Book Description: Grove Press, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 200 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. No book has changed our conception of ourselves more than Charles Darwin s On the Origin of Species. The idea that living things, including humans, gradually evolve through natural selection is nearly as controversial today as it was upon publication over a century ago, and it remains at the heart of an intense debate between scientists and creationists. In her illuminating history of On the Origin of Species, Janet Browne, Charles Darwin s foremost biographer, shows why it can fairly claim to be the greatest science book ever published. Browne describes the long genesis of Darwin s theories, from his early readings as a university student and his five-year voyage on the Beagle, to his debates with contemporaries and experiments in his garden. What emerges is a vivid and accessible introduction to the book that permanently altered our understanding of what it is to be human. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780802143464

Book Description: Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. Charles Darwins foremost biographer, Janet Browne, delivers a vivid and accessible introduction to the book that permanently altered our understanding of what it is to be human. A sensation on its publication in 1859, The Origin of the Species profoundly shocked Victorian readers by calling into question the belief in a Creator with its description of evolution through natural selection. And Darwins seminal work is nearly as controversial today. In her illuminating study, Browne delves into the long genesis of Darwins theories, from his readings as a university student and his five-year voyage on the Beagle, to his debates with contemporaries and experiments in his garden. She explores the shock to Darwin when he read of competing scientists similar discoveries and the wide and immediate impact of Darwins theories on the world. As one of the launch titles in Atlantic Monthly Press Books That Changed the World series, Brownes history takes readers inside The Origin of the Species and shows why it can fairly claim to be the greatest science book ever published.
