Corrupted Science: Fraud, Ideology and Politics in Science
by John Grant
No current Talk conversations about this book.
Disappointingly poor. A concoction of half truths and many opinions slanted to his view of what is correct. If he disagrees, then it must be wrong.
After awhile, I jumped from one subject to another with no better results. One thing I fail to understand is his desire to use an alias. Definitely not worthy of passing on to the next reader..
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.

The final chapter has been expanded to include the full-blooded assault on science mounted by the Trump administration.

A great book for people who like history, factoids, and scientific weirdness. Also good for those who think that our current era of anti-science crusading is anything new. ( )
