July is flying by but there’s plenty of time to dive into POGO’s 2015 Summer Reading List, which features some of the top non-fiction books published in the last year. The smorgasbord of books we've recommended for you looks at everything from high-tech threats to our democracy to fun picks on how to read between the lines when it comes to U.S. politics. As always, our books touch on issues involving oversight and often provide solutions to conducting effective oversight, whether it’s in Congress, the White House or the Pentagon.

When selecting books, we looked for solid research and a clear foundation from which to begin a debate. We are not endorsing every position taken in these books, but we are very excited about the complex topics these authors are trying to contextualize for a broader discussion.

Check out our top ten books to read this summer!
