A collection of the most important speeches given since 1900.
There are speeches about power and about equality. There are speeches of hate and those of hope, of compassion and sorrow, politics and diplomacy, war and peace, freedom and justice. What they have in common is the rhetoric - the power of persuasion. These speeches carry the hopes and regrets of the modern world, and become even more powerful and poignant with the passage of time.
