Published on the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Scopes trial, this book vividly recalls that famous episode through an array of fascinating archival photographs, many of them never before published. Images of the circus-like atmosphere that overtook Dayton, Tennessee during the trial alternate with candid photos of the key players. The accompanying text and captions summarize the events and clarify the underlying issues of the trial. While the legal consequences of the trial were minuscule?it ended in Scopes’s conviction, which was later overturned on a technicality, its symbolic importance was enormous, defining the science-religion debate in the twentieth century.
