About this product
- DescriptionSelected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Book for 1999 Born of a shared revulsion against the horrors of the Holocaust, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has become the single most important statement of international ethics. It was inspired by and reflects the full scope of President Franklin Roosevelt's famous four freedoms: the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want, and the freedom from fear. Written by a UN commission led by Elear Roosevelt and adopted in 1948, the Declaration has become the moral backbone of more than two hundred human rights instruments that are w a part of our world. The result of a truly international negotiating process, the document has been a source of hope and inspiration to thousands of groups and millions of oppressed individuals.
