The Scopes Monkey Trial coverNCSE is pleased to offer a free preview (PDF) of Randy Moore and William F. McComas's The Scopes Monkey Trial (Arcadia Publishing, 2016). The preview consists of chapter 5, "The Defense Calls Mr. Bryan," which explains "the Scopes Trial's climactic event: [prosecution attorney William Jennings] Bryan being called by the defense to the witness stand ... Darrow and Bryan were set to go head-to-head in a clash of faith and science."

Published in the popular Images of America series, The Scopes Monkey Trial abounds in images, including previously unpublished photographs, from the Scopes trial, which, as the publisher writes, "has been analyzed by historians, praised and vilified by politicians and preachers, cited in countless legal, political, and theological skirmishes, and retold in plays, movies, museum exhibits, and television documentaries."
