A fascinating look at the role that incorporation has had on the politics and culture of America. A "classic" book (first came out in 1982), _The Incorporation of America_ deftly traces the roots of what Ike later called "the military industrial complex" and the ways in which "democracy"/"culture" shifted as terms to mean "power"/"hierarchy." An engaging read.
