"Although there are many books that discuss the theories of evolution and creationism, this 415-page encyclopedia is unique in emphasizing the people and places that have played an important role in the evolution-creationism debate over the years. . . . Entries are well written, descriptive, and take an objective tone. . . . Overall, this book meets its stated goals and is recommended for a general audience through first-year college students."
"This book is a balanced look at the players in this 150-year-old debate, written to be accessible to readers from high school on. Although it is a reference book, it is surprisingly interesting as a general primer on the topic, leading the reader easily from entry to entry. …Highly recommended for public and high school libraries; also useful for undergraduates approaching these topics for the first time."
