In eleven chapters - Ancient History; Love; War & Revoloution; Religion; Science and Medicine; Patriotism; Philosophy; Humanity/Liberty/Tyranny; Sport; Politics & International Affairs; and Miscellaneous, 501 Must-Know Speeches contains a selection of speeches extracts from interviews, off-the-cuff remarks, retorts, exchanges and announcements from across the world, as well as one or two from less obvious sources, adn from a wealth of political opinions and ideologies, belief systems, scientific standpoints and moral outlooks. Each is accompanied by a short background explanation to put it into context with details of when and where it was given, together with a snippet of information about the speaker. Some contain ideas that are easy for all to agree with, other nos so easy, and some will be repellent to almost everyone, but are included for completnes. Hopefully, all will provoke thought.
