To Orwell Today,

Hello, Jackie!

First of all, let me congratulate you for the great work you've been doing with your website. It's one of the best internet resource sites I've found on Orwell's life and work.

I'm writing you from Brazil where I'm currently doing some researches for a thesis on Orwell and the Cold War and I wonder if you could help me with a specific topic. I read that Orwell was the one who created the term "cold war", but so far I've been unable to identify it on any of his writings. Would you, by any chance, know of any of his specific books or articles in which that reference could be found?

Thank you and keep up the great work!

Greetings Alex,

Yes, Orwell coined the term "Cold War" in his 1945 essay YOU AND THE ATOMIC BOMB.

The essay is so important I've created ORWELL COINED "COLD WAR" and bolded and underlined his key phrases.

Follow links there to other essays on the topic of Russia, China and America sharing nuclear technology with each other - for use against other nations - but never against themselves. Thus the term "Cold War".

Thank you for your kind comments about "Orwell Today" and it's great to have a reader from Brazil.

All the best,
Jackie Jura
