Speeches and Articles 2013 - 2017 His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales

Author: David Cadman Format: Hardback Release Date: 15/08/2019

In 2014, Volumes One and Two of the speeches and articles of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales were archived and published by the University of Wales Press. This third volume of the speeches and articles of The Prince of Wales includes a thematic expansion to the section on `Climate Change and Sustainability', accommodating a number of texts that address the interconnected relationship between economic, social and environmental sustainability. As The Prince of Wales marks his seventieth birthday, we note a significant achievement. Over the years, in broader terms, his words and actions have received little publicity, but matters on which The Prince has voiced concern have subsequently risen on the agenda for a great many other thoughtful and well-informed observers. It is hoped that among the merits of this archive is its record of The Prince's contribution, which will allow a fair and balanced assessment of his singularly remarkable contribution.

Demosthenes: Selected Political Speeches

Demosthenes: Selected Political Speeches

Author: Judson (Allegheny College, Pennsylvania) Herrman Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/07/2019

Demosthenes, as an emerging political leader in fourth-century Athens, delivered a series of fiery speeches to the citizens in the democratic Assembly, attacking the Macedonian king Philip II as an aggressive imperialist bent on destroying the city's independence. This volume presents the Greek text of five of these speeches with full introduction and detailed commentary. They show how the foremost politician of the day argued his case before the people who made policy decisions in the Assembly, and how he eventually persuaded them to support his doomed militaristic position in preference to the more pragmatic stance of accommodation advocated by his political opponents. These speeches are unique sources for the ideology and political history of this crucial period, and the best specimens of persuasive rhetoric in action from democratic Athens. This edition takes account of recent studies of fourth-century Athens and showcases Demosthenes as a master of Greek prose style.
