Great speeches have formed milestones in modern history, inspiring and engaging generations on important issues including war, women's rights, climate change and civil rights, and helping to shape the world we live in. Featuring 17 influential speeches from the past 150 years, this book explores the events leading up to each speech, how the spoken word was used to great effect, and the impact it had on the world, presented in graphic novel style to put the reader at the heart of the action.
