あらすじ・解説

A celebration of the great speeches of world history and cultural life. A Vintage original.

In this exuberant collection, acclaimed historian Simon Sebag Montefiore takes us on a journey from ancient times to the 21st century. Some speeches are heroic and inspiring; some diabolical and atrocious. Some are exquisite and poignant; others cruel and chilling. The speakers themselves vary from empresses and conquerors to rock stars, novelists and sportsmen, dreamers and killers, from Churchill and Elizabeth I to Stalin and Genghis Khan, and from Michelle Obama and Cleopatra to Ronald Reagan, Nehru, and Muhammad Ali.

All human drama is here: from the carnage of battlefields to the theater of courtrooms, from table talk to audiences of millions, from desperate last stands to orations of triumph, from noble calls for liberation to genocidal rants, from foolish delusions and strange confessions to defiant resistance and heartbreaking farewells. Voices of History spans centuries, continents, and cultures. In the accessible and gripping style of a master storyteller, Montefiore shows why these 70 speeches are essential listening and how they enlighten our past, enrich our present, and inspire - as well as hold warnings for - our future.

Powerful and Impassioned

This collection of speeches were a wonderful listen. They were powerful, impassioned, hopeful, heartfelt and diabolical. Some, spoken in ancient times, are relevant today. A must listen for everyone.

The cast of narrators were superb.
