  • Out of Iraq (2006) by George McGovern and William R. Polk

  • Ending Hunger Now (2005) by Bob Dole, Donald, E Messer, and George McGovern
    Veteran statesmen George McGovern and Robert Dole here find common cause with theologian and activist Donald Messer in this powerful testimony and appeal to people of faith. They are each convinced we can overcome global hunger now, and their informed, strategic, impassioned thoughts encourage and equip. This book brings together their disparate yet powerful voices behind a shared conviction: that helping the millions who lack basic provision for food has become a religious imperative and human priority. Writing for congregations and individuals of faith, McGovern, Dole, and Messer appeal to the biblical, theological, and ethical foundations of action against hunger.

  • The Essential America: Our Founders and the Liberal Tradition (2004)
    Liberalism is the oldest and most enduring American tradition, a philosophy and way of life we inherited from the Founding Fathers. This is the central idea of The Essential America by George McGovern, America's best-known (and most consistent) liberal.

    Referring us to our moral and spiritual foundations, McGovern not only presents a resounding defense of liberalism as "the most practical and hopeful compass to guide the American ship of state" but offers specific proposals for keeping the tradition vibrant.

    The Essential America proposes programs for feeding the world's malnourished children. Rather than sending our armies abroad, McGovern spells out policies that confront the causes of terrorism. He proposes cutting our military budget (echoing Dwight D. Eisenhower's powerful warning about the military-industrial complex). He condemns preemptive war, criticizes tax cuts for the rich, and warns against government for the powerful minority.

    Americans have traditionally stood for progress, generosity, tolerance, and protection of the needy, McGovern states -- as well as for multi- lateralism in foreign policy and "a decent respect for the opinions of mankind." He reminds us that while creative tension between liberalism and conservatism is the genius of American politics, it is the liberals who have been responsible for every forward step in our national history. They built "the Essential America."

  • The Third Freedom: Ending Hunger in Our Time (2002)
    Hundreds of millions of people around the globe suffer from hunger. But hunger, which has plagued the world for thousands of years, is a political condition, writes George McGovern in this plainspoken and necessary call to action. Ending it is a greater moral imperative than ever before because for the first time humanity has the tools and the knowledge to defeat this ancient enemy.

    In The Third Freedom, McGovern lays out a workable and affordable five-point program to end world hunger. The basic facets include these steps:

    • The United States should take the lead within the UN in working toward a universal school lunch program.

    • The American supplemental nutrition program for low-income women, infants, and children should go worldwide.

    • The United Nations must establish food reserves around the globe.

    • Developing countries must be assisted in improving their own farm production, food processing, and food distribution.

    • High-yielding, scientific agriculture, including genetically modified crops, must be further encouraged and developed.
