Most widely held works by Samuel C Patterson
The legislative process in the United States by Malcolm E Jewell( Book )

39 editions published between 1966 and 1986 in English and held by 1,624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, when it was first published 20 years ago, was received with some reservations since it made a comparative study of legislative processes in the United States at the federal and state levels--an enterprise thought to be not viable given the unique characteristics of each state legislature and the American Congress. Over the last 20 years, however, these reservations have disappeared and there is growing recognition of the value of the comparative study. This fourth edition of the book has been completely rewritten and made concise. Special attention has been given to the growth of the independent influence of the individual member, a recent trend. More important, the structural-functional systems analysis, which provided a theoretical framework for the earlier editions, has been abandoned in favor of an approach that is more effective in helping students understand the operation of the American legislative process.

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

13 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 620 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."
