My Day by Eleanor Roosevelt
Book DescriptionRecently named "Woman of the Century" in a survey conducted by the National Women's Hall of Fame, Eleanor Roosevelt wrote her hugely popular syndicated column "My Day" for over a quarter of that century, from 1936 to 1962. This collection brings together for the first time in a single volume the most memorable of those columns, written with singular wit, elegance, compassion, and insight--everything from her personal perspectives on the New Deal and World War II to the painstaking diplomacy required of her as chair of the United Nations Committee on Human Rights after the war to the joys of gardening at her beloved Hyde Park home. To quote Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., "What a remarkable woman she was! These sprightly and touching selections from Eleanor Roosevelt's famous column evoke an extraordinary personality."

As relevant and influential now as it was when first published in 1963, this book is the author's manifesto and her final effort to move America toward the community she hoped it would become. It traces the author's country's struggle to embrace democracy and presents her declaration against fear, timidity, complacency, and national arrogance.
