The Devil in Dover

by Lauri Lebo
New York: New Press, 2008. 238 pages.

From the publisher: "Lauri Lebo, a small-town reporter who covered the trial, knows not just the legal case and science, but the people on all sides of the divisive battle. ... Lebo follows the story through its surprising twists, pondering whether this was a national war playing out in a small town or a small-town political battle playing out on the national stage. As a 'local girl' with a fundamentalist Christian father, Lebo provides an account that is both fascinating and moving, as she thoughtfully probes one of America's most divisive cultural conflicts — and the responsibility journalists have when covering such a controversial story."
