About this book

Pocket GIANTS is an accessible and informative series about some of the most fascinating figures in world history – kings, queens, writers and artists.

When Darwin announced his theory of evolution by natural selection, he did more than transform biology. Before his great work, humans were comfortably different from other life, a special creation. By showing how life on Earth evolved, Darwin told us that humans too are part of nature. His decisive experience – a five-year round-the-world voyage on the Beagle – set him thinking about the diversity of life, ideas that would challenge the scientific establishment and Victorian society. Darwin for years built his evidence for evolution, even as he realised that such ideas were leading him straight into controversy and dispute. Charles Darwin: Pocket GIANTS gives a concise account of Darwin's life and work, and makes vividly clear why his work continues to influence us all.
