Full description for Lend Me Your Ears
Covering speeches from Demosthenes to George W. Bush, this third edition has a new preface on what makes a speech "great". It includes the words of Oliver Cromwell to the "Rump Parliament", Tony Blair exhorting his party to fight terrorism and Alistair Cooke sending a Christmas "Letter from America". A new section incorporates speeches that were never delivered: what Kennedy was to say in Dallas and what Safire wrote for Nixon if the first moon landing met with disaster.
