Darwinism and its Discontents

Cambridge, MA: Cambridge University Press, 2006. 316 pages.

The latest from NCSE Supporter Michael Ruse, Darwinism and its Discontents offers a review and defense of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. In the introduction, Ruse writes: "All the critics of Darwinism are deeply mistaken. Charles Darwin was a good scientist, the biological revolution of the nineteenth century led to genuine understanding, and today's version of the theory is good quality science. It tells you important things about the real world. ... [And] it can and should provide a positive and creative stimulus for religious people to think about their faith and move forward in a richer and deeper way."
