8vo. xiv, 415 pp. Appendix, index; marginal pencil notes on index, browning between page 100-101 due to inserted newspaper. Yellow-stamped red cloth, spine faded. Good +. "The author [MAYNARD SHIPLEY],. . .traces here briefly and in a most interesting manner the fundamentalist attacks on evolution and modernism. Through Mississippi, Louisiana, North Carolina and through other Southern states, he proceeds to the shame of Tennessee, quoting from the press items which reveal that there is hardly a state in the United States that has not an unscientific fundamentalist group. The cases of such fundamentalists as Straton and Bryan are quite fully revealed, as well as the enlightened dictums of Fosdick and Jordan. For anyone interested in the trend of American thought, this is a highly stimulating volume." –JAMA, The War on Modern Science. A Short History of the Fundamentalist Attacks on Evolution and Modernism. 1927; 89 (14):1173. Other (4 pages) of interesting reviews are inserted in the book.
