Wildlife, War, and God provides a scientist’s perspective on science and government.  The first six chapters are about government control of science with the Endangered Species Act and wildlife. Examples include sage grouse, polar bears, bison, wolves, and spotted owls; and the scientifically subjective designation of subspecies and populations is explained in detail.  The selective use of science by the government regarding caribou and Alaska oil fields is also reviewed.  
The last three chapters deal with other science issues affecting society.  One chapter describes biological aspects of war and how the policy of full integration of women in the military, including combat units, ignored science and was driven by a feminist agenda and not military effectiveness. Another chapter considers belief or non-belief in God as a scientific question with insights on creation, and the evolution of mankind’s mental capacity to comprehend God.
The final chapter describes the period of Lysenkoism in the former Soviet Union and the illegitimate agricultural science resulting from socialism/communism. The book has a common theme that government control of science is characteristic of socialism/communism and its environmentalist, feminist, and atheist agendas, and that we must prevent this from occurring in the U.S.
