RNCSE 32:5 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 5 — features Minda Berbeco's "The Butterfly Effect," reporting on butterflies and climate change, and Jere H. Lipps's "A Thrilling Chase," reviewing Nick Lane's Life Ascending. For his regular People and Places column, Randy Moore discusses the career of Sue Hicks, the original Boy Named Sue, who served as a member of the prosecution in the Scopes trial.

Plus a host of reviews of books on creationism's past and present: Taner Edis reviews Jason Rosenhouse's Among the Creationists, Matthew H. Haber reviews Bradley Monton's Seeking God in Science, Adam Laats reviews Jeffrey P. Moran's American Genesis, Steve Watkins reviews David E. Long's Evolution and Religion in American Education, Bruce H. Weber reviews Alister E. McGrath's Darwinism and the Divine, and Robert "Mac" West reviews Warren D. Allmon's Evolution and Creationism.

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 32:5, 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, and more besides.
