A collection of short stories and poems, alternating, by Kipling, in one of his lesser-known works.  Each story has a different theme; for example, the battle between conservatism and liberalism in ‘The Mother Hive’, a description of a futuristic airship in ‘With the Night Mail’, and a questionable cotton business in India in ‘A Deal in Cotton’.
