Summary Why Kipling today? Why do postcolonial discourses, as well as popular culture and journalism, keep referring back to him, as a byword for imperialism and its ideologies? Kipling and Beyond reasses Kipling's texts and their reception and asks why Kipling continues to be a significant cultural icon. Featuring an internationally distinguished list of contributors, the collection offers fresh re-readings of Kipling's texts in order to explore new approaches to postcolonial studies; it critically examines our nostalgic gaze towards the colonial legacy, and what this means in the context of today's Anglo-American globalization
