The Great Game / Struggle for Empire in Central Asia book by Peter Hopkirk  "The Great Game: The Struggle For Empire In Central Asia" [1990]
by Peter Hopkirk

The geo-political 'Great Game' between Victorian England and Imperial Russia for dominance in India and neighboring nations began in the middle of the XIXth Century, continued thru World War I and the Russian Revolution to end only with Britain's post-World War II loss of world stature and with the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1980s. (Not so much here about Kipling and "Kim", consider the book 'deep background'.)
