When Lemuel Gulliver sets off from London on a sea voyage, little does he know the many incredible and unbelievable misadventures awaiting. Shipwrecked at sea and nearly drowned, he washes ashore upon an exotic island called Liliput--where the people are only six inches tall! Next he visits a land of incredible giants called the Brobdingnagians. They are more than sixty feet tall! he travels to Lapauta, a city that floats in the city, and to Glubbdubdrib, the Island of Sorcerers. his final voyage brings him into contact with the Yahoos--a brutish race of subhumans--and an intelligent and virtuous race of horse, the Houyhnhnms.

"Gulliver's Travels" is an incisive satire that has never lost its sting - whether the work of an embittered mind or a profound comment on the Age of Reason and Nature, there is all the fascination of distorting mirrors in Swift's accounts of Lilliput and Brogdingnag, and far more than mere spleen in the saeva indignatio with which he lashes human passions and institutions.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

Summary: To say this is a classic of political and social satire is unfair, because Swift INVENTED the genre with this raucous novel. The wayward traveler - Lemuel Gulliver - ends up on a series of bizarrely populated islands. First he is a giant among little people, but then sees the situation reversed when he's surrounded by giants twelve times his size. Next he finds himself in the clouds, in a society of devoted but ultimately hapless mathematicians. Lastly, his journey brings him to an island where incredibly noble horses must deal with a race of uncouth, reviled ape-men: the Yahoos. The satire is thick and unrelenting, but certainly not specific to the time and situation when Swift wrote it, and thus it has been read and beloved for centuries.
