About This Item

New York NY, Oxford University Press, 1985, hardcover, vi-222 pp, first edition, first printing by numberline, Fine in Very Good dustjacket. Straight, tight and clean with no wear or markings. Dustjacket unclipped with original price, light edge bumps, tiny nicks to rear panel, in new Brodart sleeve. In tracing the roots of these debates, on the teaching of evolution in public schools from even before the 1925 Scopes trial, to the more popular public acceptance in recent years of a "creationist" theory, Larson shows how public attitudes have changed little since the 20s, and why, legislators and the judiciary have more often sided with prevailing public sentiment and avoided ruling on the scientific merits of either side. Appended; Conclusion, Appendix containing bibliographic data for multiple-edition, high-school, life-science textbooks published between 1959 and 1920 and contained in the Library of Congress, Notes, Bibliographic Note, Index.
