`What a wonderful, eclectic daily diet of historical speech! Each entry - one for each day of the year - transports us back to hear the voices of the past, and gives us an empathic, learned, and fascinating insight into the thoughts and feelings of the people of history.' - Suzannah Lipscomb
MAKE EVERY DAY HISTORIC WITH THIS VIVID, DAY-BY-DAY PERSPECTIVE ON 2,500 YEARS OF HUMAN HISTORY.
Following the success of the bestselling Histories of Nations, Peter Furtado brings us 366 telling quotations that offer a window on the past, tying every day in the year to a momentous occasion and bringing it to life with eyewitness accounts and a chronicler's flair. Here are Joan of Arc and Julius Caesar, Galileo and Gandhi, JFK and MLK in their element: battles and treaties, revolutions and discoveries, the joyful ad the grief-stricken. Every day brings a new voice and fresh revelations, while Peter Furtado expertly places events in context to make this both an addictive anthology and a dazzling panorama of world history.
