This is the story of Eleanor Roosevelt's proudest achievement and of the remarkable group of men and women from around the world who share in its realisation. Widely celebrated as a role model for women, Eleanor Roosevelt had no diplomatic experience when she was asked by President Truman to help create the world's first international bill of rights, and the true founding document of the modern rights movement. At first uncertain of her abilities, still reeling form the death of FDR, she quickly came into her own. Based on untapped archives and diaries, and letters to which the author was given exclusive access, A WORLD MADE NEW is the dramatic and inspiring story of this pivotal moment in Eleanor Roosevelt's life - and in world history.
