Defending evolution, as strange as it may seem [Book Review]

Evolution 56 (1):206-208 (2002)
The wake-up call has been sounded many times, and yet scientists and science educators keep trying to ignore it: turn- ing the other cheek, asleep in their ivory towers. Creationists have made steady advances since the 1960s, despite having been repeatedly and soundly defeated in the courtrooms (the last time they won a legal battle was at the Scopes trial in Tennessee in 1925). The advances are being made at the level that is farthest from the everyday concern of most evolu- tionary biologists: the grassroots level of junior and high school students, their parents and—astoundingly—their teachers.
