In the poli-sci literature--politics and science, not political science--an important new book has come out; and no, I'm not talking about my own book in paperback. It's a more scholarly take on the problem, entitled Rescuing Science from Politics: Regulation and the Distortion of Scientific Research, a collection of essays edited by Wendy Wagner and Rena Steinzor, both legal scholars who helped me out a bunch as I worked on The Republican War on Science and who are doing some of the most important thinking about this stuff. The book has a prologue by Don Kennedy, who writes that "though it is a good time for science, it is a perilous time for scientists." And it has chapters by a number of leading scholars and scientists like David Michaels and Sheldon Krimsky. Check it out here. I am just starting to read it now...
