Summary
In this story of evolution, religion, politics, and personalities, writer Chapman captures the story behind the headlines in the debate over God and science in America. In Kitzmiller v. Dover Board of Education, decided in late 2005, a Republican judge rendered a surprising verdict in a case that pitted the teaching of intelligent design against the teaching of evolution. Taking place in a small Pennsylvania school district, the case had national repercussions. Chapman, the great-great-grandson of Charles Darwin, covered the trial from beginning to end. Through his encounters with the participants--creationists, preachers, teachers, scientists on both sides of the issue, lawyers, theologians, the judge, and the parents who resisted the fundamentalist proponents of intelligent design--Chapman tells a story of ordinary people doing battle in America over the place of religion and science in modern life.--From publisher description
