Reasonable people disagree about the reach of the federal government, but there is near-universal consensus that it should protect us from such dangers as bacteria-infested food, harmful drugs, toxic pollution, crumbling bridges, and unsafe toys. And yet, the agencies that shoulder these responsibilities are in shambles. In Professor Steinzor's timely new book, The People's Agents and the Battle to Protect the American Public (University of Chicago Press), she and co-author Sidney Shapiro take a hard look at the tangled web of problems that have led to this dire state of affairs.
