Terry Golway's WORDS THAT RING THROUGH TIME in Booklist

Coming this Fall is Words That Ring Through Time: The Fifty Most Important Speeches in History and How They Changed Our World. Edited by historian and author Terry Golway, this superb new collection is reviewed in the August 1 issue of Booklist: "Selected and introduced by historian Golway, the historically significant speeches in this anthology either crystallized a philosophy or addressed war, revolution, or national liberation. Prefacing them with the immediate contexts of their delivery, Golway permits the words to speak for themselves, without much analysis of their rhetorical arrangement. Readers are immediately immersed. . . Also includes a Barack Obama speech, possibly the first collection to confer consequential significance to his oratory."
