Power and Method

I'm teaching a research methods course this spring, and one of the things
I do early on is to have the class understand the politics of methodology.
I would like to have a reading relating "scientific method" to the
development of 20th century capitalism (e.g. focusing on the rise of
big science, the relationship between positivism and the need to control
through indirect means, etc.).  Can someone suggest something suitable?
