Traces the history of evolutionary thought and challenges many assumptions, suggesting for example that Darwin's true roots lie in Germany, not his native England, that Russian evolutionism is more significant than many are prepared to allow, and that the true influence on twentieth-century evolution biology was not Charles Darwin at all, but his contemporary, Herbert Spencer.

New Biological Books "As this volume well demonstrates, questioning the existence, source, and nature of heresy in science can not only be highly profitable but also thought-provoking." Journal of the History of Biology
