"One of the most substantial and scholarly counterattacks against creationism to date....The myths which creationists present to the public as historical fact are systematically debunked....This carefully chosen collection should appeal to informed general readers"--Library Journal. "One ofthe strongest, most enlightened sources for understanding the present dispute and its dangerous portents"--Kirkus Reviews. In this volume, Stephen Jay Gould, Isaac Asimov, and others provide a powerful rebuttal to "Creation Science," and offer insights into the teaching of science.
M. F. Ashley Montagu is at Princeton University.

From Our Editors

The twenty essays collected here-most of them written expressly for this book-offer a powerful rebuttal to the claims of the so-called 'Scientific Creationists, ' who have gained considerable exposure in recent years. The 'Creationist, ' using the Book of Genesis as their main authority, have argued that evolution is an unsound explanation of the origins of life and its diversity, and have sought in several states to introduce their ideas into public school curriculums.
