Wells’s The Rights of Man, which argued for universal human rights as ‘the basis of a new and happier way of life,’ was written collaboratively by a committee chaired by Lord Chancellor John Sankey, and was published as a ‘Penguin Special’ in 1940. The Library holds translations of the document into many European, African and Asian languages.
