    A Brilliant and Insightful Tribute

    Robert P. Watson has edited a brilliant tribute to the life and legacy of George McGovern. Included in this work are thoughtful essays about McGovern's upbringing, military service, and Congressional and Senatorial terms. His immeasurable impact upon the reform of the Democratic Party is well presented in a chapter by Stephen Ward. Russell Willis and (Wilson biographer)Thomas Knock offer insightful essays on McGovern's statesmanship and legacy. A chapter by Ahrar Ahmad regarding McGovern's directorship of Food for Peace is a fitting and touching tribute. As Senator Tom Daschle has observed, 'admirers of George McGovern will have their admiration for the man reinforced...even many who disagree with his politics are likely to discover a new respect for the man.'
