GUEST HOST: Lee Cowan

COVER STORY: Made in U.S.A.: Bringing manufacturing jobs back to the homeland
In 1980 almost 80% of clothing bought in America was made in this country. Today, it's around 3%. But Bayard Winthrop, founder and CEO of the sportswear company American Giant, is trying to turn that around, helping to rebuild an infrastructure and workforce to manufacture clothing that proudly bears the label "Made in USA." He took correspondent John Blackstone on a tour of the production cycle, from cotton farm to finished hoodie.

She talks with Lesley Stahl about her call to arms in the face of a government shutdown earlier this year; about demands for safety in the air; and the prospects of America's labor movement in a climate where the rules often cater to the front office and Wall Street.

MILITARY: Gen. James Mattis
James Mattis served more than 40 years in the Marines, much of it commanding troops in battle. But he almost didn't make it to boot camp. In this extensive two-part interview, he talks with David Martin about his years in Afghanistan and Iraq, following orders from the Bush administration that he characterized as incoherent, and serving as Secretary of Defense under President Trump. He also talks about his distaste for his colorful nickname, "Mad Dog," and shows off his library of 7,000 books, to which he's added another – his own, titled "Call Sign Chaos: Learning to Lead."

Tony Dokoupil talked with the entertainer, who has sold more than 100 million albums, and who is this year's Grammys MusiCares Person of the Year for her charity work.
