The text--that of the 1901 Sussex Edition--is fully annotated and accompanied by three maps that help students place the novel in geographical and historical contexts. "Backgrounds" explores the novel's complicated issues of multiculturalism, imperialism, and racism, allowing readers to glimpse Kipling's personal thoughts about British expansionism.? Included are two short stories, poems, and letters by Kipling, as well as autobiographical and biographical memoirs and contemporary reviews of Kim. "Criticism" collects fourteen wide-ranging assessments of the novel by Noel Annan, Irving Howe, Edward Said, Ian Baucom, A. Michael Matin, John A. McClure, Anne Parry, Michael Hollington, Parama Roy, Sara Suleri, Patrick Williams, Suvir Kaul, Mark Kinkead-Weekes, and Zohreh T. Sullivan. A Chronology and a Selected Bibliography are included.… (mehr)

The forerunner of the Spy-Thriller genre, Kim is now a somewhat dated story & Kipling's narrative exhibits some of the 'white man superiority' perspective that is now correctly frowned upon: however, read as a yarn encapsulating the period its central story & characters cover it is not only one of Kipling's best novels, but also a fine contribution to the evolution of western literature.

I think the reason so much criticism has been written on this book is because there are many out there who feel as I do -- that this is a delightful, even beloved novel... but we only wish it took a strong enough stance against British imperialism and other social ills to be a *perfect* book. It's not a perfect book, it is an undeniably problematic book. But beloved nonetheless. ( )

I've now listened to this book over the past several weeks and I honestly don't know what I think about it. It makes sense this was originally a serial in a magazine and I think it would have been more enjoyable that way. It was a long story of numerous adventures and the storytelling was definitely interesting as was learning about 19th century India. ( )

'Kim', taken solely on its own terms, is a late 19th century adventure tale, an early spy story, a travelogue of northern India, a coming-of-age story all set in the midst of the Great Game, the Russo-British contest for imperial dominance in Central Asia. It's a good tale well told, if the language is somewhat dated for the modern reader.

But, of course, 'Kim' is generally not simply taken on it own terms because its author Rudyard Kipling came to personify British imperialism as much as Lord Kitchener. The Norton Edition includes excellent articles that provide historical context as well as several critical essays. I consider myself an anti-imperialist, but also admittedly somewhat of a romantic about the British Empire, and I did not detect jingoism in 'Kim'.

At the end of the day, 'Kim' is quite a good adventure tale and a book that really need to read for yourself. ( )
