The White Man’s Burden - What is the British Legacy?


Dennis Bertz Thygesen


Rudyard Kipling's poem, The White Man's Burden, has become an euphemism for imperialism but also a symbol of Eurocentric racism. What did Kipling himself mean by “the white man's burden”?
This multi-touch book examines the history of British colonialism, providing the best possible backdrop for an analysis of the poem itself. In addition, it aims at connecting Britain’s colonial past to the present by examining the British legacy still visible around the world.
The book can be used for history and English classes both depending on the subject focus.
