Great Scottish Speeches : Volume 2 Hardback
Edited by David Torrance
Part of the Great Scottish Speeches series
What makes a speech great?In this second volume of Great Scottish Speeches, more than 60 speeches made by Scots or by others in Scotland have been drawn together, not necessarily for their heart-stopping eloquence (although many have that), but as a testament to their enduringhistorical significance.
These speeches each provide a snapshot of the social, cultural or political context in which they were made, a celebration of the power of great oratory across the ages. As you fight for fairness, you will always find in me a friend, a partner and a brother.
