History, Humanity and Evolution by James Richard Moore

Book Description

History, Humanity and Evolution brings together thirteen original essays by prominent scholars in the history of evolutionary thought. The volume is intended both to represent the best of today's research in the field and also to celebrate the work of the distinguished historian, John C. Greene, whose historical writings have had a unique influence on this volume's contributors as well as the field as a whole. Using contemporary sources as diverse as medicine, literature, and natural history tableaux, and drawing on the resources of publishing history, feminist scholarship, and the histories of politics, sociology, and philosophy, the contributors offer new perspectives not only on familiar figures such as Erasmus and Charles Darwin, Lamarck, Chambers, Huxley, and Haeckel, but also on many lesser known participants in the evolutionary debates. The volume contains a fascinating introductory conversation with John C. Greene and an afterword by him that responds to the contributors' essays.

Descent of Man by James Richard Moore Descent of Man, Paperback (February 2004)

Named by Sigmund Freud as 'one of the ten most significant books' ever written, Darwin's "Descent of Man" continues to shape the way we think about what it is that makes us uniquely human. In this book, the authors call for a radical re-assessment of the book, arguing that its core ideas on race were fired by Darwin's hatred of slavery.
