In the summer of 1925, the sleepy hamlet of Dayton, Tennessee, became the unlikely setting for one of our century's most contentious dramas: the Scopes trial and the ensuing debate over science, religion, and their place in education. Pairing archival material with the author's keen legal and historical analysis, this book provides a fresh interpretation of this pivotal event in American history. Illustrations.
