Speeches in World History is an impressive compilation of 200 of the world's greatest speeches from all major civilizations and throughout history - arranged in chronological order. Each section of this comprehensive collection, roughly corresponding to the eras used in the national world history standards, begins with an introduction that outlines key events that occurred during this time period. The documents come with an introduction that places each speech in historical context - explaining why it was significant and what happened as a result - and provides key information on the orator. This title features, Socrates: ""The Trial"" (399 BCE, Athens); Boudicca: ""A Woman's Resolve"" (61 CE, Britain); Muhammad: ""The Farewell Sermon: (632, Arabia)Musang: ""Preaching the Dharma"" (c. 728-762, Korea); William the Conqueror: ""Before the Battle of Hastings"" (1066, England); Pope Urban II: ""Calling for a Crusade to the Holy Land"" (1095, France); Nichiren: ""My Life Is the Lotus Sutra"" (1271, Japan); Moctezuma: ""Welcoming Hernan Cortes to Mexico"" (1519, Mexico); Martin Luther: ""I Stand Here and Can Say No More"" (1521, Germany); Queen Elizabeth I: ""The Heart and Stomach of a King"" (1588, England); Galileo Galilei: ""Abjuration before the Roman Inquisition"" (1633, Italy); Charles I: ""From the Scaffold"" (1649, Great Britain); Benjamin Franklin: ""To the Constitutional Convention"" (1787, United States); and, George Washington: ""Observe Good Faith and Justice to All Nations"" (1796, United States).
