the world and the way the world is shaped. The Penguin Book of
Historic Speeches gathers together the world's greatest speeches,
bringing together the words of over one hundred men and women.
These brilliant and passionate declarations by Socrates,
Robespierre, Lincoln, Queen Elizabeth I, Churchill, Washington,
Pankhurst, Gandhi and many others provide a vivid glimpse of
history in the making while retaining their power to move and
inspire today. 'Impeccable. MacArthur prefaces each address with a
short but scholarly historical explanation that sets the scene
perfectly. An attractive volume' Andrew Roberts, Sunday Times
