RNCSE 32:1 now on-line

NCSE is pleased to announce that the latest issue of Reports of the National Center for Science Education is now available on-line. The issue — volume 32, number 1 — features two articles by T. Joe Willey discussing a recent controversy over evolution education at La Sierra University and reflecting on evolution education in Seventh-Day Adventist higher education in general, and a detailed account by Richard B. Hoppe of the Freshwater case in Mount Vernon, Ohio. For his regular People and Places column, Randy Moore discusses the controversial career of the twentieth-century preacher and crusader against evolution Aimee Semple McPherson (1890-1944).

Plus a host of reviews of books on the history of science: NCSE's Glenn Branch reviews Thomas F. Glick's What about Darwin?; David F. Prindle reviews Richard York and Brent Clark's The Science and Humanism of Stephen Jay Gould; E. G. Leigh Jr. reviews Mark E. Borrello's Evolutionary Restraints: The Contentious History of Group Selection; Stephen Pruett-Jones reviews Oren Harman's The Price of Altruism: George Price and the Search for the Origins of Kindness; Stanley A. Rice and Lisette Rice review James D. Loy and Kent M. Loy's Emma Darwin; and Tom Wanamaker reviews C. A. P. Saucier's The Lucy Man.

All of these articles, features, and reviews are freely available in PDF form from Members of NCSE will shortly be receiving in the mail the print supplement to Reports 32:1, which, in addition to summaries of the on-line material, contains news from the membership, a regular column in which NCSE staffers offer personal reports on what they've been doing to defend the teaching of evolution, a new regular column interviewing NCSE's favorite people — members of NCSE's board of directors, NCSE's Supporters, recipients of NCSE's Friend of Darwin award, and so on — and more besides.
