Review:

"An excellent edition: I have used the Penguin edition, but yours is superior. The notes are much more useful, especially in a history class in which the context of the work is emphasized."--Winfield J.C. Meyers, University of Georgia"The best cheap paperback edition available with an excellent, informative, and readable introduction by Paul Turner."--W.G. Walton, Jr., Meredith College"This edition has excellent notes - better than Penguins. Aim for their market with more editions of this quality and you'll capture much of their market." --Winfield J. Myers, University of Georgia

From the Publisher:

Lemuel Gulliver, ship's surgeon and castaway, has awaken in Lilliput, where the size of the tiny inhabitants makes their concerns and quarrels seem ridiculous. A second journey takes him to the kingdom of giants, where again his size gives him new adrift by pirates, Gulliver's final voyage brings him to the land of the Houyhnhms, horses with reason, who share their domain with the brutish Yahoos. He returns to England a changed man.

Swift's corrosive satire embraces all aspects of humanity. It is witty when dealing with foibles and frailty, bitterly when facing pride and stupidity, but compassionate and unsentimental when focused upon suffering.
