Darwin -by- Adrian Desmond & James Moore. Biology. Biography of Charles Darwin. Even more than Mark or Freud, the affable naturalist Charles Darwin has transformed the way we see ourselves on the planet; the authors show how, after his five-year voyage as a naturalist on the 'Beagle', he struggled to develop his theory of evolution as England tottered towards revolution; the authors also show how Darwin arrived at his disturbing theory and why, when the 'Origin of Species' was published, the theory appealed to the rising professionals; based on newly transcribed and unpublished letters and contains 90 photographs, many of which have never been published before.
