Abraham Lincoln by George S McGovern( Book )
11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,444 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: America's greatest president, who rose to power in the country's greatest hour of need and whose vision saw the United States through the Civil War. Abraham Lincoln towers above the others who have held the office of president-the icon of greatness, the pillar of strength whose words bound up the nation's wounds. His presidency is the hinge on which American history pivots, the time when the young republic collapsed of its own contradictions and a new birth of freedom, sanctified by blood, created the United States we know today. His story has been told many times, but never by a man who himself sought the office of president and contemplated the awesome responsibilities that come with it. George S. McGovern-a Midwesterner, former U.S. senator, presidential candidate, veteran, and historian by training-offers his unique insight into our sixteenth president. He shows how Lincoln sometimes went astray, particularly in his restrictions on civil liberties, but also how he adjusted his sights and transformed the Civil War from a political dispute to a moral crusade. McGovern's account reminds us why we hold Lincoln in such esteem and why he remains the standard by which all of his successors are measured

"The authors present a detailed blueprint for U.S. withdrawal from Iraq that is bound to stir a national debate. Former senator George McGovern and William R. Polk, a leading authority on the Middle East, offer a detailed plan for a speedy troop withdrawal from Iraq. During the phased withdrawal, to begin on December 31, 2006, and to be completed by June 30, 2007, they recommend that the Iraq government engage the temporary services of an international stabilization force to police the country. Other elements in the withdrawal plan include an independent accounting of American expenditures of Iraqi funds, reparations to Iraqi civilians for lives lost and property destroyed, immediate release of all prisoners of war, the closing of American detention centers, and offering to void all contracts for petroleum exploration, development, and marketing made during the American occupation."--Source other than the Library of Congress

One bright shining moment : the forgotten summer of George McGovern ( visu )
4 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 478 libraries worldwide
This documentary retraces George McGovern's bold presidential campaign of 1972 - a grassroots campaign that fought for peace and justice, and positioned ideas and people first. However, what is remembered today as being the ultimate political defeat of the American Century may also have been its high watermark. The film poses this central question: what does the crushing electoral defeat of a man so well respected for his decency and intellect say about the electoral process, the American government, and more importantly, what does it say about the forces at work on the American people---then and now?
What it means to be a Democrat by George S McGovern( Book )
6 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 467 libraries worldwide
A call to arms by the former presidential candidate that combines personal anecdotes and cultural critiques to remind liberals of their ideological compass and restore confidence. The author has been a leading figure of the Democratic Party for more than fifty years. From this true liberal comes a thoughtful examination of what being a Democrat really means. He admonishes current Democratic politicians for losing sight of their ideals as they subscribe to an increasingly centrist policy agenda. Applying his wide ranging knowledge and expertise on issues ranging from military spending to same sex marriage to educational reform, he stresses the importance of creating policies we can be proud of. Finally, with 2012 looming, this book offers a vision of the party's future in which ideological coherence and courage rule

Writing for congregations and individuals of faith, McGovern, Dole, and Messer appeal to the religious ethical foundations for action against hunger.

Social security and the golden age : an essay on the new American demographic by George S McGovern( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 184 libraries worldwide
"In this timely work, former senator George McGovern, points out that Social Security is not currently facing a crisis. McGovern discusses ways that we can maintain this program well into the future with just a few simple steps. More significantly, McGovern shows that when properly secured, aging Americans, who are often seen as the source of the alleged Social Security crisis, are actually one of our country's greatest assets. McGovern calls for a partnership across generations, one that will not only keep our most important of social insurance benefits intact, but will also provide many advantages to those over sixty-five and those who have much to learn from them."--Jacket
