Críticas:

A classic text, now updated and expanded to take into account the latest trends among anti-evolutionists, Numbers's carefully researched history is required reading to understand the current controversy. -- Alan Cane Financial Times 20061209 Ronald Numbers is in a unique position to offer some answers. His 1992 book, The Creationists, which Harvard University Press has just reissued in an expanded edition, is probably the most definitive history of anti-evolutionism. Numbers is an eminent figure in the history of science and religion--a past president of both the History of Science Society and the American Society of Church History. But what's most refreshing about Numbers is the remarkable personal history he brings to this subject. He grew up in a family of Seventh-day Adventists and, until graduate school, was a dyed-in-the-wool creationist. When he lost his religious faith, he wrote a book questioning the foundations of Adventism, which created a huge rift in his family. Perhaps because of his background, Numbers is one of the few scholars in the battle over evolution who remains widely respected by both evolutionists and creationists. In fact, he was once recruited by both sides to serve as an expert witness in a Louisiana trial on evolution. (He went with the ACLU.) -- Steve Paulson Salon.com [An] informative, well-researched intellectual history of the origins of the contemporary creation science movement...Numbers offers a historical analysis of the various permutations in creation science thought, starting with the original response in 1859 to Charles Darwin's Origin of Species and ending with creationism's spread across the globe during the 1990s. -- Pius Charles Murray Library Journal 20070115 This book is an intellectual history of religiously inspired anti-evolutionism, primarily in the US, since the latter 19th century. It is a meticulous work by a distinguished historian--with 431 pages of text, followed by 133 pages of detailed notes on sources. Some readers might find it heavy going, but Numbers writes in an engaging style and keeps the narrative moving briskly, writing about the human qualities as well as the theology of leading creationists. -- Francis B. Harrold Reports of the National Center for Science Education A great reference work. -- Ian Hacking The Nation 20071008 A welcome addition to the burgeoning scholarship on contemporary interactions between science and religion. Since the first edition of The Creationists was published fourteen years ago, conflicts involving evolution have continued to make news; so much has happened, in fact, that a new edition is sorely needed. -- Stephen P. Weldon Isis 20071201

Reseña del editor:

In light of the embattled status of evolutionary theory, particularly as "intelligent design" makes headway against Darwinism in the schools and in the courts, this now classic account of the roots of creationism assumes new relevance. Expanded and updated to account for the appeal of intelligent design and the global spread of creationism, "The Creationists" offers a thorough, clear, and balanced overview of the arguments and figures at the heart of the debate. Praised by both creationists and evolutionists for its comprehensiveness, the book meticulously traces the dramatic shift among Christian fundamentalists from acceptance of the earth's antiquity to the insistence of present-day scientific creationists that most fossils date back to Noah's flood and its aftermath. Focusing especially on the rise of this "flood geology", Ronald L. Numbers chronicles the remarkable resurgence of anti-evolutionism since the 1960s, as well as the creationist movement's tangled religious roots in the theologies of late-19th and early 20th Century Baptists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, and Adventists, among others. His book offers valuable insight into the origins of various "creation science" think tanks and the people behind them. It also goes a long way toward explaining how creationism, until recently viewed as a "peculiarly American" phenomenon, has quietly but dynamically spread internationally - and found its expression outside Christianity in Judaism and Islam.

Descripción Harvard University Press November 2006, 2006. Paper Back. Condición: New. Probably the best historical study of the dramatic rise of creation science this century, and its roots in late nineteenth-century Protestant theology. Numbers has supplemented his original 1992 publication with two new chapters on the rise of the Intelligent Design movement and the global spread of creation science. Sometimes a book's commendations are important to pass along, and this is one such case. From George Marsden, the dean of historians of Fundamentalism in this country: 'In this monumental history of the young-Earth movement, there is no bitterness or cynicism. Rather, Numbers tells the story with remarkable even-handedness.This marvelously detailed, engagingly told and sometimes astonishing history has the intrigue of a Chaim Potok novel.' And from the influential Henry Morris, founder of the Institute for Creation Science: 'For those interested in the background of the modern revival of creationism, whether evolutionists or creationists, this book is a rich mine of information and historical insights.' Numbers is Professor of the History of Science and Medicine at the University of Wisconsin. Nº de ref. del artículo: 20101020180088
