Politics of Evolution by Adrian J. Desmond
Book DescriptionLooking for the first time at the cut-price anatomy schools rather than genteel Oxbridge, Desmond winkles out pre- Darwinian evolutionary ideas in reform-minded and politically charged early nineteenth-century London. In the process, he reveals the underside of London intellectual and social life in the generation before Darwin as it has never been seen before." "The Politics of Evolution" is intellectual dynamite, and certainly one of the most important books in the history of science published during the past decade."--Jim Secord, "Times Literary Supplement" "One of those rare books that not only stakes out new territory but demands a radical overhaul of conventional wisdom."--John Hedley Brooke, "Times Higher Education Supplement"

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.

"Unquestionably the finest [biography] ever written about Darwin... Darwin has now become, and properly, the quintessentially socially embedded scientist. Desmond and Moore are brilliant in their pursuit of this truly unifying theme."-Stephen Jay Gould
