  • The new introduction offers new historical and interpretative perspectives.
  • Detailed explanatory notes pay special attention to the literary, political, historical, and geographical allusions and implications of the novel.
  • A new note on sources complements the introduction.
  • Map, a chronology of the narrative, a glossary of foreign terms, and an appendix reprinting the serial ending.
