Description: Written by prominent writers and historians, each of the Oxford Portraits is designed to supplement the core texts of the middle and high school curriculum with animated, thoroughly informative profiles of the men and women who helped shape history. Each book is illustrated with numerous graphics, photographs, and documents. A unique feature is the inclusion of sidebars containing primary source material, mostly excerpts from the subject's writings. A chronology, further reading list, and index rounds about every volume.

This vivid biography chronicles the life of George Orwell (1903-1950), beginning with his birth in India. Orwell joined the Indian Imperial Police in Burma after graduating from Eton. Five years later, he quit and started traveling around Europe, often living on the street. He fought in the Spanish Civil War, worked as a reporter, and eventually wrote two of the most influential social satires of the 20th century, Animal Farm (1945) and 1984 (1948). Tanya Agathocleous includes numerous excerpts from Orwell's writings, while a final chapter explores Orwell's cultural legacy.
