McGovern's Common Sense Is Back!
George McGovern's, The Essential America, is a candid, refreshingly-honest discussion of American liberalism, today's 'most maligned political philosophy.' This great American statesman tackles the criticism of liberalism head-on, and clearly demonstrates how both the liberal and conservative traditions have evolved and eroded politically. George McGovern remains ever-faithful to the 'social gospel,' teachings instilled in him at an early age by his father, a devoted follower of John Wesley. Moreover, McGovern's political beliefs are soundly rooted in the U.S. Constitution. McGovern remains unafraid of espousing liberalism--whether it be Jefferson's, Lincoln's, or his own. In so-doing, he shows just how far America has strayed from the brilliant guidance of our founding fathers. He addresses all of the toughest issues of our day, including the war in Iraq, world hunger, and, of course, international terrorism. This is a book only George McGovern could have written--specific, thoughtful, provocative-- a blueprint for a wiser, stronger American future in a more peaceful world.
