In December 2004, following a Pennsylvanian school board's decision to allow intelligent design to be taught in a high-school biology class, 11 parents sued, sparking a constitutional challenge. Here, reporter Lebo traces the compelling story of this pivotal case descibed by some as a perfect storm' of religious intolerence and an assault on American science education. Lebo follows the story through its suprising twists, pondering whether this was a national war playing out in a small town battle or a small-town political battle playing out on the US stage.'
