More Description

The book bridges disciplines-24 journals in literature, history, science, medicine, philosophy, religion and Ireland have acclaimed this classic fascinating, extraordinarily well-informed, careful and encyclopedic.

"Craven reminds us of Swift's uncanny foreknowledge that democratic governments tend toward a populace inundated by false information it cannot process, and leaders intent only upon power and the deceptions by which it is gained."-Melvyn New

"This new edition situates Swift's early masterpiece in its most resonant possible context - its savage critique of John Locke, whose life and philosophical work simultaneously served to legitimate government by popular sovereignty and to countenance colonial violence and slavery."-Clement Hawes
