Dependent on DC undoubtedly will pull you in merely by the title. Charlotte Twight chronicles the gradual evolution of growing government and eventual control. The most frightening is her description of the rise of federal data collection.

The Rise of Federal Control over the Lives of Ordinary Americans. Twight does a good job debunking the idea that the welfare megastate we now have is the result of popular desires rationally translated into policy, as all too many naive academics would have it.
