Professor Edward Larson's "Summer for the Gods" Mentioned in Washington Post Opinion Article on Anniversary of Scopes Trial
Professor Edward J. Larson's book, Summer for the Gods: The Scopes Trial and America's Continuing Debate Over Science and Religion, is mentioned in the Washington Post opinion article, "Foes of science faced ridicule at the Scopes trial. We're paying the price 95 years later." Summer for the Gods won the 1998 Pulitzer Prize in History. The book was recently released in a new paperback edition with a new afterword.

Larson's Pulitzer Prize-winning account, "Summer for the Gods: The Scopes Trial and America's Continuing Debate Over Science and Religion," which is even more timely now than when it was published in 1997.
