Bully for Brontosaurus: Reflections in Natural History
New York: W. W. Norton & Company, 1992. 540 pages.
NCSE Supporter Stephen Jay Gould's role in developing the model of punctuated equilibria and his monthly column in Natural History have made him a popular writer who needs no introduction. Bully for Brontosaurus contains no fewer than 35 of his compulsively readable essays, including 3 — "William Jenning Bryan's Last Campaign", "An Essay on a Pig Roast", and "Justice Scalia's Misunderstanding" — devoted to the evolution/creation controversy in the US.
