People vs. Government: The Responsiveness of American Institutions
People vs. Government: The Responsiveness of American Institutions
Edited by Leroy N. Rieselbach
Indiana University Press, 1975, 374 pp

Some excellent essays on the presidency, Congress, the Supreme Court, the Federal bureaucracy, state and local governments, the military, and the police. The conclusions are generally bleak: institutions are responsive to special interests rather than to the general welfare and are hampered by antiquated structures.
