Request for Info

Does anyone know where I could find literature on the relationship between Hume’s epistemological views (especially his views on induction) and his political views? Reading through some of the relevant material makes me suspect there should be a close connection – roughly that in each case past theorists have erred by expecting too much of reason, and in giving too little weight to Custom and Habit. But I’m a rank amateur, and I suspect this is the kind of thing on which experts have written valuable things.
