So glad you asked. I am about a quarter of the way through "The War On Science" (2016) by Shawn Otto, subtitled "Who's waging it; why it matters; what we can do about it".
I had already read "Censoring Science" (2008) by Mark Bowen and "The Republican Ware on Science" (2005) by Chris Mooney, but Otto's new book is so much broader, detailed, encompassing, historical, philosophical, up-to-date, and forward-looking, that it is hands down a must read for all citizens, and not just of the United States. Though I live in North American, I am not an 'American' citizen, so I won't get into politics except to note that no political party escapes Otto's critical examination. If you care about your country, please read this book.
