From a Pulitzer Prize–winning author, this collection of speeches is “the most valuable kind of book, the kind that benefits mind and heart” (Peggy Noonan).
This third edition of the bestselling collection of classic and modern oratory offers numerous examples of the greatest speeches ever delivered—from the ancient world to the modern. Speeches in this edition span a broad stretch of history, from General George Patton inspiring Allied troops on the eve of D-Day to Pericles’ impassioned eulogy for fallen Greek soldiers during the Peloponnesian War; and from Jesus of Nazareth’s greatest sermons to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s fiery speech in response to the Bush vs. Gore decision that changed the landscape of American politics in our time.
Editor William Safire has collected a diverse range of speeches from both ancient and modern times, from people of many different backgrounds and political affiliations, and from people on both sides of history’s greatest battles and events. This book provides a wealth of valuable examples of great oratory for writers, speakers, and history aficionados.
