But what exactly is liberty? It is a term open to a broad range of opinion, and questions about freedom arise daily in the news and in everyday life. Perhaps uniquely among the nations of the world, the United States traces its origins to groups and individuals who specifically wanted to create something new. Webber’s insightful Give Me Liberty looks at these great speeches and provides the historical context, focusing attention on particular individuals who summed up the issues of their own day in words that have never been forgotten. Webber gleans lessons from the past centuries that will allow us to continue to strive for the ideals of liberty in the twenty-first century.
Sure to become a classic of American oratorical history, Give Me Liberty reveals the enduring power of America’s quest for a freer and more just society and the context of the speeches and speakers—from Daniel Webster and Patrick Henry to MartinLuther King Jr. and Ronald Reagan—that gave voice to the struggle.
