- The Unique Characters of 1984 and Animal Farm and Burmese Days        George Orwell, an alias of Eric Arthur Blair, is know for the books 1984 and Animal Farm.

The statistics they provide are thus arguably not exact. To a certain extent one could infer they are reflections of society, of those who present the data and most importantly of those who accumulate it....   [tags: Race and the Criminal Justice System]
