A brief review of Julian Huxley's evolution (1942),
This review is from: Evolution (Paperback)
In this book J.S Huxley sets out to demonstrate the various ways in which the process of evolution acts at different levels on a species. This is one of the classic texts of Neo-Darwinism which emerged during the 1930s-1940s and to me marked the most exciting period in the history of evolutionary biology. Julian Huxley had a long and distiungished career in biology among other fields and his contribution to the subject shouldn't be understated. For anyone who already has a basic understanding of the process of evolution but wishes to study it in greater detail, they will be find this book a most rewarding and interesting read. Before reading a book like this though I'd first recommend some background reading, such as Charles Darwin's Origin or Richard Dawkins's Climbing Mount Improbable.
The book is 500+ pages long, although in paperback it is quite a big heavy book. The text is well laid out and the paper is of good quality.
