The Evolution Controversies from Scopes to Creation Science

Jeffrey P. Moran

  • Goes beyond a depiction of legal and political battles to explore the ideology and identities of both creationists and evolutionary scientists.
  • Analyzes the roles that race and gender have played in the antievolution controversies and, conversely, examines the ways in which overlooked groups have made their own use of creationism and evolutionary thought.
  • Situates the antievolution impulse within the context of American populism and regionalism.
