Media reviews
In the latest of Arrow's The Big Idea series, Darwin and Evolution, Paul Strathern demonstrates the scale of Darwin's outstanding insight in this witty and intensely readable biography. With an unashamedly 20th-century perspective, Strathern shows that Darwin, though flawed, was genius enough to overturn the preconceptions of Victorian society. Get out there and buy the rest.
