RNCSE 34:1 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 34, number 1 — features Joseph E. Armstrong and Marshall D. Sundberg's "Yes, Bobby, Evolution is True!"; Barbara Forrest's "Louisiana's Love Affair with Creationism"; and Stanley A. Rice's "Confessions of an Oklahoma Evolutionist." And for his regular People and Places column, Randy Moore discusses the petroleum magnate and paleontology fan Harry Sinclair.

Plus a host of reviews of books on evolutionary biology: Robert M. Cox reviews Daphne J. Fairbairn's Odd Couples, James H. Hunt reviews Robert E. Page Jr.'s The Spirit of the Hive, Roy E. Plotnick reviews Douglas H. Erwin and James W. Valentine's The Cambrian Explosion, John H. Relethford reviews Edward O. Wilson's The Social Conquest of Earth, Christopher Irwin Smith reviews John N. Thompson's Relentless Evolution, and Tara C. Smith reviews Roberto Kolter and Stanley Maloy's edited collected Microbes and Evolution.

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 34:1, 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 regular column interviewing NCSE's favorite people, and more besides.
