Product Description

Review

"In his exploration of the crucial role of Malthusian thought in the evolutionary theory of liberal radicalism, Hale has provided scholars with a sort of sequel to Adrian Desmond's Politics of Evolution. Impressive in its scope, Political Descent is a bold and exciting book." (Bernard Lightman, editor of Victorian Science in Context)"

nature and nurture 28 Feb. 2015
By historian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A thoughtful and well-researched book, in which Hale complicates historical and contemporary assumptions that Darwinian evolution and Malthusian competition necessarily went hand-in-hand. He carefully illustrates how in Victorian England, evolutionary theory was equally compatible with socialist interpretations of natural order. Worth reading!
