It is a collection of inspirational speeches that illicit change from around the world. For the most part, this collection of short stories gave an overall mediocre impression. 50 Speeches That Made the Modern World: Famous Speeches from Women's Rights to Human Rights is a mediocre collection, albeit rather inspirational collection of speeches given by fifty different orators from around the world, over a time of century, and for a range of subject matter. Listed in chronological order from Emmeline Pankhurst (1908) to Theresa May (2016), these fifty speeches are collected from royalty, politician, movement leaders, scientists, and other prominent figures on subject matters as propaganda speeches, through challenging the status quo on issues of race, gender and politics to public addresses to the masses on the issues of AIDS and terrorism, through apologies, complaints, warmongering, scaremongering, and passionate pleas – it is a hodgepodge collection of inspirational, albeit mediocre speeches. Like most anthologies there are weaker contributions and 50 Speeches That Made the Modern World: Famous Speeches from Women's Rights to Human Rights is not an exception. While there are speeches better written over others – they are all rather inspirational. However, this collection is not meant to be binge-read (like I did), but rather taken in small doses as it could get rather dull rather quickly. Furthermore, speeches are meant to be heard as tone and inflection could change the impact of the written world. However, it was rather beneficial that before each speech there was an introduction explaining its setting, importance and impact as well as marginal notes filling in any background information to give context of the speech. All in all, 50 Speeches That Made the Modern World: Famous Speeches from Women's Rights to Human Rights is a mediocre, albeit inspirational speeches that help to change the course of world history.
