"The Warfare of Science" by Andrew Dickson White is published in two volumes by the author. White chronicles the gradual emancipation of science from theology in various fields. Excerpt: "Chapter 1 From Creation to Evolution The literal interpretation of Genesis, including denial of all death and of animals not of use to man before the introduction of sin, gives way to the recognition of the enormous number of species in the world. Various evolutionary ideas opposed progressively by Linnaeus, Cuvier and Agassiz led up to the theory of natural selection proposed by Darwin and Wallace. The initial theological opposition gradually gave way to compromise by most churches. "
