Stephen Schlesinger's Act of Creation

cover of Stephen Schlesinger’s Act of CreationAs a former Model UN Nerd, I understand if folks are skeptical when I say that ACT OF CREATION is a fascinating read, but there it is. Schlesinger's history starts with the death of President Roosevelt in April of 1945 and takes us from there through the San Francisco conference that founded the United Nations. He tells the story of the conference--its different actors, conflicts, and intrigues in an open, approachable style that made me feel like I was listening to someone who'd been there.
