In a radical departure from standard editions, Twain's most famous
novels are published here as the continuous narrative that the
author originally envisioned. More controversial will be the
decision by the editor, noted Mark Twain scholar Alan Gribben, to
eliminate the pejorative racial labels that Twain employed in his
effort to write realistically about social attitudes of the 1840s.
Gribben points out that dozens of other editions currently make
available the inflammatory words, but their presence has gradually
diminished the potential audience for two of Twain's masterpieces.
