Churchill and Ireland

Notre Dame, Indiana: University of Notre Dame Press, 1964. First edition. Hardcover. Churchill's father, Lord Randolph, had vigorously supported the Ulster Unionists. Over time, Winston came to support Home Rule, and by the eve of the First World War was an advocate. The Home Rule crisis of 1912-1914 was sidelined by the outbreak of World War I. Nonetheless, Churchill would ultimately introduce the Irish Free State Bill, which won passage in 1922. Bibliographer Curt Zoller called this volume "The best study to date of Churchill's bittersweet experiences with Ireland and the Irish..." covering "everything from his earliest years in Dublin through the Irish revolt in World War I, his efforts in drafting the Irish Treaty in 1921, and the problem of Eire's neutrality in World War II. Well indexed and comprehensive." This copy is very good in a good dust jacket. The binding is square and tight, but with some barely discernible mottling to the boards. The contents are crisp and bright with no spotting or previous ownership marks. The dust jacket is neatly price-clipped at the upper front flap, but is otherwise complete with toning and staining to the spine. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A240. Item #004125

Price: $20.00
