This thesis started out as an attempt to analyze Winston Churchill's stand on India. It was then cut down to his speeches on India during the years from 1929 to the passage of the Government of India Bill in 1935. It has, more or less, remained in that form, with the addition of a short introduction which describes his earliest relationship with India. To understand the Churchill of the 1930's, one must understand the Churchill of the 1890's. It was for that reason included. I end with the passage of the India Bill for two reasons. The first was that after the passage, Mr. Churchill did not speak on India very much, and I did not have time to do a thorough research into his speeches. The second reason is that in 1935 and after, many of the things Mr. Churchill predicted came true, especially with regard to Hitler, Mussolini, appeasement and a war. This paper deals with the years of Mr. Churchill, the prophet, and stops when the prophesies start coming true.
