A world made new : Eleanor Roosevelt and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by Mary Ann Glendon ( Book )
23 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 1,490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the story of Eleanor Roosevelt's proudest achievement, one that both she and generations of historians came to see as her greatest contribution to world history." "One of FDR's most cherished dreams as the war drew to a close was that all of the nations dragged into this conflagration would come together to form an international organization whose purpose would be to ensure that such a war would never happen again. The president died a few months before the opening of the United Nations in London, and, to the great chagrin of the American delegation, Eleanor Roosevelt went in his place. She performed so well that she was asked to head one of the UN's most sensitive commissions. Her assignment was to hammer out the world's first international bill of rights, a document that would enshrine Roosevelt's four freedoms and define the rights that every man and woman in every country around the world should enjoy. That document, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, was the founding document of the modern rights movement."--Jacket

Product description-- Political speech in the United States is undergoing a crisis. Glendon's acclaimed book traces the evolution of the strident language of rights in America and shows how it has captured the nation's devotion to individualism and liberty, but omitted the American traditions of hospitality and care for the community

The forum and the tower : how scholars and politicians have imagined the world, from Plato to Eleanor Roosevelt by Mary Ann Glendon ( Book )
9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In The Forum and the Tower, Glendon examines thinkers who have collaborated with leaders, from ancient Syracuse to the modern White House, in a series of brisk portraits that explore the meeting of theory and reality. Glendon discusses a roster of great names, from Edmund Burke to Alexis de Tocqueville, Machiavelli to Rousseau, John Locke to Max Weber, down to Charles Malik, who helped Eleanor Roosevelt draft the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights. With each, she explores the eternal questions they faced, including: Is politics such a dirty business that I shouldn't get involved? Will I betray my principles by pursuing public office? Can I make a difference, or will my efforts be wasted? Even the most politically successful intellectuals, she notes, did not all end happily. The brilliant Marcus Tullius Cicero, for example, reached the height of power in the late Roman Republic, then fell victim to intrigue, assassinated at Mark Antony's order. Yet others had a lasting impact. The legal scholar Tribonian helped Byzantine Emperor Justinian I craft the Corpus Juris Civilis, which became a bedrock of Western law. Portalis and Napoleon emulated them, creating the civil code that the French emperor regarded as his greatest legacy"--Provided by publisher

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From Dan Quayle to Bill Clinton, Americans are increasingly alarmed by the crisis of values in our society. What are the roots of the crisis? What can be done to solve it? Putting aside the sterile, old categories of liberal versus conservative, this book forcefully argues for a new approach to social problems - an approach based on rediscovering civic virtue and strengthening the institutions of civil society. Bringing together prominent contributors from across the human sciences and across the political spectrum, Seedbeds of Virtue is a seminal contribution to the emerging debate on rebuilding civil society

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Boston's Cardinal, a portrait of one of the most respected and influential leaders of the Catholic Church, provides a unique view of the Church in the modern world. Ever since the 1960s, when he spoke out courageously for racial justice as a young priest in Mississippi, Bernard Law has witnessed and participated in many of the struggles and events that have shaped American and Church history. An unusual childhood spent mainly in Latin America and the Caribbean prepared him for a vocation that has been marked from the beginning by outreach across racial, religious, and national boundaries."--BOOK JACKET
