About this book
There are three new additons to Arrow's paperback series on science and scientists, "The Big Idea", this month. Written by an expert in the chosen field, each book lays down the basics of the subject, describes the life and work of key scientists, and assesses the extent to which society has been affected by that scientific field. Clear, lively and accessible, designed for specialists and non-specialists alike.
When it was first published, Charles Darwin's theory of evolution scandalised the world. But in the context of modern times, how do we grasp just how original and daring it was in 1859? This book looks at the life of Charles Darwin and his reluctant rise from being a quiet and eccentric bug enthusiast to one of the greatest scientists of all time.
