More than eighty years after the scopes trial, the debate over teaching evolution continues in spite of the emptiness of creationist positions. This accessible resource, now completely revised and updated, provides an essential introduction to the ongoing dispute's many facets--the scientific evidence for evolution, the legal and educational basis for its teaching, and the various religious points of view--as well as a concise history of the evolution-creationism controversy.
The Second Edition also contains a discussion of the legal history, updated to include the seminal case Kitzmiller v. Dover, as well as a new chapter on public opinion and media coverage.
