From Longman's Cultural Edition series, Rudyard Kipling's Kim, edited by Paula M. Krebs and Tricia Lootens, sets Kipling's most important novel in both its imperial and its literary contexts. Ever since its publication in 1900, Kipling's story of British India has catalyzed fantasies and debates over colonialism and imperialism. Through a series of selections from Kipling's poetry, travel writing, autobiography--and, crucially, his work as a young journalist--this edition offers students and teachers new ways of reading the tale of how the young streetwise Kim, "Little Friend of All the World," becomes both a Buddhist holy man's disciple and a British spy.
