Crypto: How the Code Rebels Beat the Government — Saving Privacy in the Digital Age by Stephen Levy (Penguin, 2001, ISBN 0-14-024432-8) covers the "crypto wars" of the 1990s in detail. "Code Rebels" in the title is almost synonymous with "cypherpunks".

This Machine Kills Secrets: How Wikileakers, Cypherpunks, And Hacktivists Aim To Free The World's Information by Andy Geenbeg (Dutton 2012)

Much of the plot revolves around cypherpunk ideas; the leading characters are building a data haven which will allow anonymous financial transactions, and the book is full of cryptography.
