A glimpse of Teaching Evolution in a Creation Nation

Teaching Evolution in a Creation NationNCSE is pleased to offer a free preview (PDF) of Adam Laats and Harvey Siegel's Teaching Evolution in a Creation Nation (University of Chicago Press, 2016). The preview consists of chapter 3, "The Dog That Didn't Bark," which discusses "the long period between roughly 1930 and 1960 in which the issue [of evolution education] disappeared from the nation's headlines. However, people hadn't stopped caring about it."

"What do you get when you cross a historian and a philosopher? If it’s Laats and Siegel, the answer is Teaching Evolution in a Creation Nation. Thoughtful and provocative, historically detailed and philosophically informed, this book is a must for anyone interested in understanding the conflict over evolution education in the United States," wrote NCSE's deputy director Glenn Branch.
