DescriptionANIMAL FARM George Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution is an intimate part of our contemporary culture. It is the account of the bold struggle, initiated by the animals, that transforms Mr. Jones's Manor Farm into Animal Farm--a wholly democratic society built on the credo that All Animals Are Created Equal. Out of their cleverness, the pigs Napoleon, Squealer, and Snowball emerge as leaders of the new community in a subtle evolution that proves disastrous. The climax is the brutal betrayal of the faithful horse Boxer, when totalitarian rule is reestablished with the bloodstained postscript to the founding slogan: But some Animals Are More Equal Than Others. . . . 1984 In 1984, London is a grim city where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be.

A Fantastic Package!
One of my favorite, if not my favorite book ever written is placed in the same package as Animal Farm, one of the triumphs of historical allegory.
The book is of very high build quality; the paper is easy to read and on the eyes, while the hardcover doesn't get in the way and has a nice texture to it, including the dust jacket.
The introduction by Christopher Hitchens was well written and added a little extra to the already great deal.
The books themselves need no introduction.
If you don't have these books, this is where to get them. by Mitch Wellstead
