The Man in the Arena offers a political history of the U.S. from the late 1930s to 1980, told through the experiences of a U.S. senator who was deeply involved in the most crucial issues of the times and was one of the century's most renowned liberal senators. At the height of American liberalism, Gale McGee was elected to the U.S. Senate from conservative Republican Wyoming in 1958 and reelected twice. Rodger McDaniel's elegantly conceived biography of a liberal from conservative rural Wyoming offers readers a glimpse into formative political shifts. Senator McGee was a major player in the development of America's post-WWII foreign policy and almost every legislative milestone in U.S. history from the 1950s to 1980. This event is co-hosted by ADST & DACOR.
