Read the ideas, musings and declarations from some of history's most poignant moments.

Speeches that Made History contains a selection of quotes, off-the-cuff remarks, retorts and announcements from across the world and from a wealth of opinions and ideologies, accompanied by a short background note to put them into context. 
Covering speeches from as early as 73 BC through to the modern day, they provide a broad picture of the way the use of rhetoric has changed - from the lengthy, impassioned speeches of the pre-mass communications era to the three-minute address or even shorter soundbite common now. 
From Descartes to Karl Marx, Barack Obama to Gandhi, some words are easy for all to agree with - others not so easy - and some contain ideas repellant to almost everyone. Hopefully, all will provoke thought.

Chapters include:
Ancient History
Love
Religion
Science
Patriotism
Philosophy
Humanity & Liberty
Sport
Politics
War
Miscellaneous
