"Beings believe what you tell them. They never check, they never ask, they never think. Tell them the state is menaced by quadrillions of battle droids, and they will not count. Tell them you can save them, and they will never ask—from what, from whom? Just say tyranny, oppression, vague bogeymen that require no analysis. Never specify. Then they look the other way when reality is right in front of them. It's a conjuring trick. The key is distraction, getting them to watch your other hand. Only single-minded beings don't join in the shared illusion, and keep watching you too closely. Single-minded beings are dangerous. And they either work for me, or they don't work at all." - Darth Sidious: Order 66: A Republic Commando Novel

Darth Plagueis was the mastermind behind the rise of Sidious.

So funny that a nut job liberal comes up with the ultimate anti-big government sci-fi story.

Timothy Zahn's "Trawn" Trilogy.

After that, it's a crap shoot

I would start with the Darth Bane trilogy.

You can get all three on Kindle for under $17.

Google "Wookieepedia" if you want supplemental information on the Sith Lords that Bane talks about.

I won't link to Wookieepedia here, I hate Wikia.

ETA

The Admiral Thrawn Trilogy is another good place to start (although the ysalamiri are, IMO, a very poor plot device).

I'd read both of those, then it's a crap shoot.
