In Voices of Power Henry Bienen, newly appointed President of Northwestern University, has drawn together a unique collection of speeches and writings from many of the most famous and powerful leaders of the twentieth century, and has grouped them by the various traditions of power. Democratic leaders are represented by Woodrow Wilson, Jawaharlal Nehru, Charles de Gaulle, Sir Winston Churchill, Golda Meir, and Franklin D. Roosevelt. Among the authoritarian and totalitarian leaders are Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler, Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Fidel Castro, and Nikita Khrushchev. The selection is comprehensive in its documentation of various styles and visions of leadership, and illustrates how leaders have seen their roles in history before, during, and after they have assumed power. Voices of Power is an essential reference book of speeches, broadcasts, autobiographical writings, and court testimonies for any reader of politics and history.
