More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This second collection of syndicated columns, which kept Eleanor Roosevelt in the public eye after FDR's death and her departure from the White House, covers an eventful period of her life. During the terms of Presidents Truman and Eisenhower, she was a notable activist, particularly in 1945 after her appointment as the only U.S. woman delegate to the first meeting of the United Nations General Assembly in London. Her reflections on that experience and on human rights issues are couched in terms of responsible citizenship and individual conscience. The columns, here edited by freelancer Emblidge, cover a wide range of public issues and personal concerns, from her first encounter with a homeless person to becoming a working widow--all presented in a voice that resonated for countless Americans. Photos not seen by PW. (Aug.)
Library Journal
This sampling of Eleanor Roosevelt's ``My Day'' columns, which she wrote for nearly 30 years, takes up where volume 1 left off in 1945 following the death of President Roosevelt. During this time Roosevelt served as the first U.S. woman delegate to the United Nations and as chair of the Committee on Human Rights. These short pieces reflect her high moral values and broad interests, from the mundane and personal to the sweeping and reformist. As LJ' s reviewer said of volume 1, ``for those knowing her only as a historical figure the columns offer a sense of the way Roosevelt touched contemporaries'' ( LJ 3/15/89). With background annotations by editor Emblidge, this is recommended for public libraries.-- Francine Fialkoff, ``Library Journal''
School Library Journal
YA-- Syndicated daily newspaper articles covering aspects of the United States' political and cultural issues as seen by Eleanor Roosevelt between 1945-1952. The writings move readers through national issues of the post-war years, mentioning those who participated in and influenced such issues as the status of women, national health legislation, the beginning of the United Nations, etc. Each column is written in positive, simple language. An essential biography that brings Roosevelt's outspoken, vibrant personality to life. --Linda Vretos, West Springfield High School, VA
