Quick Overview

This volume helps readers situate one of the most popular adventure novels ever written, Gulliver's Travels, within the 18th-century process of inventing and resisting Great Britain. Ideas of nationalism--both Irish and British--are questioned and explored. Gulliver's Travels is interpreted as a critique of British colonial aggression, and has special appeal for courses in British literature and Irish studies. Supplemental materials include additional writings by Swift, such as pamphlets (including the famous A Modest Proposal), sermons, poems, and letters. A wealth of critical essays adds further context.

How we describe the condition of our books

We are very proud of the condition of the books we sell (please read our testimonials to find out more!)

New: Exactly as it says.

As New: Pretty much new but shows small signs of having been read; inside it will be clean without any inscriptions or stamps; might contain a remainder mark.

Very Good: Might have some creases on the spine; no hard cracks; maybe slight forward lean and short inscription inside; perhaps very minor bumping on the corners of the book; inside clean but the page edges might be slightly yellowed.

Good: A few creases on the spine, perhaps a forward lean, bumping on corners or shelfwear; maybe an inscription inside or some shelfwear or a small tear or two on the dustjacket; inside but page edges might be somewhat yellowed.

Fair: In overall good condition, might have a severe forward lean to the spine, an inscription, bumping to corners; one or two folds on the covers and yellowed pages; in exceptional cases these books might contain some library stamps and stickers or have neat sticky tape which was used to fix a short, closed tear.

Poor: We rarely sell poor condition books, unless the books are in demand and difficult to find in a better condition. Poor condition books are still perfect for a good read, all pages will be intact and none threatening to fall out; most probably a reading copy only.
