This is a special edition exclusively for use in Canadian Schools. Glossary included. There is some handwriting at the edge of some pages. From Wikipedia: "The story unfolds against the backdrop of The Great Game, the political conflict between Russia and Britain in Central Asia. The novel made the term "Great Game" popular and introduced the theme of great power rivalry and intrigue. It is set after the Second Afghan War which ended in 1881, but before the Third, probably in the period 1893 to 1898. The novel is notable for its detailed portrait of the people, culture, and varied religions of India." Buy more than one kijiji item and pay less.
