    'Great Australian Speeches brings together a diverse and often moving collection of over 50 speeches ranging from colonial times to the present day. Some have resonated with a power enough to shape the nation; others encapsulate the best - and worst of the Australian character. This selection proves that stirring oratory is not simply the preserve of politicians and military figures. Some of the people feautured in this book include; Governor Arthur Phillip, Peter Lalor, Robert O'Hara Burke, Ned kelly, Sir Henry Parkes, Alfred Deakin, Miles Franklin, Manning Clark, Malcolm Frazer, Gough Witlam, Paul Keating, Geoffrey Blainey, Mick Dodson and Blue Bob.'
