9780679463108 - A World Made New Eleanor Roosevelt and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by Mary Ann Glendon

ISBN 10: 0679463100

Hardcover; New York: Random House, February 20, 2001;

A World Made New tells the dramatic story of the struggle to build, out of the trauma and wreckage of World War II, a document that would ensure it would never happen again. There was an almost religious intensity to the project, championed by Eleanor Roosevelt under the aegis of the newly formed United nations and brought into being by an extraordinary group of men and women who knew, like the framers of the Declaration of Independence, that they were making history. They worked against the clock, the brief window between the end of World War II and the deep freeze of the cold war, to forget the founding document of the modern rights movement.A distinguished professor of international law, Mary Ann Glendon was given exclusive access to personal diaries and unpublished memoirs of key participants. An outstanding work of narrative history, A World Made New is the first book devoted to this crucial moment in Eleanor Roosevelt's life and in world history.

New York, NY: Random House, 2001. First edition. First edition [stated[. Hardcover. Very good/very good. Sewn binding. Cloth over boards. xxi, [1], 368 p. Illustrations. Index. From Wikipedia: "The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a declaration adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1948 at the Palais de Chaillot, Paris. The Declaration arose directly from the experience of the Second World War and represents the first global expression of rights to which all human beings are inherently entitled. The full text is published by the United Nations on its website. The Declaration consists of thirty articles which have been elaborated in subsequent international treaties, regional human rights instruments, national constitutions, and other laws. In 1976, after the Covenants had been ratified by a sufficient number of individual nations, the Bill took on the force of international law."
