The book "Speeches that changed the world" brings together more than 50 public speeches of various historical figures and politicians - from the biblical prophet Moses to President George Bush. The compiler of this edition, British historian and writer Simon Sebag-Montefiore, singles out the key moments in the history of mankind and reveals their significance through the thoughts of leaders - people who determined the vector of further development by word and deed. Each speech is accompanied by an essay highlighting the historical background against which it was delivered and a biographical note on the speaker. Spectacular black-and-white illustrations are close to documentaries in terms of their impact. The book will be useful not only for those interested in world history and rhetoric, but also for managers who are faced with the task of inspiring and leading.
