With a new Introduction by Cedric Watts, Research Professor of English, University of Sussex.

Kim is Rudyard Kiplings finest work. Now controversial, this novel is a memorably vivid evocation of the life and landscapes of India in the late nineteenth century. Kim himself is a resourceful lad who befriends a lama, an ageing priest; and both embark on a combined quest. Whereas Kim has an insatiable interest in the varied activities around him, the lama seeks redemption from the Wheel of Life. Kim becomes involved in the Great Game:, undertaking espionage for the British rulers.

This engrossing and moving novel, with its diversity of memorable characters, offers many insights into political, religious and social tensions.
