Along with works by Kipling and Haggard, this is a good example of British Imperialist fiction, a genre that would inspire Americans like Edgar Rice Burroughs ("Tarzan") and the Indiana Jones series. This books were often adventure stories set in various British colonies (India, South Africa, Sudan) that implicitly celebrated British superiority and culture. This was filmed several times and the 1939 film is more engaging than the book, which drags a bit and will bore those who have no taste for English ideas of honor, courage, and stiff up lip-ism.
