The Rise of a Prairie Statesman: The Life and Times of George McGovern (Politics and Society in Twentieth-Century America) - Thomas J. Knock

My fourth podcast for the New Books Network is up! In it, I interview historian Thomas Knock about The Rise of a Prairie Statesman, the first volume of his new study of the life and times of the Democratic senator and former presidential nominee George McGovern, a figure he argues was of far greater historical consequence than has often been appreciated. Enjoy!
