More than Darwin: An Encyclopedia of the People and Places of the Evolution–Creationism Controversy

by Randy Moore and Mark D Decker
Westport, CT: Greenwood Press, 2008. 415 pages.

More than Darwin provides a carefully researched and lavishly illustrated account of over 500 people, places, and organizations that figure prominently in the creationism/evolution controversy, from Adam and Eve to Evelle J. Younger (who, as attorney general of California in 1975, declared that "balanced treatment" acts were unconstitutional). The reviewer for Library Journal wrote, "It is a major source of information on the subject, covering the entire range of topics in the history of the debate. ... This accessible resource is a great tool for anyone looking for short and concise background on the evolution–creationism controversy. Recommended for all public and high school libraries."
