The passing of time allows many speeches to take on a deeper meaning and poignancy. Others have become an iconic part of our times.
Alan J. Whiticker’s Speeches that Shaped the World is a collection of the most potent and memorable speeches throughout history. These speeches highlight recurring themes such as politics and power, war and peace, civil rights and human rights. What they all have in common is the power to inspire—emotionally, politically and socially.
In this brilliant collection, many of history’s greatest orators and pivotal moments are featured—Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have a Dream’, Winston Churchill’s ‘We Shall Fight on the Beaches’, Mahatma Gandhi’s ‘Quit India’, Malala Yousafzai’s ‘A World at School Speech’, Steve Jobs’ ‘Stanford University Commencement Address’, Barack Obama’s ‘Gun Safety Reform’ to name a few.
Different eras and many nations are represented within these pages. Each speech is presented along with its historical context and the biographical background of the speaker to enhance your reading experience.
