This collection of 447 annotated references provides an overview of the literature addressing the creation/evolution controversy for students, teachers, lawyers, writers, historians, scientists, sociologists, clerics, and other interested persons.
Fifty-four annotations in the chapter on historical references highlight influential volumes published between 1543 and 1980―classic works that inform the views of later writers. These historical works are listed chronologically in order of publication. The remaining 393 entries feature books published from 1981 (the year of the "Scopes II" trial in Arkansas) to 1996, and include works that address historical, sociological, philosophical, religious, cosmological, geological, biological, and anthropological issues surrounding the creation/evolution controversy.
The annotations are written in an informative, impartial style. Except for references in the chapter containing historical sources and in the chapter featuring works on the history of the creation/evolution controversy, references are grouped under "theistic" and "non-theistic" headings. An introductory essay describes the history of evolutionary theory and creationism, and defines the distinguishing features of each thought system. An annotated list of periodicals featuring articles on creationism and evolutionism is also provided. With author, title, and subject indexes.

About the Author:

James L. Hayward is Professor of Biology at Andrews University, Berrien Springs, Michigan.

Review:

The author...has carefully selected works that represent both sides of the issue...his 13-page introduction provides an excellent overview of the subject...useful for anyone looking for background information on this topic, and will help librarians check their collections for the most notable books, and for both sides of the issue. Highly recommended for high school, public, college, and university libraries. (CHOICE)

...Professor Hayward has produced a notable addition to the Magill Bibliographies, a series which now has over 60 titles to its credit. (Reference Reviews)

Hayward's work is a rich and valuable resource that is indispensable to any high school, college, university, or public library...It is also great fun to read... (E-Streams)
