Words that Ring Through Time: The Fifty Most Important Speeches in History and How they Changed Our World (Hardcover)

AUTHOR: Terry Golway

GENRE: Non-fiction

The 50 most important speeches of all time: their context, history and meaning for our world.

The speeches remembered by history are rarely remembered in context; but it was almost always the context, not the speech itself, that made each address so significant.

Terry Golway has selected 50 speeches that changed the world through the sheer power of their oratory. From Moses to Mandela and others from across time and around the world, Golway’s selections are each illuminated with an insightful essay setting the speech squarely in its historical contexts and detailing its impact and consequences.

In doing so, Golway allows us to fully understand their importance and effect.
