A collection of great and powerful speeches that affected the world as we know it.

Speeches that Shaped the Modern World is a collection of the potent and memorable speeches delivered since the beginning of the 20th Century. Memorable images bring the speaker's personality to us and make this book a fascinating journey through time. The collection includes recurring themes including: politics and diplomacy, war and peace, freedom and justice, civil rights and human rights. What they all have in common is the rhetoric: the power of persuasion. The speeches reflect historic events of one of the most cataclysmic centuries as told by its heroes, villains, martyrs and monsters. Josef Stalin and Mahatma Gandhi speak side by side with Nelson Mandela, Joseph McCarthy, the Kennedy brothers and Fidel Castro. Speeches by George W Bush and Arundhati Roy bring the book right up to date with conflicting views of our modern world.
