Summary
"In 1925, a football coach and part-time biology teacher named John Scopes was arrested for teaching evolution in defiance of Tennessee state law. For eight sweltering days, hundreds of people streamed into Dayton, Tennessee to watch his trial. It became an epic event of the twentieth century, a debate over free speech that spiraled into an all-out duel between science and religion. Featuring two of the century's greatest orators, Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan, the Scopes trial was America's first major media event, with hundreds of reporters and live nationwide radio coverage dispersing the sensational news. ... Monkey Trial weaves together interviews with leading historians, biographers and scientists and pithy observations from Dayton residents, to strip away the myths that obscure the meaning of one of the most important trials of the century"--Container
