“A marvelous recounting of the 1901 World’s Fair. Every chapter sparkles.… The Buffalo-Niagara Falls extravaganza comes alive in these pages. Highly recommended!” —Douglas Brinkley, author of The Wilderness Warrior The Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York, dazzled with its new rainbow-colored electric lights. It showcased an array of wonders, like daredevils attempting to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel, or the “Animal King” putting the smallest woman in the world and also terrifying animals on display. But the thrill-seeking spectators little suspected that an assassin walked the fairgrounds, waiting for President William McKinley to arrive. In Margaret Creighton’s hands, the result is “a persuasive case that the fair was a microcosm of some momentous facets of the United States, good and bad, at the onset of the American Century” (Howard Schneider, Wall Street Journal).

It should have been a grand day at the Pan-American Exhibition in Buffalo, New York, in 1901. President William McKinley shook hands with well-wishers who had lined up to meet their popular leader. But one man stepped forward with a pistol hidden under a handkerchief wrapped around his right hand. Two shots rang out, both striking McKinley in the abdomen. As the nation puzzled over the shooter and the ease of his crime, the president suffered for days before finally dying. Vice President Theodore Roosevelt was sworn in as president, becoming the youngest person ever to hold the job. The country -- and the world -- would never be the same.

Abraham Lincoln watched a play. James Garfield walked through a train station. William McKinley shook hands with his public. John Kennedy smiled and waved from a motorcade. In these moments shots rang out and four presidents suffered mortal wounds. Some say their assassins were calculating killers. Others say they were madmen guided by strange notions of the world. Assassins' America examines the lives of each killer and his victim. Their stories are full of twists and mysteries, and even today Americans live with lasting effects of these terrible crimes.

يعد هذا الكتاب المنشور عام 1985م من أهم الكتب التي نقدت النظرية الداروينية نقدًا تفصيليًا معمقًا وشاملًا، إن لم يكن أهمها على الإطلاق. ورغم كثرة ما كتب في هذا المجال، يظل هذا الكتاب رغم قِدمه النسبي أصلًا لما جاء بعده، حيث قدم فيه أستاذ علوم الوراثة والكيمياء الحيوية (مايكل دنتون) واحدة من أروع كلاسيكيات نقد الداروينية. فبين شرحه لعدم كفاية الآليات التطورية -من انتخاب طبيعي وطفرات- لانتقال النوع إلى نوع آخر، وتعريجه على سجل الحفريات وكيف أنه يفشل دومًا في تصديق النبؤات الخيالية التي تدعي الداروينية صحتها، ووصوله إلى البيولوجيا الجزيئية، وكيف أنها أكثر المخاطر التي تتحدى التطور، يثبت دنتون بما لا يدع مجالا للشك، أن التطور نظرية في أزمة. دلالة عنوان الكتاب (التطور: نظرية في أزمة) على مضمونه، تدل على أن اختيار مايكل دنتون له كان موفّقًا ودقيقًا وقبل ذلك مُطابقًا ومُصدِّقًا لتأزم النظرية بالفعل، بالإضافة إلى امتلائها بالثغرات والتحكُّمات التي زادت بنيانها المعرفي وهنًا إلى وهن.
