Summary

This award winning text draws on history, science, and philosophy to examine the development of evolutionary thought. The red-hot issue of evolution versus creation is still scorching across the United States-in states from Texas to New Hampshire. Updated through current events, this second edition focuses on the great debates that have engaged, divided, stimulated, and provoked scientists and others to ponder the origins of humankind. The Evolution Wars draws on history, science, and philosophy to examine the development of evolutionary thought through the past two and a half centuries. It focuses on the great debates, including the 19th century clash over the nature of classification and debates about the fossil record, genetics, and human nature. The text also provides details about the rise of "creation science" and its role in public schools curricula as a subject on par with evolution. As an added benefit, Evolution Wars includes a collection of interesting photographs, ranging from portraits to facsimiles of original texts. This thought-provoking encyclopedia is a much-needed resource in public libraries, university collections along with high school libraries.
