Summary
  • "Wright Patman often operated on the margins of Washington politics, but through the force of his personality and his effectiveness as a speaker, he was able to coerce his colleagues to address his reform agenda. His abilities as a campaigner and his dependability as a Democratic vote in Congress on all questions except civil rights made him an important though sometimes unwelcome ally for the Democratic presidents under whom he served."
  • "The last major fight of his career was his futile effort to retain his chairmanship of the Banking and Currency Committee in 1975. His defeat was a testimonial to the changes liberalism underwent during his career in Washington, D.C.A new generation of reformers no longer cared about the economic populism that drove much of his agenda for forty-seven years." "This book is essential reading for anyone interested in twentieth-century politics and policy development."--Jacket
