    more from this reviewer

    I Also Recommend:

    The best of the several books written about the "Dover Case" which is often referred to as the Scopes Trial of the 21st Century.

    Edward Humes has written a comprehensive and carefully researched and supported summary of the Dover Case from 2005. Dover deals with the conflict between science and religion and more specifically the tension between Darwin's Theory of Evolution and Creationism/Intelligent Design. In this case certain members of the Dover school board were determined to introduce a Creationism biology text into the high school biology curriculum over the opposition of the science faculty and several parents. The parents sued and prevailed in a case which will provide a watershed for future litigation. Humes not only provides extensive interviews with all the principals from both sides of the controversy but details the historical and cultural context going back to the mid-19th Century. His narrative is exceptionally well-written and reads like a well plotted mystery. There have been several books produced in the wake of the Dover case (Kitzmiller v. Dover School District)2005 but this is the most comprehensive and the best documented.

    I have read several of the narratives of the Kitzmiller Vs. Dove

    I have read several of the narratives of the Kitzmiller Vs. Dover School Board and this is clearly the best. I followed
    the trial while it was happening and read the transcripts. Humes does a tremendous job explaining the issues and
    describing how the town became divided over the subject of teaching evolution. It shows clearly what happens when
    the Discovery Institute comes into a school district and stirs up serious trouble. Monkey Girl is a really clear warning
    the dangers of allowing religion to interfere with science education in this country.
