Discovery Institute Press
Discovery Institute Press is the imprint of the Discovery Institute, a non-profit, non-partisan, public policy think-tank. Discovery Institute's mission is to advance a culture of purpose, creativity and innovation. Discovery Institute is an inter-disciplinary community of scholars and policy advocates dedicated to the reinvigoration of traditional Western principles and institutions and the worldview from which they issued. Discovery Institute has a special concern for the role that science and technology play in our culture and how they can advance free markets, illuminate public policy and support the theistic foundations of the West. This mission is promoted through books, reports, legislative testimony, articles, public conferences and debates, the Institute's own website and publication of books by Discovery Institute scholars, analysts, scientists, and staff.
Current projects explore the fields of technology, science and culture, national defense, transportation, religion and public life, foreign affairs, and cooperation within the bi-national region of "Cascadia."

The War on Humans
In this provocative e-book, Wesley J. Smith exposes efforts by radical activists to reduce the human population by up to 90% and to grant legal rights to animals, plants, and Mother Earth. Smith argues that the ultimate victims of this misanthropic crusade will be the poorest and most vulnerable among us; he urges us to defend both human dignity and the natural environment before it is too late.
Science and Human Origins
Is the evidence for a purely Darwinian account of human origins overwhelming? In this provocative book, three scientists challenge the claim that undirected natural selection is capable of building a human being, critically assess fossil and genetic evidence that human beings share a common ancestor with apes, and debunk claims that the human race could not have started from an original couple.
