The speeches in this book changed history. Sometimes they did so straightforwardly, for instance by setting in train a change of mind among the audience, as Wilberforce began to do over the slave trade. But sometimes it was by changing the way posterity has viewed a decision already taken, as Socrates did at his trial, even though he was condemned to death. Every speech has been chosen on its merits. Such merits are of two kinds, however. A speech may be, and usually is, a highly readable essay in the art of immediate persuasion. But it is sometimes more the trigger by which a world historical personage has catapulted mankind into action afterwards. As such, it may have had a more long-term historical effect than an immediate impact. For that reason, the accompanying remarks explaining the context of every speech and giving an account of the speaker are as vital as the speech itself.

The greatest speeches have changed world history. To compile an anthology of them is therefore to sketch a history of the world. From the origins of western oratory in classical Greece (Pericles, Demosthenes), via its exponents in the great age of British Parliamentary debate and American Congressional and Presidential campaigning, through its perverting by the twentieth- century's worst dictators and demagogues, to its exuberant modern practitioners in black America (Martin Luther King, Jesse Jackson) or South Africa (Nelson Mandela), this book is a treasury of golden words launched from silver tongues. Each speech is presented with a portrait of the speaker plus a short biography and an account of the context in which the speech was delivered, including the historical consequences.

What makes a great speech 'great'? The Art of Great Speeches uses insights from classical thinkers to reveal how great orators such as Barack Obama, Martin Luther King, the Kennedys, Al Gore and Hitler have persuaded their audiences so convincingly. Featuring excerpts of 70 of the world's greatest speeches in history and drama, this fascinating book breaks down the key elements of classical and modern oratory to reveal the rhetorical techniques that make them so memorable. It shows how master speechwriters connect with their audiences, seize a moment, project character, use facts convincingly and destroy their opponents' arguments as they try to force the hand of history or create memorable drama. Part history, part defence of oratory, part call for political inspiration, part professional handbook, The Art of Great Speeches does what no other book does - it explains why these speeches are great.

Taken together, Chinua Achebe's five novels--Things Fall Apart (1958), No Longer at Ease (1960), A Man of the People (1966), Arrow of God (1967), and Anthills of the Savannah (1988)--encompass the entire social, historical, and political experiences of Nigeria, from precolonial times to the close of the 20th century. Central to these experiences is the clash of Igbo culture with the ways of the West. This book analyzes Achebe's use of oratory and rhetorical devices to educate his readers about the African colonial encounter and its aftermath and to delineate his characters. By examining the relationship of rhetoric and literature in Achebe's works, this volume sheds light on his use of the novel genre to persuade.
