From the Inside Flap:

One of Melville's most popular novels during his lifetime—and the subject of renewed interest in recent decades—White-Jacket is both a brisk sea adventure and a powerful social critique. Based on Melville's own experiences, it explores the fascinating and often harrowing world of a naval fighting ship, the Neversink. The ship becomes for Melville a microcosm of America itself; its hierarchy, social divisions, and cruel practices suggest larger injustices, including slavery.

This Modern Library Paperback Classic reproduces the definitive Northwestern-Newberry Edition.

From the Back Cover:

The aim of this edition of 'White-Jacket, ' the fifth volume in the Northwestern-Newberry Edition of 'The Writings of Herman Melville, ' is to present a text as close to the author's intention as surviving evidence permits.
