Summary
"This volume discusses the theory that Gulliver's Travels was Swift's vehicle to condemn the African slave trade and promote the adoption of real rather than simply nominal Christianity. Dealing with quotes from the work itself, it demonstrates that Swift tells us his meaning with an abundance of clues and references which he left throughout Gulliver's Travels"--Provided by publisher
