Editorial Reviews

Review


"Moran...explores aspects of creationism that receive scant attention elsewhere...A well-written, thoroughly researched, valuable contribution. Highly recommended." --CHOICE


"Just when I thought there was little more to be said about creationism in America along comes Jeffrey Moran's sparkling new book, American Genesis. It not only introduces previously overlooked groups such as women and African Americans but also sheds welcome new light on the entire century-old controversy."-- Ronald L. Numbers, author of The Creationists


"How has antievolution survived what Walter Lippmann called 'the acids of modernity'? Looking carefully at American diversity-racial, religious, and regional-Jeffrey P. Moran provides our best set of answers since Lippmann himself. Modernity has its own chemistry, to be sure, but it will never dissolve our deepest differences. And nobody has told that tale with more originality--or more sensitivity--than Jeff Moran." -- Jonathan Zimmerman, New York University


"There is a long and disappointing history of antievolutionism in the United States, but many components of the story are unfamiliar. The role of region, women, and race, just for starters, deserves to be better known, as do the little-known stories of evangelical scholars who accept evolution. Moran's book is a welcome addition to this scholarship. I learned a lot from it."-- Eugenie C. Scott, National Center for Science Education
