In this fascinating book, Chris Abbott, a leading political analyst, takes a close look at the ideas that have shaped modern society, and the power of those global beliefs to inspire people, for better or worse, to do great things. Abbott draws upon his political expertise to explain how our current understanding of concepts such as good and evil, equality and confrontation, peace and war, has its roots in pivotal moments of history. Those moments are captured in the words of a range of influential figures u from Emmeline Pankhurst, Dwight D Eisenhower and Ghandi, to Ronald Reagan, Tim Collins and Osama bin Laden. As well as providing transcripts, 21 Speeches that Shaped Our World explores themes such as 'might is right', 'with us or against us' and 'give peace a chance'. Fresh and relevant, this is a book that will make you stop in your tracks and really hear what is going on in the world today.

Throughout history, great speeches have produced great change. From inciting violence and asserting control to restoring peace and securing freedom, nothing has the raw emotional power of a speech delivered at the right moment, in the right place, with the right content, and the right delivery. 50 Speeches That Made The Modern World is a celebration of the most influential and thought-provoking speeches that have shaped the world we live in. With comprehensive, chronological coverage of speeches from the 20th and 21st centuries, taken from all corners of the globe, it covers Emmeline Pankhurst's patiently reasoned condemnation of men's failure to improve ordinary women's lives in 1908 through speeches by Vladimir Lenin, Mahatma Gandhi, David Ben-Gurion, Albert Einstein, Fidel Castro, Nikita Khrushchev, Ernesto 'Che' Guevara, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela, Benazir Bhutto, Osama Bin Laden and Aung San Suu Kyi, right up to the most compelling oratory surrounding the 2016 US Presidential elections. Through the rallying propaganda speeches during World War II to the cautious rhetoric of the Cold War period, through challenging the status quo on issues of race, gender and politics to public addresses to the masses on the issues of AIDS and terrorism, through apologies, complaints, warmongering, scaremongering and passionate pleas, this book delivers the most important speeches of the modern era and why they still remain so significant. Each speech has an introduction explaining its setting, importance and impact as well as marginal notes filling in any background information.

1945 was a chaotic year, both for the world and for Winston Churchill. The talismanic wartime leader had to deal with the death in April of his great ally and confidant Roosevelt. Soon afterwards, Churchill arrived at the Potsdam Conference expecting to broker peace with Stalin and Truman, only to find himself unable to attend the final summit sessions following a stunning defeat in one of the most lopsided General Election results in history. Having spent his 'wilderness years' in the late 1930s warning of the dangers of diplomatic and military weakness and the growing menace of Nazism, Churchill found himself again in the position of herald, sounding the alarm about the Communist threat to the freedom that he and his Allies had won at such a cost. Churchill's Cold War is the story of his pivotal speech which defined the Iron Curtain as the new threat to world peace and inspired the faith in political freedom that would one day see it pulled down. This is the story of how, having saved the free world once, Churchill's vision helped save it a second time. It is also a portrait of the irrepressible man whose words changed history at a moment when many had prematurely marked a plot for him in the political graveyard.
