9780857501462: Churchill: The Power of Words

Winston Churchill knew the power of words. In public speeches and published books, in newspaper and magazine articles, he expressed his feelings and laid out his vision for the future. His wartime writings and speeches have fascinated generation after generation with their powerful narrative style and thoughtful reflection.

This book contains one hundred extracts from his books, articles and speeches. They range from his memories of his schooldays, to his contributions to the debates on social policy and on war, his contributions in both world wars to the events and discourse, and his efforts after 1945 to see the world a better place.

Martin Gilbert, Churchill's official biographer, has chosen passages that express to him the essence of Churchill's thoughts, and which describe—in his own inimitable words—the main adventures of his life, and the main crises of his career with Gilbert’s own introduction and interlinking text. They give, from first to last, an insight into his life and thought, how it evolved, and how he made his mark on the British and world stage.

About the Author:

Review:

Washington Times, 7/31/12“What makes this particular volume stand out is the expert’s encyclopedic knowledge about the subject—and his keen eye in choosing the most exceptional works of a man who wrote and spoke so many of them. Mr. Gilbert has long been Churchill’s greatest champion, but he wisely takes a secondary role to simply provide brief thoughts on each excerpt’s historical significance. In doing so, Churchill’s astonishing mastery of the English language can thereby do all the talking...a superb volume of Churchill’s writings and speeches.”

Veterans Reporter, 9/1/12“[A] masterful book and a history worth buying and reading and paying attention to.”

Buffalo News, 9/30/12“Churchill’s speeches...sing in a way English language statesmen and politicians have tried unsuccessfully to match ever since. This volume has them all, and in chronological order, often with brief lead-ins to supply context, so it can be read as a history of the British Empire during the first have of the 20th century, or used as an anthology of Churchillian quotations...Kudos to Sir Gilbert for the service he has performed in packing the best of Churchill into one comprehensible volume.”

Sacramento Book Review, October 2012“Will give the reader great insight into the history of Britain during the time of Churchill and Churchill’s own development into the leader during their ‘finest hour.’ Highly recommended especially in this age of politics over character.”

Charleston Post & Courier, 11/11/12“With 200 extracts well chosen by historian and Churchill biographer Martin Gilbert, this book isn’t just informative and entertaining. It’s inspiring.”

Named a San Francisco Book Review Staff Pick for “Best Books of 2012”

Descrizione libro Transworld Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Winston Churchill understood and wielded the power of words throughout his six decades in the public eye.
