Re: Author's announcement: Researching Biology and Evolution in the Gulf States (Determann)

An excellent choice of subject.

It would be instructive to conduct a similar examination of the way science is taught in religious as opposed to non-religious Jewish schools in Israel. The most orthodox (Haredi) schools simply ignore modern science and mathematics and devote their entire curriculum to religious studies.

On the other hand the secular State(Mamlachti) school system stresses modern science and mathematics and is a driving force behind Israel's scientific leap forward.

Author's announcement: Researching Biology and Evolution in the Gulf States (Determann)

Filled with gratitude and happiness, I announce the publication of my new book entitled Researching Biology and Evolution in the Gulf States: Networks of Science in the Middle East (London: I.B.Tauris, 2015). My sincere thanks to everybody who contributed to the book or helped and supported me.
