Great theatre : the American Congress in the 1990s by Samuel C Patterson( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using the theatre metaphor to characterize the actions of Congress and to help make the institution more understandable, congressional life and behavior are dissected and placed in the broader context of changes in Congress in the 1990s. The contributors evaluate the way members of Congress play to the media and the larger audience, the electorate; analyze leadership roles in a cast of 535 "leading players"; evaluate the committee systems as "little theatre"; and analyze relations among the various branches of government. Coeditors Herbert Weisberg and Samuel Patterson conclude the unique presentation by reminding us that in Congress, "the play's the thing."
