Provides a revolutionary answer to the question, What determines the direction of evolutionary change? Wallace Arthur argues that biases in the ways that embryos can be altered are just as important as natural selection in determining the directions that evolution has taken, including the one that led to the origin of humans. In addition, the book summarizes other important issues relating to how embryonic (and post-embryonic) development evolves.
