By John Z L on November 23, 2011
Format: Hardcover
This is a splendid collection of papers written by experts in different fields. I have read books about Huxley but this tells me all sorts of things I didn't know such as some chap had the idea of recapitulation back in 1790s.
One impression from the different papers is that Huxley never understood natural slection. Despite being 'Darwin's Bulldog", he just didn't get it.
Dip into these essays and get some new ideas about the past.
