Jeffrey P. Moran. American genesis : the antievolution controversies from Scopes to creation science. Oxford University Press, c2012.

QH362.M67 2012

 

The question of teaching evolution in the public schools is a continuing and frequently heated political issue in America. From Tennessee's Scopes Trial in 1925 to recent battles that have erupted in Louisiana, Kansas, Ohio, and countless other localities, the critics and supporters of evolution have fought nonstop over the role of science and religion in American public life. This book explores the ways in which the evolution debate has reverberated beyond the confines of state legislatures and courthouses. The author shows that social forces such as gender, regionalism, and race have intersected with the debate over evolution in ways that shed light on modern American culture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

G. Edward White. Law in American history. Oxford University Press, c2012.

KF352.W48 2012

 

In the first of the three volumes of a projected comprehensive narrative history of the role of law in America from the colonial years through the twentieth century, this book takes up the central themes of American legal history from the earliest European settlements through the Civil War. It incorporates recent scholarship in anthropology, ethnography, and economic, political, intellectual and legal history to produce a narrative that is both revisionist and accessible, taking up the familiar topics of race, gender, slavery, and the treatment of native Americans from fresh perspectives. Along the way the author provides a compelling case for why law can be seen as the key to understanding the development of American life as we know it.
