Book Description
This compelling book tells the inspirational stories of men and women across the globe who fought for peace, freedom, equality, and human rights throughout the twentieth century. These courageous individuals include leading figures such as Mahatma Gandhi, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Vaclav havel, and Mikhail Gorbachev, as well as Nobel Prize winners Aung San Suu Kyi, Andrei Sakharov, and Muhammad Yunus. Readers will be reminded why Pope Joh XXIII, long overshadowed by the charismatic John Paul II, was the greatest pope of contemporary times. a new generation will learn that Margaret Sanger was responsible for the single most important advance toward the liberation of women worldwide. They will also come to know some of the valiant women who fought at great personal risk for equal rights in muslim communities. Cohen highlights the vital roles of BramFischer, Helen Suzman, and Donald Woods in fighting apartheid in South Africa and of Jack Greenberg in the struggle against Jim Crow in America. He traces Liu Binyan`s efforts to win freedom of the press and to end the abuse of power by the Chinese Communist Party. Finally, he recounts the remarkable stories of some of the thousands of men and women of many nationalities and walks of life who rescued Jews during the Hlocaust. Together, these biographies paint an unforgettable portrait of the famous and unsung people who stepped forward with teh moral vision to intervene, often at a great personal cost, to alleviate human misery.
