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 http://reports.ncse.com. 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.
