on the film.

Recently, a number of works have been written--notably, those by Frances Stoner Saunders and Tony Shaw--that make reference to the underlying governmental control surrounding Animal Farm. Yet there is still much speculation and confusion as to the depth of the CIA's interference. Leab continues where these authors left off, exploring the CIA's dominant hand through extensive research and by giving fascinating details of the agency's overt and subtle influences on the making of the film. Leab's thorough investigating makes use of sources that have been excluded in past accounts, such as CIA papers retrieved through the Freedom of Information Act and material from the Orwell Archive. He also incorporates the testimonials of animators John Halas and Joy Batchelor and, most significantly, the previously unexplored archive documents of Animal Farm producer Louis de Rochemont.
