Overview

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.

George McGovern 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. McGovern 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, McGovern’s What It Means to Be a Democrat offers a vision of the Party’s future in which ideological coherence and courage rule.

Praise

"[McGovern] remains one of the country’s most decent and thoughtful public servants."
- Tom Brokaw, The Greatest Generation

"In a book that is far more serious-minded than some of those written by actual 2012 presidential candidates, McGovern lays out a series of ideas aimed at fixing the nation’s job crisis, improving health care and education and reducing the widening gap between the rich and everyone else."
- Star Tribune
