From calls to arms to demands for peace, and from cries of freedom to words of inspiration, this stirring anthology captures the voices of prophets and politicians, rebels and tyrants, soldiers and statesman, placing them in historical context. With over a million copies already sold, this revised and updated edition includes speeches that have shaped the modern world: from Aung San Suu Kyi on freedom to Al Gore on the environment and from Malala Yousafzai on the education of women to Pope Francis on peace. A biography of each speechmaker reveals how they came to stand at the crossroads of history, and each speech is accompanied by an introduction explaining its historical context and how it influenced the momentous events of the day - as well as those that followed. New speeches include Malala Yousafzais speech to the UN Youth Assembly on access to education (2013), Vladimir Putins address regarding the annexation of Crimea (2014), Xi Jinpings Communist Party General Secretarys speech in Beijing (2012), Pope Franciss First Easter Urbi et Orbi Message (2013) and Al Gores address to the UN Bali Climate Change Conference (2007).
