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.
