Editorial Reviews

Review

Those who read this with an open mind, from either side of the controversy, should better understand the value of separation of church and state. (Library Journal)

The book is a history of attempts to restrict teaching in evolution.... This slim book is remarkably helpful in understanding how and why teaching religion in public schools has been vexed throughout history.... Recommended. (R.R. Sherman CHOICE)

Mano's captivating new book draws on his knowledge of both history and science to provide an expert analysis of the ongoing opposition to the teaching of evolution in America's public schools. He offers a clearly written, concise explanation of the evolution-religion controversy which has continued to play out in local school districts across the country. This is an absolute "must read" for school officials and community members alike . . . indeed for anyone interested in a fascinating illustration of who decides what should be taught in our nation's schools. (Jim Paces, executive director of curriculum, Shaker Heights City Schools, Ohio)

In recounting the history of creationism through major legal cases, Professor Singham correctly exposes the fear that drives creationists to keep searching for ways to undermine the teaching of evolution despite consistent defeats in the federal courts. He shows convincingly that, while religious objections to evolution persist, such objections are ultimately powerless to stop the advancement of science. This book expands the growing list of excellent books available for anyone who wants to understand the phenomenon of American creationism. (Barbara Forrest, co-author Creationism?s Trojan Horse: The Wedge of Intelligent Design, Oxford University Press, 2004, 2007.)

I have not read this book, but I felt bad when Mano said on his blog that there had not been a single review, positive or negative, on Amazon. FTFY!
