Creationism's Trojan Horse: The Wedge of Intelligent Design

by Barbara Forrest and Paul R. Gross
Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2007. 432 pages.

The definitive exposé of the "intelligent design" movement's so-called Wedge strategy, Creationism's Trojan Horse — in Steven Pinker's words — "documents the disturbing movement to sneak religious dogma back into science education, driven by the vague fear that Americans can't handle the truth. Educators, scientists, and politicians would do well to understand this movement and its tactics, and this book is a superb and timely analysis." The paperback edition contains a new chapter on Kitzmiller v. Dover, in which Forrest, a member of NCSE's board of directors, testified for the plaintiffs, as well as a foreword from Americans United for Separation of Church and State's Barry Lynn.
