This is an outstanding collection of 51 of the most important public speeches in human history, beginning with Moses and ending with Barak Obama. Obviously, it would be possible--likely, even--to disagree with the editor's choice of any particular speech as one of THE most important in history; however, there's no denying that every one of these speeches is important.

The editor includes a brief introduction to each speech that places it into its historical context and explains why it was important. These are very well done, and they add a lot to the flow of the book.

This is a well-done collection, one that will reward those with an interest in history or public speaking. There's a lot to think about here.

One could debate endlessly about which 50-odd speeches are the most significant, but this collection is a good place to start.
