Inherit the Wind - Jerome Lawrence, Robert E.  Lee The goal of this play's authors was to use the 1925 Scopes Trial to dramatize the 1950s "McCarthy hearings," so historical accuracy was not their main goal. For the real story of what happened, read the much more recent book Summer For the Gods: The Scopes Trial and America's Continuing Debate Over Science and Religion.

Because it's a political play telling a historically inaccurate story, I regret having read this book, and have no interest in reading it ever again. It's worthless to me.
