Drawing on personal interviews with McGovern, campaign manager Gary Hart, and other participants, as well as unpublished campaign records, the author captures the political and human drama of Eagleton's brief candidacy. It also includes the author's insights into the America of 1972, an era that resonates in fascinating ways with our own.
