Kim tells the story of Kimball OHara, an orphaned Irish boy growing up in late nineteenth-century India, and his quest for identity as he strives to reconcile his Western inheritance with the Indian life he has always known. This edition sets the novel in the context of the historical period and addresses Kiplings ambivalent relationship with India, the Empires treatment of the other classes and races who worked to maintain the British presence in India, and the place of Kim in Kiplings career as a writer.

Appendices include contemporary reviews of the novel and historical documents on Britains and Russias struggle for control of Asia, Indian colonization, and the writing of Kim.
