The author introduces the reader to the people of many faiths who, in the aftermath of the second world war and despite widespread cynicism, animosity and even ridicule, forged one of the world's most important documents, the UN's Universal Declaration of Human rights. The Declaration has become the touchstone in international law defining the legitimate administration of justice. This volume recounts the ""disproportionate influence of a few committed, persevering and highly effective religious individuals, along with the supporting groups to which they belonged, on efforts during the 1940s to include and elaborate human rights as part of the UN system that was then being created"". In this new country, religion and politics are seen by many as a volatile, if not deadly, mixture. The book recalls a time when that was not so, when together political and religious leader gave rise to a new ideal: universal human rights.
