A wonderful book! ( )

A journalist describes and comments on the history of various cases of government misrepresentation of science for political and ideological motives, citing three governments as particularly noteworthy in this regard: Hitler's Germany, Stalin's Russia, and George W. Bush's America ( )

The less-than-pleasant tale of how politics has corrupted science (in Stalin's Russia, Nazi Germany, and Bush's America). ( )

Exhaustively researched and footnoted, Corrupted Science is excellent reading for anyone who believes that science is worth fighting for.
