Abstract:

[This book] chronicles the ... controversy over creation and evolution that has been contested in America's classrooms, courthouses, and state legislatures. [The author] examines the ... struggle over the teaching of evoluation in public school, beginning with the publication of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution in 1859, which erupted on the national scene with the anti-evolution crusade and the Scopes trial during the 1920s. The controversy was rekindled in the 1970s, as demands to remove evolution from the classroom were supplemented with calls for the teaching of creation science alongside evolution.-Back cover.
