Speeches That Changed Our Times

From 1945 to the Present

by Carlo Batà
Hardcover >
This collection of 38 speeches makes it possible for the reader to grasp a deeper understanding of the period, to appreciate the prophetic words, and to emulate the example of those who spoke them.
The great speeches from post–World War II to the present have interpreted the sentiments of a world in continuous evolution. This book contains moving speeches that have great emotional impact, words that have changed the course of history such as Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream,” Winston Churchill’s “Iron Curtain,” Pope John XXIII’s “Caress,” and Barack Obama’s “A New Beginning.” It has been updated to include Ursula von der Leyen’s State of the Union Address to the European Union about the conflict in Ukraine. Speeches That Changed Our Times features the words of not only statespeople, but also scientists, literary figures, entrepreneurs, and courageous girls like Malala Yousafzai, who asks that new generations be guaranteed the right to education.

Carlo Batà is an author, editor, and translator who collaborates with magazines and newspapers. For White Star, he was the co-author, with Gianni Morelli, of the volume 1968: A Revolutionary Year in Photographs.
