Summary
"Elizabeth Borgwardt describes how a cadre of World War II American planners inaugurated the ideas and institutions that underlie our modern international human rights regime." "Borgwardt finds the key in the 1941 Atlantic Charter and its Anglo-American vision of "war and peace aims." In attempting to globalize what U.S. planners heralded as domestic New Deal ideas about security, the ideology of the Atlantic Charter - buttressed by FDR's "Four Freedoms" and the legacies of World War I - redefined human rights and America's vision for the world." "By analyzing the interaction of ideas, individuals, and institutions that transformed American foreign policy - and Americans' view of themselves - Borgwardt illuminates the broader history of modern human rights, trade and the global economy, collective security, and international law. This book captures a lost vision of the American role in the world."--BOOK JACKET
