The writing team of Thomas Patterson and Gary Halter present students with an effective resource in their textbook entitled The American Democracy Texas Edition, ISBN 9780077339067. This book serves as a guide that challenges students to form their own educated viewpoints and become capable political thinkers. A market-leading text for college and university government courses, this latest edition integrates a comprehendible writing style with an unbiased depiction of the American political system. New and updated material are boasted in Thomas Patterson and Gary Halter's most recent edition of The American Democracy Texas Edition including coverage of contemporary political thinking when the partisan lines are so clearly marked and not to be crossed. The understanding of the political realm by Thomas Patterson has been earned through a distinguished educational and professional background. He earned his doctorate degree from the University of Minnesota and currently serves as Bradlee Professor of Government and the Press in the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. Patterson previously served as distinguished professor of political science in the Maxwell School of Citizenship at Syracuse University. He is currently conducting the "Vanishing Voter" study at the Kennedy School of Government, which has been widely used in the media and on college campuses. Patterson also boasts an impressive repertoire in the writing arena as well authoring six books and dozens of articles, which focus primarily on the media and elections. One of his book entitled Out of Order received national attention when President Clinton said every politician and journalist should be required to read it. Another one of Patterson's publications, The Unseeing Eye was recently hailed by the American Association for Public Opinion Research as one of the fifty most influential books of the past half century in the field of public opinion.
