Overview
This bestselling collection of American oratory is the most comprehensive anthology of its kind: a record of twentieth-century America captured in the words that inspired and infuriated, electrified and galvanized its people. Decade by decade, generation to generation, history unfolds in the famous and infamous expressions of Americans from all walks of life: poets and politicians, artists and astronauts, soldiers and sports legends, preachers and pacifists, humorists and hell-raisers. In Our Own Words bears witness to the forces that swept our nation -- two World Wars, Prohibition, the Depression, the Cold War, the Civil Rights era, Vietnam, the Reagan era, and beyond -- and features the voices of Theodore Roosevelt Booker T. Washington Mark Twain Emma Goldman Woodrow Wilson Marcus Garvey Oliver Wendell Holmes George S. Patton Pearl Buck Orson Welles Jackie Robinson Joseph McCarthy Rachel Carson Vince Lombardi Barry Goldwater John F. Kennedy J. Edgar Hoover Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Malcolm X Richard M. Nixon Frank Zappa Elie Wiesel Charlton Heston Ryan White Duke Ellington Billy Graham Barbara Jordan Bill Clinton Cesar Chavez Helen Keller ...and dozens of others who tell the story of their age from their podiums and soapboxes, courtrooms and convention halls.
