Evolution vs. Creationism 2nd Edition

by Eugenie C. Scott
Berkeley: UC Press, 2009. 351 pages.

From the publisher: "More than eighty years after the Scopes trial, the debate over teaching evolution continues in spite of the emptiness of the 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. This second edition also contains a discussion of the legal history, updated to include the seminal case of Kitzmiller v. Dover as well as a new chapter on public opinion and media coverage."
