The fourth volume of Churchill’s collected postwar speeches (February 7, 1951 – December 11, 1952), encompasses Churchill’s return as Prime Minister amidst battles with Labour over rationing and all manifestations of socialism, as well as debates on Red China and the Korean War.
This is a very good First English edition copy, in an edge-chipped dust jacket with fractional loss across the upper edges and along the spine. The front hinge is beginning to give and there is a light tanning shadow line along the front and rear free endpapers. The contents are fine and unfoxed.
