About this book

Featuring an internationally distinguished list of contributors, Kipling and Beyond reassesses Kipling's texts and their reception in order to explore new approaches in postcolonial studies. The collection asks why Kipling continues to be a significant cultural icon and what this legacy means in the context of today's Anglo-American globalization.

Reviews

'Not only does this excellent collection offer much to those interested in Kipling, it will reward the attention of all who approach the texts of the past using postcolonial perspectives...From Rooney and Nagai's deeply considered introduction to the final pages, this is a highly stimulating and sophisticated volume.' - Howard J. Booth, Journal of Postcolonial Writing

' 'Why Kipling today?' is the question that the editors of Kipling and Beyond ask, the answer to which is persuasively and meticulously explored in this most excellent collection of essays by an internationally eminent field of scholars....In conclusion, the essays in this volume offer throughtful and nuanced readings of Kipling's texts and make a compelling case for why we must continue to celebrate and learn from Kipling in the twenty-first century' - Supriya Goswami, Wasafiri
