Eamon de Valera, "India and Ireland" (1920)

Published by the New York-based Friends of Freedom for India, India and Ireland (1920) by Eamon De Valera, the leader of the revolutionary Irish Republic, is a pamphlet that provides a comparison between India and Ireland's colonization by the British. Throughout the text, de Valera draws on an another comparison of both colonies to the U.S., asking, "Were George Washington alive now, are we not certain that he would repeat these same words to pariots (sic) of Ireland of this day, and who doubts that he would couple, were he here tonight, the patriots of India with the patriots of Ireland?" The pamphlet is dedicated to the "memory of the martyrs who gave their lives to make India and Ireland free and independent."
