Abstract

Case study in book that "focuses on Eleanor Roosevelt’s multifaceted agenda for the world. It highlights her advocacy of human rights, multilateral diplomacy, and
transnationalism, and it emphasizes her challenge to gendered norms and racial
relations. The essays of this collection describe Eleanor Roosevelt as a public
intellectual, a politician, a public diplomat, and an activist. She went through two
world wars, the harshness of the Great Depression, and the emergence of nuclear
confrontation, and she deciphered such crises as the product of misleading
nationalism and egoism. Against them, she offered her commitment to people’s
education as an example of civic engagement, which she considered necessary
for the functioning of any democratic order." (Palgrave MacMillan)
