Kipling as you never knew him.
The whole shooting-box!
This startling compilation of Kipling's life and constant critique of the British Empire around him was a revelation to me. I have always admired him for seeing the Empire as it was. With this sympathetic reading he has become a true hero in my eyes. Well worth buying!
