Review Text

With a forceful introduction, here are masterpieces of oratory, moved to print, and set out - in date order, form Churchill's maiden speech in the Commons in 1901 to his last words there 54 yeras later - with brief prefatory notes to keep them in their historic contexts. A real feast for lovers of good English or of great occasions. (Kirkus UK)show more
