In the course of his famous travels, Gulliver is captured by miniature people who wage war on each other because of religious disagreement over how to crack eggs, is sexually assaulted by giants, visits a floating island, and decides that the society of horses is better than that of his fellow man. Swift's tough, filthy and incisive satire has much to say about the state of the world today and is presented here in its unexpurgated entirety.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Swift's world-famous satire was an instant bestseller...his vision is dark, often verging on the obscene" -- Robert McCrum * Guardian *
"It is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery" -- John Gay (author of The Beggar's Opera)
"It has entered the iconography of western culture as perhaps no other single novel, giving words to the English language and inspiring remarkably diverse acts of homage... A political comedy, an existentialist meditation, a bleak thriller about an outsider caught between worlds...at the heart of Swift's masterwork is an ennobling sadness, a lament for a world gone mad" -- Joseph O'Connor * Guardian *
"Among the six indispensable books in world literature" -- George Orwell
"Everyone standing for political office . . . should have a compulsory examination in Gulliver's Travels" -- Michael Foot
