Evolution Challenges goes beyond the science versus religion debate to ask why evolution is so often rejected as a legitimate scientific fact, focusing on a wide range of cognitive, socio-cultural, and motivational factors that make concepts such as evolution difficult to grasp.

Science & Education Evolution Challenges is without question one of the most outstanding scholary titles on evolution education that I have read in the past 20 years. The diversity of scholary perspectives and methodological approaches in this collection exemplifies why evolution education continues to be one of the most fecund, fascinating and informative areas of science education research. I expect this innovative collection of studies to impact how the community envisions
challenges of evolution education for years to come.
