Charles Darwin changed our view of life on earth and man's place in the natural order for ever when he wrote "The Origin of Species" and "The Descent of Man". He contributed in a major way to the study of geology and virtually invented the science of ecology. In this new life of one of the most written-about figures of history and science, Cyril Aydon combines historical accuracy with exemplary, lucid science to get to the heart of the man. In his consideration of "The Origins of Species", he offers a ringside seat at the splendid row that followed publication. And facilitates a full appreciation of the physical and intellectual excitement of the Beagle voyage. With a look at the changing fortunes of Darwinian theories over the past two centuries, the eminent naturalist still clearly succeeds in upsetting the status quo with international debate continuing to rage about the teaching in schools of creationism alongside or instead of evolution.
