Evolution in the Courtroom: A Reference Guide

by Randy Moore
Santa Barbara, CA: ABC-Clio, 2001. 381 pages.

Recounting the legal history of the creationism/evolution debate, from the Scopes trial on, Evolution in the Courtroom also offers extras such as excerpts from key legal documents, a detailed chronology, and profiles of the major players, such as Frank White, the Arkansas governor who signed a "balanced treatment" act without even reading it. The reviewer for American Reference Books Annual praised Evolution in the Courtoom as "a wonderful addition to a school library, preferably high school, as well as in a science classroom reference library."
