This is the first edition, second and final printing, in the softcover ("wraps") binding. India is a collection of 10 speeches made by Churchill, which constituted an important part of his campaign against the India Bill over which he broke with his party s leadership. Though his cause was lost, these speeches are considered to contain some of the finest examples of Churchill's rhetorical brilliance. While Churchill did not adopt an early progressive attitude toward relinquishing control over the crown jewel of Britain's colonial empire, it is instructive to remember that many of Churchill's dire warnings about Indian independence proved prophetic. Churchill had warned that too swift a British withdrawal from India would lead to bloody civil war and sectarian strife between Hindus and Muslims, Hindu domination, and destabilizing political balkanization of the subcontinent. All these predictions came to pass and, to a considerable extent, they persist to this day. This first edition, second printing is bound in the exact same style as the first printing and was issued in the same month as the first printing; it differs only in that it has green, rather than orange, wraps. Due to the fragile nature of a wraps edition, most surviving copies suffer significant wear, soiling, and spotting. Here is very good copy. The green wraps binding remains virtually complete, with only fractional loss at the spine heel. We note modest spine toning, mild wear to hinges and corners, and creasing to the lower front cover corner. The contents are free of previous ownership marks. We note a large patch of spotting to the title page, but spotting is otherwise light, confined to page edges and a few blank inner margins.
