              'The mass of the rich and the poor are differentiated by their incomes and nothing else, and the average millionaire is only the average dishwasher dressed in a new suit.' In 1928 the young George Orwell arrived in Paris, a city known as a thriving art scene and home to some of l...iterature's most esteemed figures. It was not long before the money ran out, and Orwell, now destitute, was forced to take on the menial work of a dishwasher to survive. Drawing on Orwell's own experiences, Down and Out in Paris and London lays bare the realities of life amongst the poorest members of society and reveals a hidden world of drudgery, squalor and anxiety. This insightful memoir brings home the evils of poverty and reminds us that before we judge those less fortunate than ourselves, we first should live as they do.

              In the twilight years of the British Empire in Burma, bigotry, corruption, and intolerance are the order of the day. When the white timber merchant befriends the Indian doctor Veraswami, he soon finds himself alienated from his British compatriots - and even from the woman he hop...es will become his wife - as they cannot countenance the idea of racial equality. Meanwhile, the unscrupulous official U Ko Phin does everything to advance his own station - no matter who he may hurt in the process. Based on Orwell's own experiences as a policeman in Burma in the 1920s, it presents a shocking and revealing portrait of British colonial society and the terrible effects of empire on both the colonisers and the colonised.
