Examines Wallace's scientific work and also his philosohical concerns, his involvement with theism, and his commitment to land nationalisation and womens' rights. His goal was the dvelopment of an evolutionary cosmology, a unified vision of humanity's place in nature and a society which would ensure the dignity of all individuals.
An Elusive Victorian, a deft analytical contextualization of Wallace, delineates his place in the broader Victorian clashes over science, politics, and religion. . . . Fichman has written a solid and important book . . .--American Scientist
