    DescriptionThe modern debate over the validity of the opposing intelligent design and evolution positions has continued for over 20 years and ended up in the courtroom more than once. Media Perspectives on Intelligent Design and Evolution seeks to present readers with an even-handed, unbiased explanation of the issues within this heated debate and show how the media subtly "frames"-or depicts-the dispute. Ideal as a reference text for high school and college students, this book examines the controversies in schools in Pennsylvania, Kansas, and Georgia; the major court decisions concerning the teaching of intelligent design in public schools; and the role of organizations such as the Discovery Institute and the National Science Teachers Association in the debate over intelligent design. Specific examples of how media such as network and cable news providers have portrayed the issue of intelligent design in schools demonstrate the powerful influence of media upon public opinion.
