Summary
  • "With a merciless eye for historical absurdity, Steven M. Gillon examines this century's reforms and legal innovation - federal welfare policy, community mental health, immigration, and campaign finance reform, to name an additional few - and describes the unintended consequences of their enactment. The result is a brisk, instructive, and disturbing study that will be required reading for all students of government and society, and for anyone who wishes to avoid the perils that stalk legislative bodies."--Jacket
