What started as a debate among scientists has become a full-scale public battle.
In this sequel to his award-winning Doubts about Darwin, Thomas Woodward traces the struggle that has emerged as the two sides wrestle with questions of the origin of life. Woodward answers these questions and more:
• Who are the key players on each side, and what contributions have they made?
• How has the debate developed, and where is it headed in the future?
• What conclusions can we draw about our origins based on the scientific evidence?
There is no better guide to help you navigate this important debate.
