Cass R. Sunstein & Adrian Vermeule, Law and Leviathan: Redeeming the Administrative State (2020).

Abstract: Many Americans fear the power of unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats – the deep state. Cass Sunstein and Adrian Vermeule seek to calm those fears by proposing a moral regime to ensure that government rulemakers behave transparently and don’t abuse their authority. The administrative state may be a Leviathan, but it can be a principled one.
