Hillary Clinton has a long way to go to catch up to the prolific Eleanor Roosevelt, as this collection of 126 of the former first lady's articles and speeches attests. Essays on human rights and democratic responsibilities, originally published in titles such as the New York Times, Look, and Ladies' Home Journal, demonstrate the development of her style from a self-effacing political journalist to a self-assured activist. Subjects include civil rights, education, women, the United Nations, and human rights. Includes b&w photos, and a bibliographic essay. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
