5.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive biography of one of the great men of science, 7 Oct 2012
This review is from: Darwin (Paperback)
Darwin by Adrian Desmond and James Moore, Michael Joseph, London, 1991, 832 ff

By Howard Jones

I can add little to the detailed reviews of this book already published except to say that I agree that it is an exemplary biography of one of the great men of science. There are several short, succinct biographies of this great biologist by Jonathan Howard (Oxford), Wilma George (Fontana) and Mark Ridley (Granta), and books dealing specifically with Darwin's theology by Philip Kitcher (Oxford) and Nick Spencer (SPCK), especially in relation to Intelligent Design. But Desmond and Moore have given us a comprehensive, yet highly readable, account of Darwin's life and work, with all due credit given to Alfred Russel Wallace and his part in the development of the story of evolution. This book is an authoritative work and highly recommended. There is at the end a comprehensive Notes section, an extensive Bibliography, and a detailed Index.
