About this book

The 1925 trial of John Scopes in tiny Dayton, Tennessee, remains a defining moment in American history. This "trial of the century" – a "media event" before the term was coined – addressed issues that still affect our society today, such as school curriculum control, the ongoing tensions between science and faith in public schools and the ramifications of teaching evolution and human origins.

This book is the first encyclopedic treatment of the Scopes Trial. The text draws on media reports, family interviews and Scopes' personal correspondence, providing new information and perspectives. The book has previously unseen photos and information about Scopes and his relatives, as well as insights about the trial's instigators, participants, and issues, all organized in a concise and easily accessible format.
