About this book

In this pioneering study of the first major challenges to Darwinism, Bowler examines the competing theories of evolution, identifies their intellectual origins, and describes the process by which the modern concept of evolution emerged.

"Establishes the context and the necessity for reconciliation between Darwinism and the other biological subdisciplines that occurred in the years following the 1920s."
American Scientist
