Catalogue Note

A Clockwork Orange is Burgess' dystopian view of a near-future Britain beset by urban violence, technological excess, and authoritarianism. The ending was altered for the American edition published in 1963, with the last chapter being left out; it was not until much later that the novel was re-issued with the original ending restored. The classic 1971 film of the book by Stanley Kubrick was based on the text of the first American edition.
