Most widely held works by Gary Hart
James Monroe by Gary Hart( Book )
5 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 1,196 libraries worldwide
The former senator and presidential candidate offers a provocative new assessment of the first "national security president". James Monroe is remembered today primarily for two things: for being the last of the "Virginia Dynasty", following George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison, and for issuing the Monroe Doctrine, his statement of principles in 1823 that the western hemisphere was to be considered closed to European intervention. But Gary Hart sees Monroe as a president ahead of his time, whose priorities and accomplishments in establishing America's "national security" have a great deal in common with chief executives of our own time. Unlike his predecessors Jefferson and Madison, Monroe was at his core a military man. He joined the Continental Army at the age of seventeen and served with distinction in many pivotal battles. He is prominently featured at Washington's side in the iconic painting Washington Crossing the Delaware. And throughout his career as a senator, governor, ambassador, secretary of state, secretary of war, and president, he never lost sight of the fact that without secure borders and friendly relations with neighbors, the American people could never be truly safe in their independence. As president he embarked on an ambitious series of treaties, annexations, and military confrontations that would secure America's homeland against foreign attack for nearly two hundred years. Hart details the accomplishments and priorities of this forward-looking president, whose security concerns clearly echo those we face in our time

Would the KGB ever plot terrorist attacks against high-ranking American officials -- on American soil? Could a United States senator turn out to be a "mole" working for the Soviet Union?
Right from the start; a chronicle of the McGovern campaign by Gary Hart( Book )
8 editions published in 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 800 libraries worldwide
In large part, this is the story of my experience inside the McGovern Presidential campaign as its first full-time staff member. If this book has a single purpose, it is to share that experience with the reader, to give as accurate an account as possible of how a Presidential campaign evolves and, on a day-to-day, personal basis, what it is really like. Since this is more a personal journal than an exhaustive history, I do not claim to be detached. But I have tried to be fair. - Preface
The fourth power : a grand strategy for the United States in the twenty-first century by Gary Hart( Book )
20 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 715 libraries worldwide
"Today, even as America asserts itself globally, it lacks a grand strategy to replace "containment of communism." In this book, Gary Hart outlines a new grand strategy, one directing America's powers to the achievement of its large purposes." "Central to this strategy is the power of American principles, what Hart calls "the fourth power." Constitutional liberties, representative government, press freedom - these and other democratic principles, attractive to peoples worldwide, constitute a resource that may prove as important to national security and the national interest in this dangerous new century as traditional military, economic, and political might." "Applying the best insights of strategy to statecraft, Hart finds confusion, hubris, and "theological" simplicity in America's current foreign policy. Nor does he believe the war on terror, necessary in the near term, will itself serve to chart America's larger strategic course. A vision of an America responsive to a full spectrum of global challenges, The Fourth Power calls for an understanding both of the threats we face and the profound strengths at our disposal to fight them."--Jacket

The shield and the cloak : the security of the commons by Gary Hart( Book )
15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 625 libraries worldwide
"Gary Hart has long been one of the nation's foremost experts on national security, combining a deep knowledge of national security policy with first-hand experience of the political realities that influence how America safeguards itself and its interests. In his new book, Hart outlines, in clear, simple prose, the fundamental changes with which America must grapple when confronting a terrorist threat that has no state and no geographic homebase and thus offers no genuine target for the world's largest and most sophisticated military force."--Page 2 of cover
America can win : the case for military reform by Gary Hart( Book )
5 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 618 libraries worldwide
America Can Win is a powerful, nonpartisan analysis of what needs to be done to revitalize our armed forces, which have not won a major victory since the Inchon landing during the Korean War. Senator Gary Hart is co-founder of the Military Reform Caucus, a group of more than one hundred thirty senators and congressmen from both sides of the aisle whose central concern is not the size of our defense budget, but how effectively we use it. After more than four years of intensive military buildup, America Can Win takes a close look at our combat readiness and finds it woefully inadequate. Senator Hart believes the Pentagon comes up with the wrong answers because it asks the wrong questions about such vital matters as weapons, force structure, officer education, troop training, field tactics and military organization. This book calls for fundamental changes in all of these areas. - Jacket flap

Restoration of the republic : the Jeffersonian ideal in 21st-century America by Gary Hart( Book )
11 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 569 libraries worldwide
Hart revisits arguments first offered in The Patriot (1996) and The Minuteman (1998) for increasing the involvement of the National Guard (the militia of the Constitution) in matters of national security, an argument given new timeliness in the aftermath of September 11. He also offers a consideration of Thomas Jefferson's idea that the growing union should develop "ward republics" by which power could be devolved and local decision-making encouraged. Arguing that the nation-state is increasingly ineffectual in the age of transnational economies and roving bands of terrorists, a time "characterized by the erosion of national authority and the weakening of national sovereignty," Hart makes a strong case for the republican virtue of allowing local people to make some of the day-by-day decisions that affect their lives

One bright shining moment the forgotten summer of George McGovern ( visu )
2 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 441 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?
