Challenging received opinion and breaking new ground in Kipling scholarship, these essays on Kipling's attitudes to the First World War, to the culture of Edwardian England, to homosexuality and to Jewishness, bring historical, literary critical and postcolonial approaches to this perennially controversial writer. The Introduction situates the book in the context of Kipling's changing reputation and of recent Kipling scholarship. After the perspectives of Chesterton (1905), Orwell (1942) and Jarrell (1960), newer contributions address Kipling's approach to the Boer war, his involvement with World War One, his Englishness and the politics of literary quotation. Different aspects of Kipling's relation to India are explored, including the 'Mutiny', Eastern religions, his Indian travel writings and his knowledge of 'the vernacular'. This collection, whose contributors include Hugh Brogan, Dan Jacobson, Daniel Karlin and Bryan Cheyette, is essential reading for academics and students of Kipling, Victorian and Edwardian English literature and cultural history.

The account of a Suffolk family from Woolpit and two of its sons; - one from England and the other from New Zealand. One would experience the plight of those at Gallipoli, Egypt, and in Palestine, while the other would have his destiny played out on the Western Front in France. This is a true story that covers hardship and sacrifice; from prison hulks on the Thames to the vagaries of WW1 at sea, on the ground, and in the air. It takes the reader on the journeys of New Zealand's hospital ships, to air attacks at Gallipoli, and Zeppelins over England; from U boats and disaster at sea, to the horrors of the battle of the Somme. It was a time when love, hardship and duty were forged together with the fighting of a war that was supposedly the War to End all Wars'.
