The dream and politics presents a selection of public speeches by the greatest Democratic leaders, from Franklin Delano Roosevelt up to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Presidents, Presidential candidates, outstanding figures of American history that through the words declaimed in public, and hence in the heat of the fray and the debate, have succeeded in grasping and proposing new aspirations and visions of the nation and the world. The introductory essays by the editors analyse the themes and the style of political communication of the protagonists of the long dream of American liberals. Each speech is completed with notes and a short introduction that helps to place it in its historic context.
