6 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One bright shining moment the forgotten summer of George McGovern( Visual )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member 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?
