Product description

Review

Berry tells this story, "one of the most celebrated in the history of science, " beautifully.

... this collection of [Wallace's] writing, each section introduced by relevant remarks on Wallace's thinking at the time, is enthralling.

In Infinite Tropics, Andrew Berry does a wonderful job of excerpting Wallace's many writings ... Berry tells this story, 'one of the most celebrated in the history of science', beautifully.

Berry's anthology of the most important writings ... should be read to appreciate fully the sophistication of Wallace s biological thought.

Berry's editorial commentary is succinct, accurate, and generally right to the point, and he has chosen his selections wisely, giving his readers a splendid, if somewhat teasing, glimpse of Wallace's genius.

About the Author

Alfred Russel Wallace (1823 - 1913) was a British naturalist, explorer, geographer, anthropologist and biologist. He is best known for independently proposing a theory of evolution due to natural selection that prompted Charles Darwin to publish his own theory. Andrew Berry is a research associate at Harvard University's Museum of Comparative Zoology. He contributes to, among others, the "London Review of Books," "Nature," "Slate" and "The New York Observer." Stephen Jay Gould (1941-2002) was the Alexander Agassiz Professor of Zoology and Professor of Geology at Harvard University. He published over twenty books, received the National Book and National Book Critics Circle Awards, and a MacArthur Fellowship.
