This is an auction for THE ASSAULT ON REASON by Al Gore.

"As scathing as it is meticulous, Gore's treatise on reason juggernauts its way through the Bush administration, never even needing to include the controversial nature of Bush's presidential elections. He identifies the growing concentration of power in the executive branch virtually ignored by mainstream media. Drawing on the great political philosophers of history and his lengthy career in government, Gore contends that the loss of a genuine public forum in the age of radio and television has led to the decay of democracy. He delivers a serious critique of the United States tempered by hope and faith in the restoration of checks and balances."
- a *** starred *** review in Publishers Weekly (US)

From Wikipedia:

"THE ASSAULT ON REASON is a 2007 book written by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore. In the book, Gore argues that there is a trend in U.S. politics toward ignoring facts and analysis when making policy decisions. He heavily criticizes the George W. Bush administration for its actions in furthering the "assault on reason", and also the Congress, the judiciary, and the press for being complicit in the process. The book ranked number one on the New York Times Best Seller list for hard cover nonfiction during the first four weeks of its release, and was on the list top 35 for fifteen weeks . . . "
