From Moses' delivery of the Ten Commandments to Nelson Mandela's "Let freedom reign", the world has been transformed by memorable speeches. This unique collection captures the drama of history in the making. Cromwell proclaimed "In the name of God, go!", Martin Luther King cried "I have a dream". At the foundation of the United States, Jefferson spoke of "Equal and exact justice to all", and later Lincoln demanded "Government of the people, by the people, for the people". At a defining moment in the twentieth century Mahatma Gandhi proclaimed "non-violence is the first article of my faith" while Hitler ranted "My patience is now at an end" and Churchill responded "This was their finest hour". In Speeches That Changed the World every speech represents a strategic turning point in history. Together they offer a wealth of material for schools and colleges while also providing a fascinating insight into the power of oratory.
