Second impression: bumped at foot of spine (causing some internal creasing), a little foxing to edges.

This is the wrappered issue, a bound edition was published at the same time. The 30s are characterized as Churchill's wilderness years, with his unrelenting opposition to Hitler being seen as the main cause for his ostracism. However "another, and earlier reason lay in his bitter opposition to Baldwin's India policy… Churchill had always hit hard; not for him a round of gentlemanly sparring between friends. His fight to maintain full control of India employed not just the clenched fist but the bludgeon" (Woods, Artillery of Words: the Writings of Sir Winston Churchill, p. 69).
