Grade 8 Up-Solidly researched titles, written in a lively manner to draw and keep readers' attention. The authors examine the changing times and the clash of ideas behind both of these famous trials. DeVillers describes the financial and personal difficulties that plagued Brown throughout his life as well as his strong faith in the Bible that fueled his radical beliefs. Hanson presents an account of what was billed as the "trial of the century." In 1925, John T. Scopes challenged the Tennessee law against teaching the theory of evolution. Concluding chapters present court decisions since the 1960s dealing with the teaching of evolution in public schools. Each book contains black-and-white photographs and reproductions, discussion questions, and chapter notes. Both of these titles explore important chapters in the development of the United States and introduce young people to legal terminology and procedures.
