KIPCOVERFRONT-webBy Rudyard Kipling. “Thus for the good of your peoples – thus for the Pride of the Race.

Also, we will make promise.  So long as The Blood endures,

I shall know that your good is mine:  ye shall feel that my strength is yours…”

Winner of the 1907 Nobel Prize for literature, Rudyard Kipling was the foremost English poet and writer of the twentieth century. Best known for his “Jungle Book” series of stories, his literary efforts included a vast selection of nationalistic and racially-themed poetry, gathered together in this volume for the first time. His topics were diverse: ancient Rome, the American War of Independence, Celts, Saxons, Normans, Vikings, Napoleon, the Anglo-Boer War, the danger of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, parliament and the press—and much more.

From these works, Kipling’s status as the foremost “White Man’s Poet” is evident. Although primarily a British—and English—nationalist, he was strongly racial in his world view, and consistently pointed out its importance in determining the fate of nations.

From his well-known “The White Man’s Burden” to his equally vivid “The Song of the White Men”; from his appeal to the past in “The Heritage” to his call for racial homogeneity in “The Stranger”, Kipling stands out head and shoulders as one of the most important icons of contemporary European literature and culture.

This specially selected sampling of his greatest nationalist poems is accompanied by a new introduction which provides a pen sketch of his life and his nascent political activism—which included the founding of the anti-Communist Liberty League along with his friend H. Rider Haggard.
