The Evil Empire speech without the "evil empire"
I bought this in order to hear Ronald Reagan's "evil empire" speech. However, in spite of the fact that "evil empire" is quoted on the back of the DVD's cover, one never actually gets to hear Reagan utter the phrase that shook the Soviet apparat. Instead, his speech to the National Association of Evangelicals is inexplicably cut off after he refers to the Soviet Union as "the focus of evil in the modern world" - some three paragraphs BEFORE one would have heard him implore his audience not to ignore "the facts of history and the aggressive impulses of an evil empire". Talk about "Hamlet" without the Prince. Irritating, to say the least . . .
The Speeches Collection -- John F. Kennedy
I work in the political field. Presidential history is one of my specialties. I am a former history teacher, also, who collects political memorabilia and went to high school and college (Florida State University) in the Kennedy-Johnson era. It was a wonderful era and this is a top-notch tape, if you like JFK. Ignore the comments about poor production. This is sometime after Kennedy, production techniques have improved considerably. I am selective about what I purchase and believe me, there is nothing about this tape, in my considered and historically-based opinion, that should make the JFK afficionado have second thoughts about buying it!
Words that both defined and turned the wheels of history
The Speeches Collection: Volume 1 is an impressive and very highly recommended two-disc, 4 hour DVD presentation of great speeches by John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Gerald Ford, and Ronald Regan. A profound amalgamation of words that both defined and turned the wheels of history, The Speeches Collection is would make a welcome and invaluable addition to school and community library Video/DVD collections.
