9780241953259: The Penguin Book of Modern Speeches

From Theodore Roosevelt to Barack Obama, from Gandhi to Mandela, the most significant speeches of the modern era

Whether the rousing words of Winston Churchill, the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Salman Rushdie’s denouncement of his fatwa, or the optimism of Barack Obama, speeches shape the way we understand ourselves and those around us like never before. Gathered here are some of the most extraordinary and memorable speeches of modern times. Some are well known, others are not, but all, in their way, have had a hand in shaping the world we now inhabit.

Originally published as The Penguin Book of Twentieth-Century Speeches, this new edition has been updated to include some of the most important speeches from the first decade of the new century.

About the Author:

Brian MacArthur was founding editor of Today and The Times Higher Education Supplement, editor of the Western Morning News, deputy editor of the Sunday Times and executive editor of The Times.

Review:

It would be hard to do better than MacArthur's selection, which is a tribute to the breadth of his knowledge * The Times * Time and again, MacArthur satisfies the reader's expectations. They are all here: Lloyd George's fit country for heroes, Woodrow Wilson's world made safe for democracy, Enoch Powell's River Tiber foaming with much blood. Those who hate the sound of public men may still find it hard to listen to MacArthur's voices and not be moved * The Times Literary Supplement *
