I read this book in an American Political Economy course. It's very well-written considering the subject matter. It's a general history of the direct relationship between corporations and our government and how it evolved over the years. It explains how we got to this point where it's often tough to tell the difference between corporations and the government. If you're interested in the subject, you should read this one (it's also pretty short).
