Reconciling Science and Religion The Debate in Early-Twentieth-Century Britain. Peter J. Bowler. University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 2001. 493 pp. $40, £24. ISBN 0-226-06858-7.

In contrast to the clash between evolution and fundamentalism in the United States, Bowler finds conservative scientists and liberal theologians in Britain made a concerted effort to promote a unified perspective on humans' place in the world.
