Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, William Safire presents an anthology of the world's greatest speeches throughout the ages. This book features more than 200 addresses by figures from Demosthenes to Salman Rushdie that have moved millions and shaped history. "Lend Me Your Ears" begins with an introduction that constitutes a crash course in the art of the orator, with an insider's tricks of the trade.
