4.0 out of 5 stars Sums up the current situation on civil liberties well, 12 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great book that sums up the current situation on civil liberties, privacy and why we need them. Appendix 1, which details the laws passed that curtail the civil liberties and assault individual privacy in UK and US make for a very sobering read - at the very least this part of the book csn be read to see the creep of state powers

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Collection, 25 Feb. 2004
I have purchased this book on a trip to Baltimore and if not for that I would have been ignorant of this rather excellent collection. This book does not shy away from controversies and a wide range of subjects have been incorporated. However do not expect a balanced discussion of every issue covered as each piece is written from a certain viewpoint. If you are looking for short(ish), sharp introductions or even more advanced knowledge on various fields of science then this book is certainly very enlightening. It has definitely persuaded me to buy the 2000, 2001 and 2003 versions and I am eagerly waiting future issues.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thorough review of ID, 17 July 2003
This book is an excellent and a thorough review of creationism and the criticism of the evolutionary theory as well as the answers to the critiques. Despite the title, the book covers a lot of the Young Earth creationism as well and for which I am thankful. The contents cover various classics such as the "Panda's Thumb" argument of the late Stephen Gould as expected but a section of the book is devoted to the philosophical aspects of creationism and more importantly the philosophy of science which goes to the roots of the scientific methodology and answer more questions than it sets out to achieve. The book even covers relevant probability theory and therefore all in all encompasses information from as diverse fields of philosophy, theology, mathematics, paleontology etc. However on the negative side it is almost a tome by itself which makes the reading physically harder and one of the issues that is surprisingly lightly touched - or missed by me - is the creationist claim of moral high ground and lack of moral fibre in a world dominated by evolutionary theory and hence the 4 stars. All in all a book that includes papers from specialist publications that everyone involved or interested in the evolution/creation controversy should read in order to form an informed opinion.
