9780520048805: Evolution: The History of an Idea

Peter J. Bowler's comprehensive, fascinating account of the history of evolutionary theories introduces specialist and nonspecialist alike to one of the most potent scientific ideas of modern times. This new edition is updated in its content and includes an augmented bibliography that offers an unparalleled guide to further reading. As in the original edition, Bowler's even-handed approach not only clarifies the history of his controversial subject but also adds significantly to our understanding of contemporary debates over it. The idea of evolution continues to evolve.

Review:

"Clarity of purpose and powers of organization shine forth from every page." -- Roy S. Porter, Times Literary Supplement

"Combines skilled historical research with superior writing . . . synthesiz[ing] the complex, often emotion-filled strands of evolutionary theory into a noteworthy, updated whole without 'talking down' or using sensationalism." -- Benjamin J. Novak, Science Teacher

"Throughout the book, I was struck by the way Bowler compresses complicated ideas into a page or two, and still finds space for illuminating comment. . . . I salute what I believe is a superb job." -- Colin Patterson, Nature

From the reviews of the first edition:"This rich and energetic survey of the history of evolutionary thought . . . merits a wide use among history of science students, biologists, and historians. Bowler is to be congratulated for his achievement." -- Richard Burkhardt, Jr., Journal of the History of Medicine
