One of the most controversial books ever written... The classic that changed the way we look at the world-- and ourselves.

In the words of Ashley Montagu, "Next to the Bible no work has been quite as influential, in virtually every aspect of human thought, as The Origin of Species."

With an introduction by Sir Julian Huxley, this edition reminds us why Darwin's work exploded into public controversy and revolutionized the course of science--and continues to transform our views of the world as a new millennium dawns.

"Next to the Bible no work has been

quite as influential."--Ashley Montagu

* Includes an introduction by Sir Julian Huxley

From the Back Cover:

Perhaps the most readable and accessible of the great works of the scientific imagination, The Origin of Species sold out on the day it was published in 1859. Theologians quickly labeled Charles Darwin the most dangerous man in England, and, as the Saturday Review noted, the uproar over the book quickly 'passed beyond the bounds of the study and lecture-room into the drawing-room and the public street.' Yet after reading it, Darwin's friend and colleague T.H. Huxley had a different reaction: 'How extremely stupid not to have thought of that.'
