Although much has been written about the famous 1925 “Monkey Trial” in Dayton, Tennessee, most accounts are skewed in order to shed the best possible light on evolution. This handy, 48-page booklet, however, outlines the real facts surrounding the case. For example, far from being a dedicated teacher hounded by fundamentalists, high school teacher John Scopes never taught evolution at Dayton, but rather allowed himself to be a “test case” for those who wanted to see evolution taught in public schools. Meticulously researched and illustrated, this book sets the record straight.
