Summary
"A great speech has the power to define the times, to inspire, to stir and to motivate. This collection of ancient and modern speeches includes the words of activists, politicians, philosophers and scores of others who have borne witness to significant moments from the first century to the twenty-first. Many have themselves made history. They include: Mahatma Gandhi, Oliver Cromwell, Kevin Rudd, Inga Clendinnen, Daniel Mannix, Napoleon Bonaparte, Oericles, Thomas Jefferson, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Arundhati Roy, the 9th Earl Spencer, Elanor Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Colin Powell, and the Dalai Lama. Great Speeches will make a great addition to every home and library shelf."--Publisher description
