Overview

Coinciding with the twentieth anniversary of his inauguration and the commission of the USS George H.W. Bush, a collection of the forty-first president’s speeches.

Here, in his own words, is the record of George H.W. Bush’s presidency. Chosen and annotated by former President Bush, these forty-two speeches reflect his concerns, his political philosophy, and the triumphs and challenges of his years in office. Whether accepting the nomination, speaking to the Armed Forces in the Persian Gulf, presenting Presidential Citations to Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams, or marking the 50th anniversary of Pearl Harbor, these speeches, great and small, defined the first Bush years.

Marking significant events in world history, including the fall of the Berlin Wall, the collapse of communism in the Soviet Union, and U.S. military action against Iraq, this collection documents a transformative period in world history and the voice and politics of one of our great leaders.

    freedoms true colors

    this is former president george hw bushs newest book. it is a collection of his newest and most historic speechs. i found them to be most intresting because some times you dont get the full story from a newscaster or some reporter sitting state side who wasnt there. this is a most remarkable collection of speechs from some of the most histoic moments and places in life that I will never forget and I will be able to read this book and see the presidents comments and photos and find out what he was thinking and feeling at the time and this will be a very historic collectible cause it will have some of the best speechs of both political and international so I will be able to refer back to it for a long time.
