From declarations of war to demands for peace, and from cries of freedom to shouts of righteous anger, VOICES IN HISTORY is a stirring anthology celebrating more than fifty speeches that have shaped history. From the prophets of the great religions to Vladimir Putin's address in the Kremlin on the annexation of Crimea; and from 'I have a dream' to 'Make America great again', VOICES IN HISTORY spans eras, nations and many speakers - revolutionaries and tyrants, soldiers and statesmen, monarchs and martyrs. Each speech is accompanied by an introduction by acclaimed historian Simon Sebag Montefiore, which explains its historical background and its influence on the momentous events of the day, as well as those that followed. Moving and thought-provoking, VOICES IN HISTORY is an inspiring and enlightening perspective on historical milestones through the power of the spoken word.
