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.

The room darkens and grows hushed, all eyes to the front as the screen comes to life. Eagerly the audience starts to thumb the pages of their handouts, following along breathlessly as the slides go by one after the other...We're not sure what the expected outcome was when PowerPoint first emerged as the industry standard model of presentation, but reality has shown few positive results. Research reveals that there is much about this format that audiences positively dislike, and that the old school rules of classical rhetoric are still as effective as they ever were for maximizing impact. Renowned communications researcher, consultant, and speech coach Max Atkinson presents these findings and more in a groundbreaking and refreshing approach that highlights the secrets of successful communication, and shows how anyone can put these into practice and become an effective speaker or presenter.

"Brueggemann's assault upon this long-standing rhetorical conceit is both erudite and personal; she writes both as a scholar and as a hard-of-hearing woman. In this broadly based study, she presents a profound analysis and understanding of rhetorical tradition's descendent disciplines that continue to limit deaf people, such as audiology and speech/language pathology.

Is This the End? People feel that something is about to happen. This book teaches you not only teaches you what, but how to prepare for it. “Signs of the end times” is that people will run to and fro all over the earth and that knowledge will be greatly increased for example computers, smart phones, IPads and electronics. You may be reading this book in hard cover, paperback, or eBook anywhere in the world. Is this not a fulfillment of this prophecy? God destroyed the world with a flood, but had Noah build an ark. Sadly few people were on it. Don’t you make this mistake. Is there an ark for an escape this time? Yes, read about it in this book. Christians look for the second coming of Christ, referring to the rapture, seven years later when we come back with King Jesus Christ to earth. Moslems look for their coming Messiah Madhi. As I write Moslem countries are toppling the old leaderships and preparing for this new leader. He will take over the world; food shortages worldwide will kill millions and perhaps billions of people. Those who do not worship him and take his mark 666 will be beheaded. A time of hell on earth. The Jews look for their coming Messiah to bring in the thousand year millennium of paradise on earth and He will. Read this book and act upon it today. You can escape all of this if you will repent and accept Christ before the rapture. If the antichrist has already set up his new world order read and act upon it quickly. It will probably cost you your life for now but real soon you will come back to live with King Jesus. You will find out where we all came from. We started in the Garden of Eden which was in Babylon, now Iraq. The first world empire was there and the last led by the antichrist will rule from Babylon I believe. You will read the complete story from beginning to end and then on to a new future with a new heaven and a new earth. Read this and pass it on, time is running out.

This review of cartoons of the life of one of the major politicians of the twentieth century is unique in covering Lloyd George from the first cartoon in May 1894 to his death in March 1945. The context for the cartoons is provided through a summary of his life, the special features of Lloyd George as an 'outsider' and the social economic and political environment. The book proceeds through the major events in his life – the Boer War, the 1909 Budget and struggle with the House of Lords, the Marconi scandal… His role as 'the man who won the War', as a divisive figure in the Liberal Party and then the initiator of proposals to reduce unemployment is also shown. A further chapter focuses on attempts to portray him as a man playing many parts – snake charmer, music hall performer, revolutionary, Charlie Chaplin...
