About this book

Tom Frame examines Darwin's profound influence on Australian thinking. He provides useful contextual material on Darwin's life and times, including: his 1836 visit to Australia in HMS Beagle; the background to historic disputes and contemporary debates about Darwin's motivations and methods; his scientific conclusions and their social consequences, and outlines the various ways in which Darwin's work continues to shape Australian public policy and private behaviour.
