The prominent role played by Mrs. Roosevelt in the creation of the United Nations' (U.N.) human rights apparatus is described by William vanden Heuvel in the Fall issue of The InterDependent (Vol. 6 No. 3).' After quoting Henry Kissinger as styling her "one of the great human beings of our time," vanden Heuvel calls her "tough and resolute" as well as "fearless in speaking truth to power."
