The Triumph of LibertyStreaming Audiobook - 2005
Of humankind's great achievements over the past 2,000 years, one towers above all the rest: the arduous, painstaking process of wresting liberty from tyranny's iron fist. The Triumph of Liberty chronicles this inspiring story through sixty-five biographical portraits. From the millions of men and women whose struggles and successes have made freedom possible, Jim Powell has chosen a few talented, courageous individuals whose lives illustrate the triumphing will of the human spirit. Some of these people, like Martin Luther King Jr., remain famous; others, like John Lilburne, who spent most of his adult life in prison battling England's infamous Star Chamber, are almost unknown. Some of Powell's choices?Ludwig van Beethoven, Louis L'Amour?may be surprising. Others still?like Milton Friedman or Margaret Thatcher?are controversial. Woven together, their moving life stories tell a brilliant epic saga of the triumph of liberty as a whole.
