Review:

"This dynamic anthology does an excellent job of combining social histroy with biography and passionate politics. The leaders speak with immediacy and conviction. Landmark moments are captured here. Besides a general historical overview, headnotes provide historical context and a brief analysis. The contents page is annotated, and a useful appendix provides a one-page biography of each speaker. The voices, heard from a public platform and directed to a wide audience, have a wonderful informality that is much more accessible than written analysis. Students will find this a gripping collection for their personal interest and for research."
-- Booklist (October 2001) (Booklist 20011015)

"This collection brings together speeches by some of the most distinguished political leaders of the twentieth century together with political analysis. Each speech is introduced by a brief historical and political discussion, and a general introduction gives a helpful overview and precise historical context. The combination of the original speeches and the present day analysis provides a fine starting point for reports and class discussion."
