Book Description

17 Nov 2008
Across a huge range of endeavour, 1859 was the year of mega change. At the beginning of that year Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species. By years end, other people, discoveries and inventions had changed the world forever, and society was converging in a global culture. It was a different world back then, a changing world, a shrinking world. This entertaining book by leading science and history writer Peter Macinnis tells the story of how it came about.
